I wanted to forward this to you and get your perspective on it. I have received a number of emails from people wanting to “market” my book, but the insights I have received from your book have been better than what they were going to offer. Anyway, I just wanted to get your thoughts on this email.
Thanks for your time.
They’re scams. Victoria Strauss (God bless her) published an article with a huge list of them RIGHT HERE.
If you want to hire a reputable book marketing professional, you can get free quotes RIGHT HERE.
And, remember: Whenever a so-called “marketing company” uses SPAM to try to sell their own services to you, they’re instantly proving they have NO idea what they’re doing. Avoid spammers and telemarketers at all costs!

I admire any writer who wants to tackle a blind character. But so many writers take up this challenge and FAIL. They research blindness by reading other fiction books, by observing their blind colleagues and acquaintances, and by tying on a blindfold and pretending to be blind themselves.
I understand the challenges your characters face, their triumphs, their hopes and their fears, because I've lived them. I work with people who have varying degrees of blindness every day, so I've seen every challenge, every situation you could imagine.
Let me share my knowledge to improve your writing. You can create blind characters that readers will fall in love with.
