Today, we've collated all of the marketing posts, podcasts and books from the team to help you improve your marketing skills. Here are the best marketing tips of 2020.

We hear from Lucinda Brant, Australian based historical fiction author, Dan Willcocks, U.K. based dark fiction writer and Clare Lydon, UK based lesbian romance fiction author.
