Brian Basilico: Hey, everybody, it's Brian and I am so excited to have our guest today, Sandra Beckwith and she is a book marketing coach and trust me, I wrote a book, I marketed it, it's tough. So Sandra is going to give us some ideas on how when you write a book – and hopefully you're working on one – that you can have some great ideas on how to get it out into the marketplace and get people to pay attention.
So Sandra, how are you doing today?
