Lillian Brummet began her writing career after a life-changing vehicle accident prompted her to reconsider the direction of her life. Having been a business owner for 6 years and taking many courses on business management, she had a good understanding of what being self-employed involved and was familiar with office procedures - always ready to improve her skills however, throughout her 13 years in the realm of writing she has taken many writing courses and read as many writer's manual books she could get her hands on. Starting as a freelance writer, then working in a few staff positions and a 7-year stint as a professional book reviewer, she then dove into the realm of book writing. Now, she is the award-winning author of 5 books including her 378 page guide for authors titled: Purple Snowflake Marketing - How To Make Your Book Stand Out In A Crowd. Her reputation online as a marketing guru and pink bunny (because her marketing efforts keep going and going), led her to produce this guide offering effective, efficient marketing tools for authors helping them avoid pitfalls along the way.
