About the Author:

Don’t be fooled by her name - Debbie Young is old enough to have had 30 years of experience in journalism, PR, marketing and publishing. An enthusiastic writer and blogger, she now draws on all her past lives to help new authors sell their books through the services of her consultancy, Off the Shelf Book Promotions. On the company's website, she runs a highly acclaimed, easy to follow blog of book promotion tips that supplement and complement the advice in "Sell Your Books!" The website also features thoughtful and extensive reviews of the works of self-published and independent authors, including many by SilverWood's clients. She also writes a popular personal blog about village and family life called Young By Name. She is currently working on a book that will bring together the best of her Young By Name posts and a collection of short stories inspired by listening to the radio entitled Tuning In. Both of these are due for publication in 2013. Debbie is an Author Member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi). To the benefit of authors everywhere, she is also helping to raise a new generation of enthusiastic readers by working part-time at the national children’s reading charity, Readathon. Born and raised in Sidcup, Kent, Debbie now lives in a small Gloucestershire village with her Scottish husband and their daughter. One day, she hopes to have read all the books on her "must read” list – and to catch up on her sleep. 25% of the author’s royalties from Sell Your Books! will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, working towards a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.
