    Thank you to Melanie Harlow and her team for the advance reader copy. Thank you to Social Butterfly PR for the blogger materials. Make me Yours, releases on November 23rd! I am a member of Melanie Harlow’s Review Team, this does not affect the honesty and integrity of my review. I am so excited for Mel’s next book.

    The Marketing of Discretion by Karina Halle

    This is the final essay I wrote for my Publishing class on Marketing for Book Publishers. The assignment was to explain the marketing campaign of a recent release.
