6 Ways You Can Help to Promote Marcus and the Amazons

I'm  taking what my cousin, Stephanie Philp, said to me:
 "If you believe your book is worthwhile you have an OBLIGATION to promote it."

I believe Marcus and the Amazons is worthwhile, especially because...

1. It's a great little story that will stimulate all kinds of discussions
2.  Marcus is respectful of others even when he disagrees with their actions
3. The story dramatizes the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, the Civil Rights movement and Marcus Garvey by placing the events in a different context.
4. Marcus resolves conflict without resorting to violence
5. The story shows that actions/motives are not always as simple as they may seem.

Did I mention its a great little story?

I'm also re-purposing a post by Jody Hedlund, 10 Simple Ways to Support Authors You Love,.
