This is super helpful and comprehensive, thank you! I’ll bear it in mind as I look to self-promote my next, self-published book. Struggling a bit with how to do that in these “uncertain times” – mailing physical books may prove challenging, for example – but hopefully I’ll figure it out.

Do bookstagrammers prefer to get a book a few month ahead of publication, or is it okay to send a book knowing they may not get to it before publication day?

Thanks so much!
