Kourtney provides a peek into what an author workday encompasses: writing, revising, contract negotiation with a traditional publisher, interacting with an agent, processing orders for signed copies, tracking personal sales, maintaining social media, and setting up events to keep the promotional wheel in perpetual motion.
