A few days ago, I saw a really great tweet thread about selling books when everyone is focused on politics.:
Hi, ghosties. 👻 Let’s talk about books and selling books and promoting books under the current administration for a moment, shall we? https://t.co/sXFT6GAUiz

Inspired by that, I posted a thread of my own, “hand selling” each of the books we’ve published. I decided to paste the text of those tweets in here, so that I can share it in other ways, too:
