Facebook Groups In Practice

I have many Facebook Groups I enjoy being part of, but admittedly, I feel like each one of them were lacking something or another.

That’s why I plan to make the Facebook group we created in the video, Self Publishing Books, a community where indie authors and self-publishers can go to learn and grow together.
