As kids, we’re taught to be modest and graciously accept praise, rather than proudly repeating it.

One, you’re not promoting yourself — you’re promoting your book.
That still might seem a bit self-congratulatory, though, which leads to her second point — that book promotion is a public service.
Huh? Well, there are readers out there who will want this book ... but how can they enjoy it if they’re not aware of it?
