WANT TO HELP?
Book sales are a marketing game. Over the past years, getting any attention in print is nearly impossible, and the number of online sites has skyrocked, making notice of any writer a real challenge. So the game becomes like Jenga—balancing increments of small activities and actions until they become noticeable. Libraries offer an immediate outlet for attention. They often pay attention to their patrons’ requests. Even if they can’t buy a particular book, simply mentioning the title and author helps build notice.
If you’d like to help me reach more people, please visit your local library and either ask them to order my books and/or request that they check a copy out to you, if if by interlibrary loan. Bit by bit by bit, readers increase, and we’ll set the stage for the next book, too. Thanks!
