Also, I ordered an ebook from her site. She and co-author Gwynne Spencer wrote Ferocious Promotion for Timid Authors. For $7.95, I thought it was worth the download. I even printed it (64 pages) for easier reading and put it in one of the pocket folders I stock up on when they're on sale (like 10 for $1).
But I digress. I have to say it's the best money I've spent in awhile. Some of the ideas are obvious, and I was already looking for places to approach about booksignings. But there was so much more! The subtitle is Inexpensive Insights on Selling Your Book--and they are. An investment of time is the only real expense, and time I have in abundance now.
I'm going to post the eleven chapter titles just FYI:
- Strategy, the Ground Rules
- Collecting Your Tools
- Back to School with Educational Groups
- Shhh, Libraries are a Great Secret
- Do Good Through Civic and Charitable Groups
- Show Off at Conventions and Fairs
- Commercial Venues Make Money
- Scoop the Press
- Wrapping Up Loose Ends
- Keep Finding New Ways
Anyway, if you're in the market for writing venues and good tips, follow the link and take a look at Funds for Writers.
