Marketing Today

Marketing is key to selling your book whether you have a traditional publisher or some variation of self-publishing, no longer a dirty word in the world of book selling. Unless you pay a book promoter/marketer, you will be doing most or all of the marketing yourself.

With this information in mind, I will be experimenting with ideas of marketing my book before it is sold. Readers of this blog will be the first to see characters and the world they inhabit. There will be flash fiction, short stories, and games you can play with the characters.


Book Review

Ann Brashares
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
(DB53252 this number is for other blind people using NLS)

I found this book to definitely be a YA title. This is not a bad thing, but it will not appeal to a wide range of adults like many of YA novels do. The writing kept me engaged and that is why I finished it, especially as a bedtime read.

The issues in the book had a strong adolescent girl pull to them and thing this is what will limit the audience for the book. One of the girls is faced with a very grown up issue while another struggles with her perspective and childish behavior. If you are a mother, you will find the book endearing. In my view, this novel would be a good read for girls from twelve to fifteen.
