Something kind of neat happened this week. My sister lives in the town we grew up in - about 3000 miles to the east of me ( and a few light light years away in time and space). She was in the local library looking for a book on hiking trails in the area and as she browsed the offerings, lo and behold, she spots my first book on the shelf. She had no idea they stocked my book and neither did I.
The book marketing experts will probably use this as an example of being sure to contact everyone you know from your past and let them know you have written a book - like the library system in your home town for instance. That makes sense I guess. I was just thinking of a few high school English teachers that I should contact with the news that I'm in the local library and my mean, cynical self would add - how about you?
How about you? Have you written your book yet?
