I know what I said the last time I did an entry about my starting to promote my book again. And I did precisely that:
I went to an adoption event at a local no-kill shelter soon after I made my last post and said I would be donating $1.00 for every book I sold during the event. I wound up selling 14 books and donated $14.00 to the shelter. Given I must collect sales tax on every book sold. I didn't want to be bogged down having to make coin change I simply added 5 cents, rounding the price of the book to $ 7.00 which included of all of the tax due on the price of the book I had lowered it to.
Unfortunately, the press coverage I had hoped for didn't materialized so I could announce that I would be donating a portion of all the royalties I would be receiving to the shelter. At the same time I attempted to do a Thundeclap event but unfortunately I couldn't get enough supports for it. I also failed in my Thunderclap attempt the following month as well.
No one seems to be interested in interviewing me for their blogs or doing a SpotLight on me or my book. My tweets only get a small handful of Retweets. And with all the talk shows on their summer hiatus I've got to wait until September to them to start taping their shows again.
The good news is someone just told me of a blog site which is for Indie Authors like myself and offers a free posting of books by independent authors once a month. All I have to do is to find the piece of paper I wrote it on.
For some reason I can't figure why no one seems to be interested in an award winning children's book [ages 5 - 8] which attempts to teach it's young readers about the acceptance of others for who they are and not what they are.
If anyone is interested in know more about my book and the award it had won here's the direct link to the entry i made here
THANKS IN ADVANCE YOUR KIND ASSISTANCE IN THIS MATTER. ! ! !
