Currently doing a giveaway on Goodreads.com
Have one copy out for review, have a list of 4 more to contact
Checking into local authors' fairs
Would like to contact local papers...but a little flustered on how to go about making my own press release...it feels funny writing an 'article' about myself! Would love suggestions/tips!
Plan to donate copies to local and school libraries
It would be great if I could sell this many copies every month, but December will be the big test, as all of my friends and family have purchased their copies and now I will have to depend on the readers out there in the world.
Thanks again for all of your support!
