Book Marketing and Giveaway!

I presented a workshop on book marketing last Saturday to new and upcoming authors.  As I returned home after an eventful and productive day I realized that I had been neglecting one of the book marketing tools I had suggested they all use.  Yes, this blog has been lacking new posts of late.  I have an excuse!  I always have one of those.  Truthfully, my energies had been directed at preparing the book marketing information for the WOW! Write on Workshop Conference by theInspirational Women Authors and promoting my newest books, The Hard Run and Gary Learns to Skate.
Here is a little trivia about Gary Learns to Skate …

  • It is a children’s book based on a true story. 
  • Very little poetic license was implemented!
  • My granddaughter is the illustrator and she did a fantastic job!
  • My favorite illustration is the skating flamingo!
  • Half of the profits are hers.
In an effort to practice what I preached last Saturday and demonstrate the effectiveness of social marketing, I am going to hold a contest for a copy of Gary Learns to Skate. 

These are the rules …
  1. You must visit this blog post for a chance to win.
  2. To prove you were here leave a comment on this post or message me on Facebook with the answer to this Trivia Question: What is my favorite illustration in Gary Learns to Skate?
  3. Sharing this blog post on your Facebook page will earn you a second entry into the contest.
  4. No cheating!
  5. This contest will run through Friday, June 5.
Let’s see how effective this contest can be in proving the value of social media in book marketing. I will be presenting in future workshops from the Inspirational Women Authors.  This information will help develop those workshops. I can’t wait to see who wins a copy of Gary Learns to Skate!


Happy Running!
