Christmas thoughts!

How to promote a book that will have a limited market?

Unless there is a huge advertising budget, then it is very difficult however … reviews are very significant and important aspects of marketing.

Below is, to me, the ultimate review that I would dream about getting and, bonus, it is focused on “Just Thinking”- a book of easy to understand poetic verse about life.

The budding poet on your Christmas list (or perhaps yourself) would surely enjoy a book of “life poetry” which is easy to understand, and yet prove to be thought provoking.

Do you dare to explore my past, knowing that some aspects may well parallel your own history?

The review:

“MY ADVICE as an English major and having a Master’s in literature and being in LOVE with poetry is…BUY THIS BOOK. Colin’s poetry is not only understandable (although pieces of it come back to “haunt” me and I take the book down from my shelf and reread a particular poem often), but moving and interesting, and worth the price of the book. I even used one of his poems with my Advanced Writing Class, and it caused the most wonderful discussion and a real “ah-ha” teaching moment. I highly recommend it!”

    • It comes down to the basic reason for publishing ones own work doesn’t it. If the goal is to make money … good luck if you do not have a publisher aggressively pushing such that they are prepared to carry some of the inherently high promotional costs (no problem if you are a celeb or controversial politician!). My goal was simply to get some of my writings “out there”, and am very happy with “Just Thinking”, “Who Said I was up for Adoption?” and “The Odessa Chronicles”. I do not have the means to promote in the mass media, but I can still use this Blog and FB etc. 🙂
