“Squirrel Mafia” needs your help


I have mentioned a few times my short book called Squirrel Mafia which is a non fiction book. Publishers did take an interest in it but they wanted me to make it fictional. Maybe down the road I can do that but for now the truth about these varmints need to be told.

I will be self publishing it soon. The dates have been finalized for the cover reveal for Squirrel Mafia which will include the media kit information. I am looking for some help. If you have time and are open to posting on your own blog about the release check out the form below. The cover release will be August 1st while the book will be released August 12th. This is truly a book that I am so very excited about. It has seen a lot of edits, picture changes and exchange of ideas and emails between my editor and myself. I am proud of the end product. It has come a long way.



Marketing: Small Places



When you’re starting out as an author the idea of marketing yourself, whether you are self published or traditionally published, can get a bit scary. One has to think of anything that can help. A local theater in town is now hosting local writers in their lobby. All that is required is a few copies of one’s book and a framed picture. Fortunately I knew one of the actress who is also a fellow author. I was able to showcase my book for a few weeks to the patrons of the arts.

This is a different avenue and one that would never have come across my desk if I didn’t know my friend. But it just shows to think outside the box and don’t strictly go with conventional marketing. Every piece that can give the opportunity to show your works should be considered, even the ones that you have not thought of yet.
