The word is spreading.

The word is finally getting out around town about my book. My two best promoters so far are my nephew and granddaughter. When I visited my brother my nephew asked me if I would go to school and talk on career day about being an author. My granddaughter gave her teacher a business card with my book information. The teacher asked her if I would come in and talk to the class about my book.
My books will be arriving soon so I started to plan a few book signings. My sister-in-law is working on a press release. Tom has my web site set up for taking orders and shipping them to you when you make an order. We have some orders and as soon as the books come in we will ship them. Others want to pick their books up at the book signings.

The book is ready to order.

Finally, the book is finished! “Help! I Married a Cartoon Character” is being printed currently. I expect my first shipment of books in a couple of weeks.
The publishers determined the cost of my book. The Hard Cover is $23.95 and the Paperback is $13.95. I am offering a numbered Hard Cover book for $28.95 for a limited time. Go to my web site and order a book today! It would make a great Christmas gift.
My very first order was from my best friend of many years. She ordered 4 Hard Back books.
This book selling is also getting a little dangerous. Last night, Tom and I went to a wedding reception. Their theme was western and there was a bucking bull by the dance floor for the daring to ride. A friend came over to me and said, “I will buy 5 books if you ride the bull!” I said, “No, I don’t think so!” She was persistent, “Come on 5 books! Right now I will buy 5 books!” I must admit that I was tempted.

In production.

I checked the web of my publisher and my book is finally in production. Now I just have to wait. My work is done. I guess it’s time to get serious about advertising. My publishing plus package includes a marketing workbook and kit, but I’m not sure when I will be getting it. I am going to E-mail them Monday and find out. I could read it now since I know absolutely about advertising.
