Welcome to Day #4 of Bloggers Read Across the Globe — Promoting Children’s Reading and Literacy
Children’s Literacy Headline: The average kindergarten student has seen more than 5,000 hours of television, having spent more time in front of the TV than it takes to earn a bachelor’s degree. Read more about children’s literacy at The Reading Tub.
Today, you’ll find my audio Q&A interview with book marketing giant, John Kremer, who talks about effective ways to conduct a book blog tour! I’ve learned so much from John while launching my new career as an independently published children’s book author. His huge library of resources for authors and publishers is amazing, and his coaching and websites helped me focus on relationship building — one of his primary marketing messages.
Please head over to John’s website Book Market to hear our book tour Q&A interview!
