Welcome to Day #17 of Bloggers Read Across the Globe (BRAG) – Promoting Children’s Reading and Literacy
As the first annual BRAG event comes to an end, I’m happy to share one more article about book marketing. After all, we still love books. . . and seeing a child reading for pleasure reminds me of my childhood. So when I saw my young granddaughter immersed in a story book recently, I couldn’t help taking this photo.
You may recognize her as YaYa, one of the main characters in my children’s picture book, Sunbelievable. Her love for reading is boundless, and we’re forever helping her discover wonderful new books and authors.
That’s one of the reasons today’s article about book marketing fits right into the theme of BRAG. YaYa inspired me to publish my book, but I had a steep learning curve.
One of the resources I came to rely on is Joel Friedlander’s wonderful blog, The Book Designer — Practical Advice to Help Build Better Books. Thanks to Joel, YaYa’s dream became a reality. But that was just the beginning of the next part of the journey.
Won’t you help me thank Joel by visiting his blog and reading about ways to get independently published books into bookstores.
