As some of you know, The Runaway Schoolhouse is in print and on kindle for the past few months. (The first few pages are here on this site for you to read, if you like).
I believed, foolishly, that this achievement was 9/10’s of the job done.
I was wrong. It is the first step.
I have received much help, thanks to all who have offered advice and support to me. And I have learnt that in today’s world. a writer has to become a Jack-of-all-trades. The greatest hurdle is Marketing and in this I thank Emu Ink.ie and Laurence O’Bryan, the founder of BooksGoSocial.com
But I still have to spend time, marketing the book. I have also been told that book reviews are gold to writers. Hence the Giveaways and the pleading or requests for reviews on Goodreads and Amazon etc.
I have given away 15 books, in the hope reviews will result. But I am curious as to how other children’s writers find book reviews. So any help, or advice will definitely be appreciated by me.
Blogging delights me and writing is a passion. I consider myself lucky if one or two people read a post and am amazed if the stats alert me that a post is doing well and 15 + readers have been on my site.
Life is funny isn’t it, some of us dream of winning the lottery but bloggers simply dream of being acknowledged and read.
