Flying Family Folktales

The most blustery months of the year occur in early spring. March and April are rife with wind-blown possibilities, especially because these sun gladdened, blossom-filled months lure everyone outdoors.

We all know that this is kite season, complete with large spools of thread and dazzling colored kites swirling in the sky overhead.

Just last night while walking my dog in the neighborhood park, I saw a kite stuck in the branches of a mulberry tree and was reminded of how when my nephew… Continue

Thanks for the message, Karen.
We have been away. As we had to travel to a rather sad funeral (sad in the sense because she was so much younger than us - the age of our sons' generation) we stayed on in Derbyshire for a 10 day caravan break. It gave me time to think about what I am doing and what really matters in life. publishing and marketing came low on the list! Writing? At this moment in time I am wondering why I do it. Life is for living not sitting in front of a computer!

Best regards

Impressive awards, qualifications and experience, Karen. And oh, what beautiful hair! I sure could do with a little of it to stick on top of my head. (Now that has given me an idea for a short story)

Yes, providing booksellers buy my book from the distributor. I plan on doing some school and bookstore visits, which should help locally. I've wanted to go to some book festivals w/in my area, but at this point, with my husband's work being slow, that is not a possibility.

Sounds like it has worked very well for you. What about book sales?
At 12:58pm on April 6, 2009, Katie Hines said…
Thanks, Karen. I'll check her out.

Thanks, Karen. I've never heard of and hadn't considered hiring an online pr person. Was it very expensive? What sort of results have you seen from working on the marketing/promo on your own as opposed to using someone?
