Sending a copy of my book to established authors

Hi all, It's me, Sean Toh from Singapore.

Last week, I had this idea of sending my books to some established authors. I told myself that I had nothing to lose but the printing cost of the book and the postage cost needed to send the book to the destination address. Hence, I started writing a few thank you notes and send my books to my targeted authors.

Within the next few day, I recieved a few thank you letters and notes from some of them. This idea from John Kremer's book is a good one because I used it right away as a marketing tool to show ordinary people that even established writers have given my book a support.

I just want to conclude that this idea actually come from John Kremer's "1001 ways to market your books", which I just took it to apply it for my marketing campaign. Writing and publishing is the only beginning of book selling, marketing your book really need ideas and creativity. I have to try all kinds of strategies and just do it. Don't be too afraid of rejection! We all have nothing to lose but lots to gain!

Yours Sincerely

Sean Toh

I just send a copy of my book with a thank you card written personally to the established authors saying that I'm really inspired by their personal story and experience. I didn't expect anything, just a marketing campaign to bring awareness to authors that my book is launched. I believe the author who send me her autograph book and card was touched by the story in the book or would like to take this opportunity to know me and maybe we could collaborate together in a new book in the future.

An interesting idea. How many copies did you send out and what kind of note did you send? You mentioned thank you notes? Thank you for what? I write fiction and receive Jodi Picault's email Newsletter. You think a well known author would have the interest and time to read my The Return?

Great information Sean! Thanks for sharing. I am reading (relishing) 1001 Ways to Market Your [my] Books by John Kremer. It is less than a week old, and high-lighted to high-heaven ;-) Good luck, and thanks again for sharing this valuable advice.
