The book and I were on TV on March 15. Here is a clip of the video. It provides a nice synopsis of the story and some video of the bookstore where I will be reading on May 2. Enjoy!
I am not a marketer by nature. I tried in my 20s to sell items to people: roofing materials, cosmetics, and photography packages, to name a few. It just never worked out because I loathe asking people to buy things, and if someone says “no,” I believe them.
And I think that is why book sales have been going so well.
Yes, you read that right. I am so much more interested in building a relationship with others than I am in selling them a book. Of course, I want people to read what I write. I want to share my story, but not at the expense of getting to know someone.
I have been running ads on Facebook here and there just to get the word out, and I have found that the women who contact me have such startlingly beautiful and tragic stories to tell that I get caught up in them. That to me is the power and purpose of writing.
