I didn't believe it when I first learned that once a book is released, it is picked up by stores everywhere from the Ingram catalog. A few days ago, I decided to go into Barnes & Noble to check if the book would show in their catalog and was pleasantly surprised. I couldn't believe it. It's everywhere. Check it out here.
Now the real work begins. How do I market this thing? In the last month, I have been posting updates on my Facebook page. Since I announced the book release on January 30, I sold out of my initial inventory and had to rush another order to fulfill the latest orders. I am hoping to start receiving book reviews soon to start building more interest from new readers outside of my Facebook and LinkedIn circle.
A good friend of mine just recommended I check out GoodReads.com. They help with some marketing, so I signed up right away and have been researching the best options for this book. I hope to post an update with how this one goes.
