You might think that when a book goes on sale, the author’s work is done. Not so. In fact, in many ways, the hard work is just beginning. With so many new books arriving in bookstores every day, writers have to actively promote their books to get them attention so that readers know about them.
The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail has been on sale for a week now. I don’t think I’ve ever been busier. But it’s a fun busy. In fact, as I write this post, I’m in South Dakota, attending The South Dakota Festival of Books. Today I did two school visits and I’ll be making more appearances and presentations here throughout the weekend.
Last week, my publisher Penguin Young Readers Group, threw a launch party for me in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was a fun evening with friends and family all there to help me celebrate the publication of my book.
I’ve been interviewed and guest blogging and appearing all over cyberspace. All to get a leg up. A boost, so that readers will hear about The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail.
I’ll be doing more interviews and profiles in the coming days so keep checking back for more information on where and when I’ll be appearing near you!
