Baseball Summer update

I now have 5 storefront outlets for my book in two different communities. Only 1 is a bookstore - others are the local museum, Chamber of Commerce office, florist/gift shop and art store. They were all very receptive to my book. The recent positive coverage in the area media (1 TV news program, 1 cable TV show, 2 radio interviews, 5 stories in 3 different newspapers including a daily paper in a larger community) has been great. I plan to increase and widen the availability of my book - pretty sure it will be relatively easy to do with the high profile my book has achieved. Many people seem to be intrigued by the story. I also think that it will have a relatively long shelf life locally. I guess I'll find out.

My marketing strategy was non-existent before the book was printed - but things are going pretty good.

Got a big boost today. One of my outlets called to say they had a single order for 10 copies of my book - & would I please come over to personalize a message in several of the copies, as well as replenish their stock. Another store said they would feature my book in their next print ad.
