Hardest Part of Writing: MARKETING

As a good southern girl, I find it hard to promote myself. Mama always taught never brag and don’t be a ham. But, in today’s book world, authors have to market their own books. With that in mind, I gathered courage and dropped by two local shops–Terra Studios and Pearl’s Books– to ask they carry my three books.

If You Walk Long Enough, a novel set against the coming home from Vietnam, If the Creek Don’t Rise, a bunch of southern gothic tales, and Washed in the Water, a collection of short stories, got the nod of approval from both shops. These books make fine house gifts, personal reading suggestions, or holiday treasures for friends and family.

Terra Studios sells pottery and handcrafted items that make for whimsical gift shopping and picnicking with elves and little folks. Pearl’s Book Store, newly opened, provides the best in a locally owned bookstore and a rich assortment of reading choices. Besides, it’s named after the owner’s dog. How can you go wrong!?

Next up, meet the StoryMaker in the Eureka Springs Community Center (AR) December 4, 10:00-2:00. StoryMaker benefits the scholarship fund for the Dairy Hollow Writers’ Colony.
Holiday gift giving and the best in shopping.

For those unable to shop locally, each of these books is available at local libraries, from the publisher Pen-L Publishing, and on Amazon.
