The story thus far

josephMy intention with this blog was to share the adventure as a first time self-published author.

Not ever having blogged before I think I made the most basic beginners mistake. Made a couple of postings and then stopped. Well, it is time to start again.

I am writing from and working out of Phnom Penh, Cambodia for a couple of months and am interested is seeing how this all works out. Have created a facebook page and have 12 likes so far. Pretty unimpressive, no!! As I understand it one needs 25 likes or friends to get to use a custom url – i guess i am almost half way there. So, my hope is that more folks will like my story.

So, the story thus far is that I had a great start in my home province, British Columbia, lots of interest, found a distributor – Sandhill Book Marketing and am now in a lot of bookstores – both bricks and mortar and online resellers.

Have a  number of positive reviews and that’s all pretty cool.

The Buy One – Donate One program is getting some traction. Unfortunately, there has been a teacher’s strike in BC and that was my main market focus and so things have slowed down a fair bit. Strike is still on and the school year is about done so I will re-vist that in the new school year next September.

What I am going to try next is to use social media to promote the Buy One – Donate One program and see how it goes. I am going to share the journey on a regular basis and see what happens.

Thank you for following.
