Over the years, friends have asked about the secret ingredient in my mom’s famous chocolate chip cookies. Many have tried to recreate her delicious treats, but few have mastered the art.
This past weekend, my mother and I baked her cookies together, and I discovered her secret ingredient….love. My mother pours her selfless heart into each cookie, just like she does with everything and everyone in her life.
My mother is caring, thoughtful, giving, wonderful, fun, joyous, loving, and entertaining. I love her so much. Happy birthday!!
In an attempt to reach a broader audience, I am creating content unrelated to my Kindle Scout Campaign. Tonight, I created a cooking video sponsored by my book, The Curse of the Winklevoss Twins. I hope you enjoy it, share it, and vote for my book!
While surfing the Kindle Scout Forums, I recently read a story about one lucky author’s successful Kindle Scout campaign. She insisted she was the epitome of an indie author, building her grassroots author platform from concept to completion. So how did she manage to gain enough votes to win Kindle Press publishing?
The answer was two words: PIG MARKETING.
I was at a loss for what this meant, but she explained how she leveraged her personal network. She was a member of a Facebook group for pig owners. One picture of Miss Piggy posing with her book was enough to touch the hearts of the group members. Lo and behold, 20,000 fellow pig owners voted for her first novel on Kindle Scout.
I don’t have a pet pig, but for my second Kindle Scout campaign, I will attempt to leverage my personal network. Any advice or suggestions?
