That Time When Dr. Seuss was Your English Teacher

Another year, another set of teachers.  That’s what happens at Vita Post Mortem Academy, a school run by famous dead people. Having special abilities, like being able to see spirits, means extra responsibilities. Jules Winklevoss, the protagonist in my fifth book, The Curse of the Winklevoss Twins, learns that firsthand when she returns for another adventure at the prized academy.

Check out the line up of teachers she has for her sophomore year:

Science: Marie Curie
Math: Charles Ponzi
English: Dr. Seuss
Social Studies: Princess Diana
Psychology: Steve Jobs

Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon: Applied to Book Marketing

I’m a math nerd.  I love spreadsheets and use them in all aspects of my life.  I have pie charts for seating arrangements and linked macros for house renovations. You name it, I have a spreadsheet.  So I was wondering how I could incorporate math into book marketing.  Check out this video to see my tongue in cheek attempt:

Holding a Physical Book in Your Hand

There’s something about holding a physical book in your hands.  People love it.  The pages smell like paper and ink.  It makes the writing more real.  Therefore, I decided to hand out physical copies of my first book in the (after)life lessons series.  Rather than a link or a post that you can swipe past, handing out the book started a real conversation and ignited interest.  

I brought my books to my jazz dance class.  We took a picture with the books.  I posted it and tagged them on Facebook, hoping their friends might see it and vote for the book, too!

I would recommend this book marketing plan!

#Dancing for #Book Votes!

Sharing is caring!  That’s why I shared my books with my dance friends.

In an effort to expand my social network reach, I created this video and posted it on all my social media sites with various overlapping book and dance hashtags.

My book, The Curse of the Winklevoss Twins, is “Hot & Trending” on Kindle Scout right now and for the past week.  I’m hoping to keep that momentum going!  22 more days!

What is Kindle Scout? And How do I Vote?

As I request friends and followers to vote for my book on Kindle Scout, I’ve had lots of people ask me, what is Kindle Scout?

Here’s your answer.

Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. I posted my book on this site before its available for purchase. Based on the short description, first four chapters, and cover, readers can vote for my book to be published by Kindle Press!

Here’s how to vote.

Once you are on the page: https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/24VKXYPLERGLP

Select the nominate option.  It will direct you to log into your Amazon account to complete the nomination.  That’s it!  You will have voted for my book!

The Making of Sweet and Sour Meatballs

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!
