I wrote a book and everyone that reads is positively moved. I speak in places and the crowds go wild and it seems everyone wants to hug me? I am retired and I just have to work on getting my story out. The publisher, publishes and is mainly concerned on marketing themselves an not really concerned on individual Author. I was called up last week by a PR company who arranged and I did 15 radio interviews. The rating on Google went up a little, but I never sold enough books to cover the cost. They state a 3 month media blitz and another 15 interviews as I have a truly amazing story that needs to be shared. They stated $6500 is all it will cost. I am retired on a fixed income, I don't have that kind of money to throw around and I don't believe that the campaign will come close to what it will cost me.
I tried making a video, but I have so many critics that all they do is frustrate me and the video comes out like crap. Then even trying to down load it to a disk or u-tube? I am not that computer savvy. So I don't know how exactly I get this story out there? The name of the book is "Walk with Me" by Mark Lynch. My web page is [url removed, login to view]
The publisher put this short stupid, (as far as I am concerned) video trailer on u tube and it has been there a few months with a whooping 16 hits?
I usually give out more books than I sell. I was at a barbeque last night and this lady came up to me. She said her name was Mary and I apologized for not remembering her. She told me that I gave her a signed copy of my book two years ago and so far over 30 people have read that book, it is a little worn and where I signed it it's a little blurry as she stated one of her freinds brought it to the beach to read. Everyone I meet that reads this book finds it fascinating and they can't understand why it is not on the New York best sellers list? But, neither can I and I know I am probably biased? So I don't know what exactly to do. I have an amazing story, you have to read it to believe it and unless your made out of pure stone I will guarantee I will touch many of your emotions. But ho do I get it noticed?
