I’m no marketer. Hell I don’t even like going to the grocery market, so trying to “sell” my book is a nightmare for me.
But I am great at leaving things places. I’ve left my phone at a friends, my wallet in the car, my kids stuck at school, and my husband wondering what’s for dinner. So leaving stuff I can do–
Which is why I’m starting something I’m calling “Where in the world is ‘pink tips’?” or “Where’s ‘pink tips?’” for short. You can join me, too–in fact you ARE the marketing–and here’s all you have to do:
get your copy of ‘pink tips’ and bring it someplace. It could be your fave coffee joint, the book store, the market (wink wink), or if you live near a place that has cool stuff–statues, a good view, a museum–or you’re at an event (rock concerts or sports fans, unite!) snap a photo of yourself or just the book and send it to me. I’ll post it here.
The second part of my “big selling strategy” is that I actually leave my book where I am. I don’t expect you to do that or you’ll run out of cash buying more books–
but I can. I’m the author for heaven’s sake, it’s the least I can do. Spread the love around as my sister says, pay it forward, get the message out there. Any way you can.
So here’s the first in what I hope is a long series of “Where’s ‘pink tips’ photos: can you find the pink dot that is my book, and guess the location? Hint: this location is a state in the United States where 55% of the women who are diagnosed with breast cancer are under the age of 65.
