Today, I thought I'd share with you an experience I had the last couple of days on Facebook. My sweet sister (and I mean that truthfully) posted the following note on my timeline:
"Truly can't wait to see everyone's response...I think it will be interesting to see how we are all connected. Since life is not only made of photos, I'm going to get into the game called "a reunion of friends." The idea is to see who reads a post without a picture. So, if you are reading this message, make a comment using a single word about how we met. After that, copy this message on your wall and I will also leave you a word. Please, don't leave a word and then not bother to copy the text. You'll ruin the fun."
So, as instructed, I copied and pasted her note on my Facebook timeline just to see what would happen. I didn't expect much. I mean, after all, who wants to admit they know a poor author? What transpired after that was truly amazing. I heard from true friends and relatives I haven't heard from in years. I had no idea they were following me. Go ahead to my Facebook page and see what happened. Go ahead and post something more there if you wish. I'd love to hear from you even if we've never met in person. I even made contact, somehow, with the John Swett High School Library (where I went to school, see photo). I found friends I hadn't heard from since high school.
I just hope that will translate into sales.
Go ahead and start your own chain. Follow the instructions my sister sent me. It's fun, and I got a lot of free publicity for BRIDGETOWN HIGH, he he he.
Okay. So, until next week, as always, if you like this blog/message, please remember to "Share" and "Like"it on Facebook , and "Tweet" or "Retweet" it on Twitter. Then PLEASE, take five minutes to write a review and post it on Amazon. I need all the reviews I can get to make this book a success. Also have you signed up for my email letters on my Blog Site? I would love to see you there and have you introduce yourself and give comments, good or bad, to this blog. And also keep in mind "BRIDGETOWN HIGH" is still available on Amazon, Goodreads and Barnes&Noble and several other places I can't remember. You can read some GREAT reviews of BRIDGETOWN HIGH on Amazon and Goodreads in case you need more info about my novel. Almost everyone who has read it, loved it.
