Book Update

Over the past two weeks I've had the pleasure of hearing from readers of 'I See Red.' As a first time published author, it's both incredibly exciting and somewhat terrifying to release work out into the wild. I am so happy to say that so far my experience has been overwhelmingly positive! I started with a handful of reviews on Amazon, and I'm super excited that the list is growing. People are reading the book and connecting with the characters - what more could an author want? 

I always knew that marketing would be the most difficult part of this process - yes, marketing has been harder than actually writing the book. How does a first timer get their book into the hands of the influencers? I'm still not sure. The theme of 'I See Red' is that big things grow from small seeds, and I find this to be a fitting reminder during the marketing process. Word of mouth is a powerful tool, and I am so grateful that so many people have liked, shared, and promoted 'I See Red' on Facebook and Instagram. I know that as time goes on, and I have more work to offer, this process will become easier. 

In the meantime, do you know anyone who might like this book? Are you part of a book club, looking for some fresh fiction? Do you go to a parents group? Do you know someone who teaches, raises, or advocates for children with difficulties? Do you know a leader in the education, parenting, or behavior field who might like to read about a little boy with a big story? If so, please let them know my book exists. Have you read the book already? Add a review to Amazon, please! 

I so appreciate your ongoing support. It shows me every day that ordinary people can do big things, like spending a year writing a book, when they're connected through the encouragement of others.
