One of the hats I wear as the caregiver support for Lynn is to help him promote his book. As I have mentioned before, when he no longer was able to work, he began to write. His first book, “Rising Tide,” was published a couple of years ago. Those who are not in the publishing industry assume that the publisher promotes the book. Not so these days as the only books that are advertised or extensively promoted are those from already known authors. Therefore, Lynn spends a great deal of his day contacting book clubs who might be interested in reading his book and offering them a free promotional copy. He also writes a blog about writing and interacts with book sellers.
One of his contacts who writes a blog about authors is featuring him and his book this week. Check it out! This is a link, www.kaitlinmichelle.com, to a feature article which includes a short interview with him as well as an except from the book, the official trailer, and a short bio about Lynn. Due to the limitations he has from MS, Lynn is limited in marketing his book to the use of social media. He is trying to start a grassroots movement to promote his book, “Rising Tide.” I hope you will check out the article and pass it on to others who enjoy reading.
