Has I had stated in my last post I did speak at a children's literature at the College of Staten Island. I couldn't believe I had absolutely no real traffic problems going there or coming back home, especially since there's always something to slow things down on a regular basis,
The class there seemed to be quite interested in my writing experience, and how I came to write my book, A Lesson My Cat Taught Me. I also spoke about the publishing process both traditional and self-published, and the marketing/promoting which comes afterwards. Their interests were shown my the kinds of questions they'd asked. I only sold one copy, which wasn't bad considering everyone there was a college student. Right now I'm waiting to hear from the class professor to whom I gave a copy of my book concerning her opinion of it; and hopefully I can get some word of mouth out of it.
As far as the fee I charged is concerned, I followed the advice I heard in the various groups I belong to on Linked In.
As far as my writing is concerned, I haven't really done any...why I need to know I've got an audience of my writing to begin to publish the two early reader children's books I've already complete. It is because of this I'm taking my time and I'm sloooowly writing my fourth book for this genre, and a second regarding a cat.
One of the venues I have to try is an almost impossible one, and that is trying to get on national television...well it's a dream and I can still dream can't I
