Marketing: Exposure

After I compiled my list of state reading lists and awards that my book, America’s Black Founders, could qualify for, I looked over that list.

For some state reading lists, all you have to do is e-mail them the name of a book you’d like to nominate.

So I did! And of course, I nominated mine!

For other lists, someone who was a teacher or librarian had to contact them and nominate my book. So I contacted my teacher and librarians friends and they were happy to send in the nomination.

For other lists, anyone could nominate the book, so I contacted a writer friend who also had a new book coming out and we swapped. I submitted her book for nomination and she submitted mine.

Networking is so important in this industry! This is just one example of what you can do to help market your book when you network with friends and fellow writers.
