Welcome to day five of Children’s Book week Celebration

 Free Book Promotion

 Your book is published, what do you do next? You have many options. One option is to promote your book with an online book tour company or you can start building an online presence by writing articles. Even though I have done an online book tour, but for me writing articles has proven to be the most lucrative way to promote my books. My goal is to set myself as an expert in the field of foreign languages. Writing articles relating to foreign language acquisition afforded me the opportunity to brand myself as an expert.

 Read  two articles I wrote Here and Here
 Potential customers will most likely buy my books because they trust me.

Since making a concerted effort with article writing, my book sales for my first book Marie and Her Friend the Sea Turtle has gone up. On average, I sell 10 books a month. Book sales are great, but what is more important is to have my target audience read and appreciate the message in my book. I get great satisfaction knowing that children that read my books have an opportunity to be exposed to French and Spanish.

Perhaps, reading my trilingual books will spark interest in helping the child decide to take foreign language study more seriously. Every book is unique and I believe a child can learn many valuable lessons from reading a variety of books. In celebration of children’s book week, I encourage you to take a few moments to ponder upon what you can do to get your book into the hands of many children as possible. You never know how your book may change a child’s life forever.

  2. Great stuff. I like reading how others promote their books. Learning as much as you can about a subject then sharing it is brilliant. Love it!
