write books and a chunk of them don’t get published—but many do. Of those that
get published, only a small percentage are marketed and promoted in a
substantial way. A lack of vision, knowledge, resources or courage impacts
which books are promoted and marketed well. I often wonder why people go
through the effort or expense to write and publish a book, only to let it die a
quiet death because there was little or no marketing to support it. If I can
impart this nugget of wisdom, it’s this: You should promote and market your
book, even if you have a publisher, even if you have to pay for it. Otherwise,
there’s a great chance your book will fail or under sell, leaving you with a
smaller brand, a tinier circle of influence in the world of ideas, and a greater
chance your next book won’t succeed—if it even gets published.
Today we see the launch of Find My Baby,
from Mitch Lavender.
So I hear you ask, who is this Mitch
Over the last few years I’ve read a number Mitch’s short stories in
various anthologies and work he has put together, and have always admired his
work, and now I can’t help but feel excited that he’s released his first novel.
I am a regular visitor to his blog Life in 64 Square Feet which is always entertaining,
interesting, and informative. And to be honest, I like his style, his writing
has always held an appeal for me, and I can’t wait to start reading Find My
and Lucy Foxborne have everything they want except a child. As they begin
navigating the legal and bureaucratic maze of international adoption from
Ukraine, they could not imagine their newly adopted child would be held for
ransom by a brilliant and demented hacker, bent on revenge and even darker
motives. Finding their baby could cost them everything.
Wow this sounds powerful, I want it, and
I want it now, you say!
Well lucky you, like I said earlier,
today July 1stis the
official launch day, and below are the links to where you can get it.
