10 Ways To Defeat Obscurity

I don't expect either of my self-published books to become "best sellers." Sure, it would be nice, but expecting it would not be realistic. However, I would love for either of them to rise up from the typical self-published obscurity! Inspired by former Kodak CMO Jeff Hayzlett's 12+ Things You Can Do to Make "The Mirror Test" a Best Seller, the following is a list of 10 Things You Can Do to Raise Two Boys, Two Planets From Obscurity!

Barnes & Noble Now Carrying Two Boys, Two Planets

I noticed today that Barnes & Noble is finally offering my recently-published children's book, Two Boys, Two Planets, on their Web site. So if you prefer Barnes & Noble for your book shopping, please take a look! If you buy it (or even read a copy owned by somebody else), please consider posting a review. I've been surprised at how difficult it has been to get reviews for this book, as I thought it would be easier than getting reviews of my novel (Lesson One: Revolution! — also available via Barnes & Noble). After all, it only takes a few minutes to read Two Boys, Two Planets if you're reading at a casual pace, whereas it will take much longer to read the novel even if you're reading quickly.

Donation Offer to Benefit Local School

Yes, it's time for another donation offer! :) Back in November, I offered that for every copy sold of Lesson One: Revolution! I would donate $1 to the Office of Letters and Light (the non-profit organization that runs NaNoWriMo and Script Frenzy). This time, the focus is on my newly-published children's book, Two Boys, Two Planets. Deadline extended! For every copy sold through January 31, 2011, I will donate $1 to a local elementary school.

New Book Released!

This weekend, I was happy to announce the release of a new book! This time it is a children's book, Two Boys, Two Planets. It is meant for beginning readers, and an online scoring tool calculatd the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level at below 1. If you're a parent (or teacher) of an early reader, please take a look at this new book! Right now it is a bit limited in availability, but in a few days it should be available via Amazon.com, and a few weeks from now it should be available at most major book retailers.

Special Donation Offer - November Only

For every copy of Lesson One: Revolution! sold during November (2010), as a paperback or for the Kindle, I will donate $1.00 to The Office of Letters and Light.
