It's hard to believe that I was interviewed for a newspaper article last summer after launching the book publication. And though this is quite the leap from the story I have been telling about the process of writing, illustrating, and self-publishing this book, it speaks to a very important aspect to a book's financial success: advertising/marketing. You'll hear me speak A LOT about this aspect of the game in later posts, but for now, a preview of my marketing campaign.
This was a truly humbling moment for me. Sure, it wasn't New York Times or Washington Post, but it gave me goosebumps nonetheless. Ms Germanos, the writer of this piece, interviewed me for no more than 10 minutes on the phone, and really got how this book's message was really important to me. I want her to know how much I appreciate her skill as a journalist, so, if Ms Germanos is following Centipede Dragon at all, thanks so very much.
