I got my first shipment today...

and I must say, i was speechless - impressive. Between seeing our artwork first hand, to reading the actual book, i am on cloud nine. Thank you CreateSpace and Amazon.

 

I've been busy in other ways too - i created a trailer yesterday. http://youtu.be/VlEHac4KDeo Please check it out and share, like, comment.

 

I have no idea where all my marketting ideas are coming from as i've done little research but its working. My story hit the news in Edmonton yesterday:

http://metronews.ca/news/edmonton/110231/manitoba-writer-uses-social-media-to-find-birth-mom/, and locally in Winnipeg too. I was page 2 in edmonton - would have been front page if Dick Clark hadnt died.

 

So ya, I think I did a good thing by getting my book published - however the insecure, frightened side is going "ARE YOU NUTS?"

 

anyways, i could use a few calming words

Re: I got my first shipment today...

Isn't it amazing how some celebs have absolutely no consideration! Imagine dying just to keep you off the front page! What some people won't do to grab the attention...

Congrats!  It's an amazing feeling, isn't it?  The jitters will go away once you realize how awesome it is that people are reading your work and caring about what you have to say.  Good luck!

Re: I got my first shipment today...

Hi Emerald, I watched your trailer. Really makes you want to watch the book. Is there a tool on CretaeSpace to make trailers? All the best with the book.

Hi Marriane,

 

I watched your book trailer a while ago and I was really inspired by it. I want to say thanks for the inspiration again, because of you I've created one myself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyhH2TWQyJA

 

Thanks.

 

Regards,

Anthony
