Keeping your book alive

Nadine May does most of the marketing of our books here at Kima Global and I can tell you that she is endlessly creative about it and puts in a LOT of effort. I suppose that it is the way of Life that  only a few respond and appreciate her efforts, but it is still disheartening to get no response or get plain ignored (except by the “Super Troopers”, the four authors out of the close to forty authors that we represent).

One of the Super Troopers responded with some good advice, not to focus on all those that are not active, but rather “follow the light” by acknowledging and supporting those who are actually active. That’s what we are going to do from now on.

To use a metaphor, those who paddle their canoes on the river of life may get to the ocean where the sun always shines, while those who don’t end up sunk or beached or bogged down in a marsh.

If you don’t want to end up in any of these circumstances this is an opportunity to re-engage some level of support for your excellent book by making a commitment to regularly visit and post to our Author’s page.

What happens if you don’t respond? In some ways nothing because we won’t chastise or berate you; we will leave you alone. On the other hand your book will die a slow death, which is a big shame after all the effort you have taken to produce your masterpiece.

In the end Nadine May and I hope to see more of you on this page. As always, constructive comments are always welcome.
