Marketing the Pandaimonion book


We authors agreed to aggressively market the Pandaimonion book - so I'm pitching in now.

1) Organizing a reading: I just booked a room in a restaurant and printed invitations I'll take along to school and work.

2) Press release: I just wrote up a press release. I then phoned the local newspaper and talked to one of the editors in the "culture" department. She was rather interested and said they'd probably write an article about it. When I mentioned the reading, she promised they'd announce it as well.

Phew! This is exciting work! emoticon

Re: Marketing the Pandaimonion book


Today I sold and signed my second copy, to an enthusiastic friend I hadn't met in years. He practically grabbed it off me, even though the copy I had in my backpack was slightly scuffed in places.

And then he proceeded to introduce me to his assistant who is planning a reading series in a place called the "media dome". That's a kind of multimedia setting doubling as planetarium. First meeting is next week.

I'm very, very happy. This is an excellent introduction into a local network of writers and publishers. Finally, I have a chance of reaching my local base!

Wooh! emoticon

I am actually green with envy... but you deserve it emoticon

If I buy a copy (to learn German emoticon ) how can I get it signed? emoticon

You should google JA Konrath and look under his "tips". I don't know if he has tips for reading but he has them for everything else.

Well done anyway.

Re: Marketing the Pandaimonion book


I'm back from the first reading I organized myself.

I'm hoarse, and my throat hurts (I've been fighting a cold for a while now), but I'm still happy. It was a good reading. There were less people than I had hoped for, but they listened attentively, they asked good questions afterward - and most of them came and bought the book. And they wanted it signed.

It was very cool. emoticon

Thanks. emoticon

Yes, they liked the story and wanted to read more - so they bought the book on merit and not just because of me. That's the best part about it.
