I was under the impression that having a book released during the holidays would be a great promotional tool. I imagined it would be featured in gift guides and touted as a stocking stuffer and bookstores would be eager to have me signing books for holiday shoppers. As it turns out, I was wrong.
The deadline to submit products for gift guides passed long before galleys of The Green Year became available and bookstores are too frenzied to even think about hosting a signing during the holidays. After making dozens of phone calls, I resigned myself to the fact that I wouldn't be able to schedule any readings until the New Year. Unless (this is where the asking for help part comes in) YOU know of anyone who would like to host an event. I'm available to speak at bookstores, eco-friendly businesses, social and professional organizations and schools on topics like:
*25 Ways to Go Green for Under $100
*10 Minutes to a More Eco-Friendly Lifestyle
*Kids Can Go Green, Too!
*Going Green in the Garden
*Green Your Workplace
Drop me a note to talk about the specifics. Otherwise, stay tuned for a full list of events in 2009.
