Will I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends?

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr aren’t my friends, yet. But you are. Tomorrow is a big day in my life. I’ve realized the dream of every writer by getting signed by a publisher, Amber Cove Publishing. Tomorrow is the day my book comes out from the publisher. I’d really like it to go well.

Most people don’t realize that there are probably only a handful of authors on the planet whose books get advertised or get a display in a real bookstore. My publisher is not a big publisher and doesn’t have an advertising budget. My job doesn’t end once I’ve written my book.

Now the real job starts, I have to promote my book! I also don’t have an advertising budget. That’s where you come in, if you are so inclined to be kind. Tomorrow, when my book is in the Amazon Kindle store, I’ll put a post on my blog including the synopsis and the link to Amazon. If you’ve ever laughed or chuckled at my blog even once, would you mind either re-blogging that post tomorrow or sharing it to Facebook?  If I could, I’d come over and cut your lawn to repay you, but since that’s not possible, you will forever have my gratitude.

If you buy it and read it, I’m doubly grateful to you for taking a chance and spending some of your hard earned money to buy my book and using your valuable time to read it. Don’t worry, my blog isn’t going to turn into a constant ad for my book. I’ll keep churning out humorous blog posts.

Thank you ~Phil
