All authors will tell you how difficult it is to be a first-time author, especially in drawing attention to your work! In recent weeks I have had four book signings, five TV interviews, one radio interview, and one national podcast on ‘blogtalkradio’ with a speaking engagement coming on Saturday. But the best way to get the word out is word of mouth!
I plan on taking a break for a while after Fathers’ Day, but I will continue to look for ways to get my book into the hands of the right people--because giving a child a good start in life will change their entire life for the better!
I now have a new dream. In it, I casually walk into a fast food establishment or library, and in the corner I see a man, young or older, reading a copy of my book. That would mean someone knows about The Power of Dadhood, and they care about being a better father. I can see it in my head. Someday I will see it with my eyes!
For this last post prior to Fathers’ Day, I am including a link to my interview on the “Families Matter” program on the “World of Ink” network. After some introductions, I come on board at about 2:50. It is an hour long, or a long hour, but could be of help to someone you know, whether it be a mother or father.
Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there, and thank you to the moms that, too often, have to parent without a father's help.
