My book, Flip Flap Try . . . A Cardinal’s Journey, recently reached a milestone. The 300th copy has recently sold! I feel it is a testament of how well received the story of Rainier’s journey is. It turns out, the little cardinal that my husband and I experienced while camping, has inspired a story enjoyed by many people. My friend, Linda, who I hadn’t seen in a long time, bought the 300th copy of the hard cover book. She also bought the first soft cover book. Thank you, Linda!
I am somewhat of a quiet person, so have had to stretch myself out of my comfort zone many times in order to sell my book. I recall the day I sold a copy of my book to someone I did not know. It was during a Ladies Night Out event in Lebanon, Ohio. It meant a lot to me to be able to do so. I also recall selling one book during an event in a rain storm. Success! I might not have sold any that day, but I was determined to try anyway. One bit of good advice I’ve heard about selling is: let the product sell itself. I try to follow that suggestion.
My sincere thanks to all who have bought, read, helped promote, had a hand in the creation of, or have a copy of Flip Flap Try . . . A Cardinal’s Journey on your coffee table or shop shelf. Each one of you has shared in reaching this milestone. Sing, play and be happy!
