I hope you all have been having a great summer. It’s hard to believe we are in the middle of August already! This summer has been full of book-related events, including a great meet-and-greet at The Book Bin in Northbrook in June and a book reading as a part of Local Author’s Night at the Book Cellar in July.
I also had fun selling books at Printers Row Lit Fest and have loved all the posts from around the US and the globe of The Cube coming along with you on summer vacations and outings. Keep the photos coming!
If you don't believe that social media posts work, here’s some proof. I spotted this review on Amazon the other day and it’s all thanks to you! Even if you’ve posted already, posting again can and will make a difference. So please keep it up, and thank you!
I was also able to make my first donation to The Night Ministry this summer too. For every review I receive on Amazon and/or Goodreads, $1 goes to them. Every time I hit 20 reviews, I send them a check. I was thrilled to be able to contribute to their cause last month, so please keep the reviews coming too.
For my final big event of the summer, I will be on the radio this Sunday, August 19. From 1-2pm I will be on the show “Playtime with Bill Turck & Kerri Kendall” - Chicago’s only radio show dedicated solely to the arts. I met Bill at The Book Cellar event and I can’t wait to chat with him and Kerri more about The Cube and the arts in general. You can learn more about their radio show on their website and you should be able to listen live on the 1590 WCGO website if you don’t get that station where you live. It will be my first time on the radio so wish me luck!
There are other exciting book-related projects in the works, both on The Cube and on other books I’m working on, so please stay tuned. Thank you all for helping me spread the word. In the name of ruthless self-promotion, here are some closing reminders…
I think that’s all for now. I can’t believe it’s been less than five months since The Cube was released. It’s been a roller coaster, and I’m glad each of you is along for the ride.
