Audio/Video Promotion or Who Says Poets Can't Promote

It is common knowledge that it is more difficult for writers of fiction and poetry to promote their work. It can be done, however. This post is sort of a holiday gift to poets. That is, I am sending you samples of what my poetry writing partner did with audios and a video to help us promote our Blooming Red: Christmas Poetry for the Rational (www.budurl.com/BloomingRed). I've also given you some links to my Web site to show you how I used the links and the html code for the video on my Web site.  I'm going right now to see if I can figure out how to install the video on Amazon.


Here are two audios of Maggie reading some poems from her section of our Blooming Red chapbook. She has amazing British/Aussie diction.

I installed these links on my Shopping Plaza (www.howtodoitfrugally.com/shopping_plaza.htm) and other pages on my Web site like www.howtodoitfrugally.com/poetry_books.htm and www.howtodoitfrugally.com/more_on_blooming_red.htm

Please enjoy Maggie reading one of her poems from our newest chapbook Blooming Red on my Web site. You can see how I used her video: (www.howtodoitfrugally.com/more_on_blooming_red.htm ). Be sure to scroll down to the poetry sample section on this page.
