Small Business Saturday Great Way to Promote, Sell Books

So, OK.  I'm helping writing friend and publisher Diane Wolf do some book promotion for her Dancing Lemur Press. But here's the thing. I was once a retailer. Yes I was. For nearly 30 years and that experience helps me help my clients to know how to approach retailers in ways that convince them it is worthwhile to host authors as part of their own marketing. I address that in the flagship book of my HowToDoItFrugally Series of books, The Frugal Book Promoter.  I also recommend a book I wrote for my fellow retailers, because the more authors and publishers know about retailing, the easier it is for them to see what they need and that in turn helps them offer retailers benefits they will find darn hard to resist.  Besides, authors must learn that they, too, are retailers. Books are their product and readers are their end consumers! We're all in this together!  So, here is the promotion that Diane used--one that captured the part of my heart that is a retailer!
