Project “Letters Never Meant to be Read” Hangover and Marketing Woes

I am truly proud of this project Letters Never Meant to be Read and I thank all of the letter writers for putting themselves out there to get it done. Kindle Version (still not married up yet on Amazon). I started all of this three years ago by writing a letter to someone who I felt did me wrong. What started as some kind of creative therapy turned into a full blown book with other great writers. I plan to do this twice a year until I die, and I often do what I say I will do, I am dangerous that way.
Someone, someday will take great notice at these efforts and WE will be able to point at the first volume with extreme happiness. Please, write some yourself and encourage others to write letters and send them in. The next batch are due May 1st, I dare you…
Marketing Woes: Any book has one problem to answer, who will buy it? The more we sell, the higher our rank, the more chance we have of showing up randomly in front of strangers’ faces and being recommended by Amazon which is what we need to have a chance at this project going viral. That is the name of the game in a nutshell. We need some initial momentum to garner more interest.
I remain unconvinced that there is one way, a silver bullet to market a book. If you have one, I will swallow that pill right in front of your face. I have been approached by many who want to sell packages in all price ranges who use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, everything.
Please use whatever social media platforms you already use and get the word out. I am proud of this work because it is my baby, of course I want it to grow wings. Besides that though, it is a fun read, a glance at the life and time of the letter writer and very juicy.
