This is a post about my book. I am told that the only way to get sales is to keep showing up. So this post will regularly find its way onto Facebook. I need to grow my FB numbers, and hopefully as a result - sales. I have been coached to get better at describing my book. AND to include the good things that people are saying about it. So this is my attempt at that “marketing” sort of activity. Here goes.
There IS a reason for you to buy this book. You love animals, especially dogs and cats. Right? This book is about homeless dogs and cats, living a nightmare, breeding uncontrollably - NOT pleasant to ponder. But wait. This book will make you feel good about what’s happening for some of the homeless creatures in one little corner of the world. daily dose of dogs (aka cats with your coffee) is the true account of my ongoing battle to make a difference in the lives of the homeless creatures I encounter. My hope is that this book will entertain you, bring a tear and a smile, maybe even have you believing that we CAN make a difference for animals.
There is another reason for you to buy this book. I am a private animal rescuer. The costs of private rescue come right out of the pocket of the rescuer. I am always looking for ways to support this work. If I sell books, that income helps me to continue the work and still pay the bills. And might I add that my *BIG dream would be to sell so many books that not only could I continue the work but even expand it. Therefore, sales will ultimately help me help more.
The following are some quotes from reviews the book has received on Amazon. THANK YOU reviewers. You give me hope.
while reading it you will feel as if you have made a new group of friends... Well worth reading, I highly recommend this one!
This is a wonderful book about the rescue work of Chrystal Parker. It chronicles the day-to-day ups and downs of rescue.
I am looking forward to ordering more copies as gifts later in the year. I had to be sure it was a good book first - it is.
If you love animals and true stories about life, DON'T MISS THIS BOOK!!!! It is one you just don't want to put down.
a way of writing that just draws you in, makes you feel like you're right there beside her on some desolate back road trying to coax some starving injured frightened animal to come into her world. It really is THE book to read!
one of the best books I have ever read
From the minute you pick it up you are enthralled with her story
There are very few books which I would recommend so highly.
It feels boastful to copy & paste these pieces of reviews to a post I am writing about my own book. But I am told this is how to “market”. And since I have zero dollars with which to hire those services, I will have to become comfortable with this part of the job.
You can order the book from the publisher by clicking the link in my sidebar. It is also available through *Amazon and *Barnes & Noble.
Keep your fingers crossed for sales. There’s still SO MUCH I’d love to do. . .
