OBLIQUE STYLE MARKETING FOR THE EIGHT-FINGERED CRIMINAL'S SON
360 copies of my book The Eight-Fingered Criminal's Son have been sold since October of 2011. We're not exactly talking New York Times best seller, but I wasn't sure I'd sell 100 books.
I've tried various goofball marketing ploys, posting quirky promotional videos on You Tube, doing book signings at Chandler Auto and Tire and Papa Joe's Barber Shop, and most recently the flash read campaign with Dickey "Tom Jones" Imburgia. And my oblique marketing campaign and over yet.
A spectacular flash read with Dickey "Tom Jones" Imburgia is scheduled for October 2 at Papa Joe's grand opening of his new new barber shop in Chandler, Arizona and a Cheese Whiz event scheduled for October 6 at The Book Frog in Rolling Hills, California. We're planning a flash read in the produce section of a Chandler, Arizona grocery store.
My new novel The Spirit Guide Bar will be available in 2013.
You can pick up a copy of the THE EIGHT-FINGERED CRIMINAL'S SON at the following locations:
The Book Frog, Rolling Hills, California
Chandler Auto and Tire, Chandler, Arizona
Changing Hands Book Store, Tempe, Arizona
American Import Auto Repair, Gilbert, Arizona
Zia Records, 8 locations in Nevada and Arizona
