There’s nothing unusual about the family living on Aberdeen Street. They’re just like every other family. They share meals and chores, watch television together, celebrate special occasions, and look after each other. They’re the kind of family Norman Rockwell would paint if he were still alive – and doing acid.
“Mom” is Chicago’s most famous female impersonator – Billy Blanchard, better known as Blanche D’Almond, belle of Café Muse. “Dad” is Sammy "The Pig" Gavone, a mid-level mobster, and their “son” is the banished child of religious fanatics. Who’s to say what makes a family?
But it’s not all white picket fences on Aberdeen Street. There's a greedy IRS flunky looking for a big score, an FBI agent with an axe to grind, a clingy male model with the prettiest feet in America, a meatpacking heir with a taste for S&M, a kinky trophy wife, and an unfortunate incident involving a vat of eucalyptus-scented wax. Then things get really complicated.
MARKETING YOUR BOOK
In order for any book to sell you have to let people know about it which often can be a daunting task. However, with just a few suggestions you can find your way to making money with your book by implementing a marketing plan.
- First, consider your audience. Who will buy your book? Hopefully you’ll find several categories of people. For example, parents, grandparents, special education teachers, and healthcare providers might be interested in a book on autism.
- Find out how many people fall into each category. (Example for autism: number of children with this diagnosis, number of parents, number of special education teachers, etc.). Use the statistics in your proposal and be specific. This may take time, but it’s worth the investment.
- Treat the proposal as a serious document. Don’t be cute; this is business.
- Examine your target audience and where they gather. Do they hold conventions? Do they belong to a national association? How about local and regional groups? Find out when and where the next big convention is held and how you could present a workshop and/or sell your book at a booth.
- What newspapers and magazines cater to your audience? Could you write articles for these periodicals based on information in your book? Would they print an excerpt from your book? List each magazine and newspaper.
- Of course you’ll need a web site – every published author should have a web site. But how will your web site market the book? Photos of your family and pets won’t do the trick. You need to use sales tools on the web site, and that includes giving something away. Look into Internet marketing.
- Can you line up personal appearances on regional radio and TV shows, plus newspaper interviews? List each potential venue.
