    Next up: I open a vein

    I think I must have been absent from class the day they handed out The Never-Miss Secret to Selling Your Books.

    "Why on Earth do you say that?" the gentleman in the back with the beige Panama hat asks.

    My reply is bleak. "Because, sir, absolutely nothing I've tried works."

    "Not true," he returns with a smile, his blue eyes crinkled up in fine humor. "Have you tried lighting yourself on fire? Nothing draws a crowd like a cheery blaze."

    "Yes," I nod, "but do any of those pyromaniacs like to READ?"

    Oh well, here's my latest, if you're so inclined (see? I told you I don't know how to sell books).

    A small press in Colorado. They do mainly true crime, along with some fiction (including this one). Thanks!

    Plenty of new writers don't get four and five star reviews. Hang in there.

    Hang in there. When you are with a small press, you do have to do more of the promo work. How about a book tour this summer through every town where you have friends-with-a-couch-to-sleep-on. Once you book the signings at small book shops, then send out press releases to the papers. All you need is for the right person to read yout book, just one (with a well-read column or popular newsletter). My first book didn't peak until a year and a half after it came out ... because I just kept working and the right people finally read the book, two of them.

    And finish the next one too.
