Guest Post: Reaching Your Readership and Including Your Fans in Your Work by Kasey Crawford Kellem

Without even knowing it, I became a businesswoman upon writing my Mind Over Matter Books for children. I guess I never thought the whole process through and just believed that somehow the books would magically get into the hands of all children. I learned real quick that was not the case and that I had to creatively market these books immediately!

Since my Mind Over Matter Books are for children, I knew I had to educate and spark the interest of parents, grandparents, teachers, care givers and anyone who has children in their lives. Being somewhat techno-savvy, I created a website introducing the first book out in print, Believe. Social Media certainly has been a blessing in many ways! I was able to link my website onto my Facebook page to get the information out to people. I then created a Facebook page for Mind Over Matter Books and invited about 500 people to “like” my page. I am constantly posting updates on the books, book shows, interviews and other media events on Facebook.

I had heard buzz words like “Blog” and “Tweet” and quickly became a blogger and tweeter to get the information out to all of those who have or work with children. I became a member or LinkedIn and Google+ and have promoted my books and connected with a number of professionals who work with children. Recently, I made a YouTube video, which included illustrations from Believe and an interview I had on the Children’s Authors Show. Within a few months, I had every social media tool and several Internet sites, all informing people about my books and mission, linked together. The word was definitely out!

I have contacted many of the local newspapers, TV stations, radio stations, children’s and parent magazines, PTA groups, preschools, day cares, children’s stores, etc. to tell them about my Mind Over Matter Books. I have entered the book into children’s book expos so that educators and caregivers all over the country will see the book. Believe has been promoted in several local newspapers, all of the area libraries, my church, a popular local radio station and is supposed to be aired on a local news station this month. People believe in Believe!
 
It is also important for me to work with the actual children. I shared my book at a preschool where I was able to read to several 3-7 years old children. This was a wonderful experience as I found the children really grasping the concept of “Believing” and talking about what they believe about themselves. I am scheduled for a few book signings and readings at local libraries and elementary schools, as well. I hope to get into a number of daycares and preschools over the course of the year to teach the children to believe!

In about 9 months, time I went from simply having a mission to write these Mind Over Matter Books, to being on a mission to get the books in the hands of as many children as possible. Just when I think I have exhausted one avenue another road opens! The movement has begun and parents, teachers and others who work with children are feeling the importance to get this message into the hands of all children. I am grateful for the internet, social media, radio and television, as they have been instrumental in promoting my books and my message to anyone who works with children.

Marsha Cook will be joining Fran Lewis to welcome Fran's new show, Discussions with Fran Lewis on The World Of Ink,. Fran is a wonderful interviewer, educator and reviewer. On Fran's first show she will interview author Louise Geesdeh Barton the author of The Memoir of Liberian Refugees: So Far to Run and author Bonnie Virag who wrote the compelling novel Stovepipe. Louise lived as a refugee in Liberia, survived more than her share of horrors and horrific times in this true story of her life. As you hear the voice of the author and listen to her story you will truly understand her courage, persistence and will to live while running for her life for ten years and hoping to escape what so many did not. Bonnie grew up with 18 brothers and sisters and went through the foster care system dealing with many families, abuse, poor social workers as she tells our listeners of her life and that of losing more than just her own family.

A story so graphically, emotionally and well told that each page holds the reader captive as you hear her voice and those of her sisters. You feel the pain inflicted on them and the sadness and stress inflicted on these children by strangers who really never cared about them, went through the motions of pretending to be their parents and one woman who never gave up on herself. Thank you for giving me the honor or reading, reviewing and sharing your story. Two authors and two true stories told as they lived these experiences first hand and want to share it with you, our listeners. Fran Lewis: Interviewer, educator and reviewer.
Chat room will be open - for more info go to www.michiganavenuemedia.com
