That road can take you one to two years to travel, but then . . . you reach your destination . . . your goal. All your doubts, impatience, and frustration disappears. Your book is now available for sale at retailers and bookstores! Now you can relax and take a breather before you start on your next book.
Uh, but, wait a minute. You thought writing the book and having to be patient through the submissions and publishing journey was tough? Well, roll up your sleeves and dig in, because now comes the hard part - selling your book.
Okay, all this is a lead-up to my big announcement: Walking Through Walls is now available for sale. :)
Amazon doesn't have the book's cover on the sales page yet, but click on the blank image - I uploaded the cover to it. Hopefully, they'll get the cover up in 4-8 weeks.

For those who haven't heard of Walking Through Walls, it is a middle grade fantasy adventure based on an ancient Chinese tale. You can read a number of reviews, check out a couple of interior illustrations, and find out more about my book at: http://walkingthroughwalls-kcioffi.blogspot.com
Don't forget to check out the book trailer:

And, for anyone who has read Walking Through Walls it'd be greatly appreciated if you'd write a review, however small or large, and post it to Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Goodreads, Shelfari, LibraryThing . . .whichever and where ever you have the time to go to.
For those who have already written a review, please post it to any or all of the sites mentioned above!
Reviews are a powerful selling tool.
I take the time to post my reviews to the usual places, and I always make them long enough to post to the article directories, particularly EzineArticles.
This strategy produces a couple of benefits:
1. The author gets free effective promotion to a broader audience.
2. The reviewer gets the satisfaction of helping out a fellow author, plus increased visibility from the review posting sites and article directories. And, remember, you never know who will end up reading your work online, whether a review, an article, an e-book, or other content.
And, please go to the Walking Through Walls page on AMAZON and CLICK on the LIKE button. Then down just a bit and on the right hand side, you'll find a Tweet Button and Facebook Button - if you click on both that'll add more sparks to the promotion fire!
For those of you who haven't read the book yet, but intend to, after you've read it, if you liked it, PLEASE write a brief review and post it to any or all of the places I mentioned above.
Any and all help in bringing visibility to Walking Through Walls will be greatly appreciated.
Okay, enough of my shameless plug for promotion help.
