Help Wanted: Must Like Books

As some of you already know, I've been getting the illustration proofs for my children's book to approve. Along with those, proofs for promotional material have been turning up in my email. To say I'm excited would be an understatement. For the last couple of months I've spent a good deal of time figuring out what products I want to use for promotions. Now it's all starting to feel real.

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be ordering bookmarks, postcards and stickers graced with artwork from my book. These items will need to be distributed to schools, libraries and bookstores. Here's where the 'Help Wanted' part comes in. I'm looking for people who are willing to help distribute these things in their communities and help spread the word about my upcoming release.

If you know of places where my book would catch peoples' eyes (particularly small children), I want you. If you regularly visit your public library, local bookstore or are friendly with teachers, I want you. If you just love people and want to hand out bookmarks or stickers willy-nilly, I want you!

Anyone who is willing to help me out, please raise your hand. Or, at the very least, send me an email with your address. As soon as the materials are in, I will mail you a packet to distribute to the best of your abilities, along with my eternal gratitude.

I thank you all in advance for your time and effort to help make this work.
