WHEN SISTERS HELP one another we all benefit. This was the feeling I had recently while cruising around, looking for some book promotion advice. I stumbled upon some, and came away with that unique and fabulous feeling I only get when I witness one woman helping out another, and have only to keep the good moving along to help some more. You know that feeling? I know you do.
Few things are more perplexing than how to pitch a book to bookstores. After all, they’ve heard it all before. So how to make that pitch unique, as well as successful? That’s the helping hand being lent here by Sarah Pinneo and her wonderful blog, Blurb is a Verb. She’s merely trying to help out all of us who have books we love, and who want to get those books into the hands of others who will love them too. Good goal, sister.
So, Sarah: This huzzah is for you. Your recent blog post in which you interview Jenn Northington, the events manager at Word, one of the finest bookstores on the planet, made me smile from earring to earring. Generosity, simplicity, and good advice all rolled into one. Nice job, sister.
You are the newest in a very short list of sisters we admire. And enjoy the company. It’s a great group.
