How to Promote your Book

I thought this was such a great way to promote a children's book that I had to share it with you all.

I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

I must say a big thank you to Nicky for giving me such brilliant instructions on how to upload videos to blogs. Without your help I could never have done it.
Thanks Nicky.

Thanks for this, Anita!
We need more videos of authors book events like this.
I'd love to see a video of Lemmony Snicket's appearance on stage at the Hay Festival last year. He was extremely funny and he played the accordion! It seems that authors are expected to perform as well as write their own material these days!
mmmm...I thought I'd left my theatre days behind!

Hi Sue,
Pleased to see you visiting my blog. I'll look out for a video on Lemmony Snickets - so watch this space. I know what you mean about performing. That is why my years of doing whole school assemblies at very short notice (ie. Could you do the assembly they are all sat in the hall waiting for) will stand me in good stead one day.

Oops, sorry Lemony! There's only 1 'm' in the author's name - Lemony Snicket. I was thinking of lemmings as opposed to lemons!
Anita, if you can do school assemblies, you can do anything!

Thanks for this Anita- what an insight. Just goes to show we are indeed menat to be multi talented performers as Sue says. Let's hope if it ever comes to it our teaching days come in handy!

I live in hope Jude.
Keep smiling,
Love Anita

That was great, thanks for sharing!

I'm pleased you liked it Jez. Writers nowadays have to be so multi-talented. I think it is probably very like being a teacher. You have to be prepared to do a bit of everything.
