I would like to say thank you to everyone who took advantage of the recent week of giving out free copies of the first three released collections of my poetical works via Amazon.com. Your consumer efforts delivered many days of double digit downloads, and to me this is a very amazing display, and I cannot say thank you enough.. Already starting 2021 off in a much better beginning and state of mind, both professionally and personally. I hope to see some new reviews from some fresh faces on all of the collections, especially the two most recent chapbooks. As of this moment in time, there has not been any written/submitted reviews for 21 Reasons/Lies and only a couple reviews for Valedictorian of the Bottom Feeders. If you have purchased and/or read these collections, your input is one of the most powerful selling tool available. Share your thoughts, etc. on these chapbooks with the world, they are awaiting.
In preparation for the next full sized collection of works, A Lesser Man, I am preparing to embark on development of a marketing plan and strategy. What works and what doesn’t? Of the previous book releases what method drew you to read or purchase one of my collections?
Of the new collection on a nearing date, I will be submitting some revisions to the book, a few of these changes are major, i.e. omission of a couple of pieces, the addition of a couple more deserving poems that will hopefully lighten the tone of the overall collection. Those who purchased kindle versions of the book will have the changes happen automatically. Those of you old school readers who purchased paperback copies will have the opportunity of having a first edition that is being limited to a very low number of copies. Sadly, you’d have to purchase the 2nd edition to see the changes made, which I promise will be very much for the better. Maybe one of my better gifts with all of this is that maybe one day that your investments in me may actually materialize a financial opportunity for you would be a welcoming thought to a grateful poet’s mind.
