In Dogtober (yes you read it right, it comes after September!) we hope to launch our third Squarehead story. Â As I’ve mentioned before, it features a brave little dog called Chinwag, who refuses to be told he can’t do something just because he’s a dog. Â Like all our books, this one carries a message about self-confidence, self-esteem and self-belief. Â I guess it also contains our own story – havingÂ made the decision to go out on a limb and become our own publisher.
It’s been an exciting ride. Â I’m constantly amazed at and gratefulÂ to Â theÂ clever and generous people who have helped us on our way.
WeÂ head towards our Â launch, with nothing much in the way of funds, and a distinct underdog feeling. Yet we’re Â making plans for this to be our BIGGEST, most professional launch yet. Â We want this to be humungous!
It’s one of the great truths about any venture that the more you learn, the more you know you need to learn. Â It’s also important never to be afraid to ask for help…
So that’s what I’m doing now: HELP!
We need reviewers. Â We need publicists to help spread the word. Â We need help to build our e-mailing list. Â We need advice on how best to use Facebook, adwords and any other clever online stuff. Â We need advice from anyone who knows what they are doing. Â Please get in touch. Â If you know someone who could help us – please prompt them to get in touch. Â Let’s make Chinwag’s Tale our first BLOCKBUSTER.
