The last three days have been wonderful, in terms of our book. On a personal/health front, things are not quite as good. On the plus side, Walt at Five Rainbows sent me a final PDF of Views from Sandhausen for endorsement purposes. Over the next month I will be sending out requests for book endorsements, sending LOTS of requests. If I send out 100 and receive back 10 solid, positive endorsements, I’ll be thrilled. Actually, if I have three great ones, my endorsement work is done. So, let the brainstorming begin!
The challenge: come up with candidates, create a brilliant endorsement request letter, follow-up without being annoying, and put the compelling ones on the book’s back cover, and inside all three versions – on an endorsement page(s).
I have completed the ‘Brilliant’ endorsement letter; one for famous people and one for the press. At the moment, I am scouring the web for likely endorsement blurbs, and sending on the appropriate letters.
That’s really it for today; I have work to do!
