A few weeks ago Beth Kephart had a problem. Even with Netgalley and ARC mailings and BEA her book was in danger of getting a smaller printing than originally had been thought due to the lack of buzz. All of us who had read You Are My Only, were in love with the novel. Beth has a knack for writing love and hope into painful situations and I am so grateful that Amy brought Beth to my attention with her The Heart is Not a Size.
We emailed every blogger we knew that might enjoy Beth’s latest release, letting them know it was on Netgalley and they could use it for WoW posts. Excitement grew as did reviews and postings.
Colleen Modor from Chasing Ray helped with her blog, Bookslut column and Kirkus. Thank you Colleen.
Beth herself set up a scavenger hunt for her guest posts. We had a plan and we executed it.
A few days ago, Beth posted this on her Facebook page:
You Are My Only has gone back on press for a second printing, eleven days before it is due out in stores. You want to know if bloggers have an impact? You want to know if your work is valued? Don’t ask anymore.
So this is me, saying thank you, to every blogger who helped, who posted a WoW, reviewed, tweeted, Facebooked their Mum and everything else you did.
Together we can make a huge difference.
