My turn for shameless self promo
 
So, my new book called Shoveling Snow was released today. It's a story that's been in my life a while now. It started out as a screenplay I wrote eight years ago that once had Chris Evans and Abigail Breslin attached. But due to various circumstances, including FBI involvement with the original financier, the movie never got off the ground. It's come close a few other times, but indie films have a way of often falling apart (Just ask the producers of Dallas Buyers Club...i think it took them twenty years.)

Anyway, i always really liked the story and the characters and felt there was a lot more to tell. So I wrote the novel version and put it out myself. I'm pretty proud of the result and hope some of y'all will enjoy it.

It's avail now on Amazon for Kindle/Kindle App. It's only 2.99. http://amzn.to/Os0XPr


Also, if you're interested in TWO books and havent read my first (which has lots of curse words **Not Tebow approved), check out My Sweet Saga here: http://amzn.to/1mUNpZ8

Make a specific twitter page for it and then search and add people through keywords.

Example, when I published my USMC memoir book, I made this:

https://twitter.com/Welcome_ToHell_

Then setup a system so it automatically DMs new followers with a message and a link to the purchase site.

Then search applicable keywords (in my case it wase "USMC" "USMC vet" "USMC GF" "USMC wife" "semperfi" and so on) and added people. People get the new follower notification, get excited and see who it is and now your twitterpage/massive advertisement is right in their face.

I stopped after 3k because I got bored, but it worked really well.

Going on national shows with big primary demographic audiences like Fox News probably helped a lot more, though.

Awesome job!

With today's technology/social media options I bet its a little easier nowadays to get the word out there.
