Blog 3- Book Promotion and Interactive Readings!

In my last blog, I told you about the Tooth Fairy and her playful frog, Vitric. My third blog is about promoting my book, “Joey trifft die Zahnfee” and our interactive readings!

Read the blog to know why it took me so long to publish a new one.

Book Promotion – Three phases

Writing a book is easier than promoting it, says Mom. She encouraged me to get involved in the promotion process. Mom wanted me to learn how authors do it. She said this will help me to be more organized with school projects. To make it more fun and interesting, we divided it into three phases: 1)Identifying and finding our readers, 2)Ordering the promotion material, and 3) Distribution. 

It was a lot of work, but I had fun!

First, we made a list of all the pre-schools, elementary schools, public libraries, and bookstores in our city and nearby towns. Mom said it will help us to calculate how many flyers and posters we needed. Second, we ordered the flyers and posters from a local printing company. Their price was within our budget. Third, we distributed them. Mom also asked if it will be possible to do a reading. We were happy to hear when two Public Libraries let us do the reading. 

Book Readings and the Christmas Markets

Let me first tell you about the famous Christmas Markets in Germany. There you find typical Christmas food and drinks from each region. You also find sweets for children, Christmas decorations, and gifts for the family. In big cities like Cologne and Frankfurt, they are open during the Advent Season. In Letmathe the market is open only on the third and fourth Sunday of Advent. 

1st Book Reading: Letmathe Public Library

Sunday, December 11, 2022 

It was the inauguration day of the Christmas Market. The Program includes many activities for family. We were part of the Children’s Program. My friends and I always meet at the Market. We sing, listen to music and stories, eat sugar-coated almonds (my favorite), and drink warm fruit juice.

Our reading was at the Children’s Corner on the lower floor of the library. My mom used different voices during the reading. The children asked her questions. It was an interactive reading. The parents congratulated her. My friends gave me a high-five! The librarian’s assistant invited her to come back. I was very proud of her.

2nd Book Reading: Iserlohn Public Library

Friday, January 6, 2023 

Our second reading was on the festivity of The Three Kings. There were 20 children with their parents. Mom used different voices and sounds during the reading. The children played along. All were impressed with the story. The Librarian was speechless and invited Mom to come back for a reading. 

My mom is the best storyteller in the whole world. I think she will win an Oscar.
