It has been a busy week calling and connecting with local school districts and principals near me so I can come do an author visit to the classrooms, read my book, and do a little hands-on math activity with it. The only trouble I have is… not many are getting back to me.
Do you have author visits at your school? When I call the schools it seems that many of them have not and some are not interested. I am thinking I will need to go to the schools so they can see how educational and what a great resource it could be for the kids. Here’s a little video I did so people can see what the hardcover book looks like.
This is my email to the principals of specific schools…
Hello Principal ….,
So far, I haven’t heard back from them, but it may be that school is still getting back into the swing of things or that my email got mixed up with the mass of other junk emails principals receive.
If any school wants a visit, I also do virtual visits where we can do a video conference call on Google Hangouts or Skype.
In other news, I finally signed onto Goodreads.com! I will be running a giveaway starting next Thursday that will run for one month. Ten lucky winners can get a hardcover book! I’ll post about it once it is live.
Take care! I’d love to hear if your school has ever had an author visit. Thanks!
