The first year of blogging about the adventures of publicizing the existence of the book "Travels in a Blue Chair" has come and gone!! I can't believe it, there has been so much positive energy!
Here is a brief rundown of the web based efforts;
4 TV interviews
6 Newspaper articles
1 Radio interview
3 Speaking engagements, with one being to schoolchildren, yay!
2 Book signings (one in the rain!!)
700 Profile views on YouTube
4000+ Views of my YouTube video interviews
40000+ Hits on my website http://www.bluechairbook.com
1st contribution from royalties to the Rotary Polio Eradication Fund,
and numerous magazine and online articles and interviews!
I could never have imagined all the people, from across the world as far away as New Zealand, who have contacted me to say they have enjoyed the book.
I still have work to do, especially breaking into the USA, but I am gratified with the progress we have all made together. Maybe Regis and Kelly will get interested in my book?
So hats off to 2008 and I know that the best is yet to come in whatever awaits in 2009!!
