I’ve been calling indie bookstores for the last week. If they carry children’s books I politely ask them if they’d like to have a copy of one of the top new fantasy books, the first Diego novel. So far I’ve sent copies to Minnesota, Texas, Missouri, Washington, Oregon, Iowa, Indiana, and around California.

I read an article about promoting the best new fantasy novels, specifically The Hunger Games, and one of the key facets of making those adventure books a hit was sending them to bookstores. If those folks like them, they’ll spread the word.

Hope they like Diego and Magnifico!
