I’ve been trying a few things to get On Swift Wings in front of more eyes recently. I’ve offered and donated copies to my junior and senior high schools. (Sir William Aberhart High School accepted) I also offered a copy to the University of Calgary, but they report that they don’t accept self-published books. I’ve also been strategically placing copies of the book in free little libraries around nearby neighbourhoods.
I’m trying everything I can think of to drum up more reviews of the book. I believe that based on the informal reviews and the one formal review I have so far that the book has potential if it can just get out of the “friend zone.” I’m also totally open to new ideas here if anybody cares to comment with suggestions. All ideas are helpful.
I’m posting a few survey questions to see if I can identify how to do better.
I’m really curious what kind of answers I’ll get from this poll. And as a data scientist, I’ll keep whatever is possible open so anybody can review this.
By the way, if anybody would like to know more about something. Questions about the book, the process, things I’ve learned, whatever you want to know, let me know. I’d love for this blog to be a little less me writing the occasional thought, and a little more interactive. (One more poll… a little more direct.)
Thank you all for reading and contributing! I really appreciate all feedback.
