One way to get publicity for your book is to have a media outlet do a story about you. Another is to write a column or an article, and as part of the story mention your book. This is a practice I encourage all authors to participate in when the opportunity presents itself.

Not too long ago, now 14-year-old Kayla Jarppi of Hudson was struggling with depression and anxiety. As part of her therapy, her counselor encouraged her to write. The thoughts she put down on paper eventually turned into a novel about a young girl dealing with mental illness and struggles of her own that was so well written, it has now been published.
Heaven's Note is the story of a a young girl who is abused at home and tries to cover it up to protect her parents, particularly her mother who is also abused. When her mother is murdered, and her stepfather put in jail for the crime he allegedly committed, the protagonist is sent off to a group home where her troubles continue. She eventually decides to run away, and learns the hard way that running from your problems is no way to solve them.
The book officially launched on July 21 at Chapter 2 Books in Hudson, Wisc. Thank you to store owners Brian and Sue Rogge for hosting the event. A preview story was published in the Hudson Star Observer.

Congratulations to Patricia Cumbie, author, The Shape of A Hundred Hips. Her book launched with lots of fanfare on July 19 at Open Book in Minneapolis. In addition to doing a reading and signing, there was also a bellydance performance at the event, followed by the dancers getting members of the audience up and dancing with them.
It has been a busy month for Patricia. She talked about her book on KARE TV on July 17, and the book was reviewed in the July 15 issue of The Pioneer Press. Book reviewer Mary Ann Grossman offers a glowing review, calling it "a well written memoir," and also saying, "Who knew belly dance could lead to such wisdom?" Here is a link to the full review.
