Thirteen books, a baker’s dozen, was the total from Reedom Elementary.
The event is complete and the word about Yalu and the Puppy Room has spread a little further and despite this low total, I still had fun trying to turn this hobby of mine into a job.
I’m still convinced that the marketing method of coming to the school, read, answering student questions, giving out bookmarks and flyers, and coming back a week later to drop off books works best at local schools. The other option would be sending the flyer home a week before the showing up.
Not all school events yield high sales. You can do everything right and still not get what you expect. Wait a second. That sounds like something Yalu did at the start of the book so life does imitate art and vise versa.
