Technology has created a wide variety of ways to reach audiences all over the world. All it takes is a little thinking outside the box, and nowadays you can market a self-published book in a variety of affordable and impactful ways. Virtual book tours, for example, are a great way to connect with readers from all corners of the globe, all from the comfort of your own home. Join Michele Towery, and Let Me Count the Ways God Loves You as they appear in features and interviews (such as the one below) in the weeks and months ahead!
Luckily for us, Michele Towery was kind enough to answer a few questions as the tour was getting started so that we can give you a sneak peek into the mind of the creator of Let Me Count the Ways God Loves You.
OP: Tell us a little bit about Let Me Count the Ways God Loves You. What is it about?
Michele: God’s love according to things God has made and things children love.
OP: Why did you decide to write this story?
Michele: A boy in my class was very depressed because his father was in jail and his mother was a drug addict. Also, he called himself a “bad boy.” I wanted to lift his spirits and also show him that he was a “good boy.” This was the inspiration for the book. Children need to be told that they are not alone in the world but are created and loved by God – wherever they are.
OP: How did you get your book published?
Michele: I got my book published by Outskirts Press. The Cover art was done by Wendy Leach.
OP: What types of readers would be interested in this story?
Michele: The types of readers that will be interested in my book are those who have low self-esteem, are angry at God, or whose parents would like a calming bedtime story for their child.
OP: What is special about your book?
Michele: The illustrations are gorgeous, the story is calming, and it raises self-esteem. It shows how great God’s love is for the child.
OP: What differentiates it from other books in the same category?
Michele: The illustrations and the story are different than other Christian books.
OP: Have you published any other books?
Michele: I have also published, Grandma, I Want To Be the Boss.
OP: Do you plan to publish more?
Michele: Yes, I plan to publish more books.
OP: How can someone learn more about your book or purchase it?
Michele: You can buy my book through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christian Family Supplies in Camarillo, CA, or http://www.christian.com.
OP: Thanks for your time, Michele! We look forward to learning more about you as you visit other bloggers!
