Where’s Should Have Played Poker?

Where’s Should Have Played Poker? by Debra H. Goldstein
One month down since Should Have
Played Poker
was published and while marketing, pr, and everything that goes
into launching a book has killed my writing time, I’m still standing.  Better yet, people are reading the book and
telling others they should read it, too. 
There are many different strategies and schemes for marketing a novel,
but nothing goes to the credibility of a written work more than word of mouth

The success of Anita Diamant’s The
Red Tent
is an excellent example of a novel owing its success to readers
finding it and telling others about it.  Another
that comes to mind is The Celestine Prophecy. When it was published, no one
predicted the book James Redfield was selling from his car’s trunk would be a
bestseller.  Now, I’m not saying Should
Have Played Poker
will end up in the same class as these books, but in today’s
day of social media, I’ll bet I can point to something neither of these authors
had: postings of where my book is being read. Similar to the Where’s Waldo
game, people have been playing Where’s Should Have Played Poker.  Here are some of the places it has turned up:
Don’t Ask 
Airport Travels
Between Hands in Asheville
What do you think about word of mouth?  If you happen to read or see a copy of Should Have Played Poker, feel free to join the fun by posting your picture on my facebook author page (and like it, too:)) – https://www.facebook.com/DebraHGoldsteinAuthor/ .
