45 copies of my book have been sold and three nice reviews have been written on my amazon page.

Here is the link to the page:

I am going to get a discussion started on the college campus where I used to teach. I will try to get an interview started on a radio station in my city (Kingston, NY) and I want to have the book placed in local libraries. I will approach the local Barnes and Noble bookstore soon.

I am trying to find other markets for the book either online, or elsewhere. Does anyone have any ideas?

Have you looked into getting in with Borders also? they have a wide variety of diabetic books and diabetes related books. Well good luck and I hope to find your book here soon! Have you tried to put new copies on ebay? When I was first diagnosed I got all my diabetes related books on ebay.

Hope all goes well.

I forget, did you have an interview done on Amy T's Diabetes Mine? I don't know if it would be worth talking to her to see if she can offer some help with contacts and ideas.

Are there any local diabetes support groups nearby, have you tried posting flyers in your local supermarkets, healthcare centers, gyms or fitness centers ?
