Getting Noticed:Book Clubs by Carla Thorpe

With so many book clubs across the U.S. a lot of aspiring artist want to get connected.  They want to have them support their work and the career they are developing.  Not everyone can be endorsed by a major entity to be noticed by the masses.
What does the artist do?
Research: All book clubs do not focus on every genre of writing so an artist has to find out what book clubs would be interested in their story
Proposal: Send a letter to the head of the book club inviting them to learn more about you and your book.  After seeing what you have to offer to have the club read the book and then you would come do a Q&A.
Accountability: Once the book club has scheduled to read the work the artist must confirm the live meeting and be on time.  They want to meet a professional that keeps their word and follows through.
Follow-up: Get blurbs about how they felt about the work, would they recommend it to someone else and what they thought about meeting the artist.
Not each club will be interested in the book but some will.  No matter what always give 110% because no one knows what other opportunities can come from the support of a book club.
