Can you find DREAM OF ME on one of these bookshelves?  

Of course not, and you even know what you are looking for.

As of today, Amazon lists 1,414,078 titles for its Kindle store alone.  That accounts for far more books than you see on these shelves.  It’s no wonder that a novel like DREAM OF ME is invisible to the average reader.

WORD OF MOUTH is still the book reader’s most valuable friend, even in this age of modern communication.  Luckily, word of mouth now includes every social media venue available to us online.

So here’s a check list of things anyone can do to help get the word out about DREAM OF ME -- or any other favorite Indie book.  Most of them cost nothing but a little time.
