As an artist, getting support from your local community is easy. Just ask.
I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to ask people for favours, but here’s what I discovered. My community loves to help locals. Last Friday, my local newspaper, The Columbia Valley Pioneer, published an article about me.
I’d sent them an email, explaining who I am (a local author), what my credentials are and that DESCENT had just been published. They responded within the hour saying they’d love to interview me. I’d procrastinated for days before I sent the email, and now I wish I hadn’t hesitated.
Because of the article, the Invermere Public Library asked me if they could put a copy of DESCENT on their shelves.
So…DESCENT in now available at the Invermere Public Library.
One little email led to two great opportunities, and each day a new milestone moment creates a little happiness in my life.
The questions becomes: what else should I ask for?
Thanks for reading…
