Author Dora Crow wrote to tell me about a clever way she’s using YouTube to promote her book.
“In order to share the story of Winky & Wonder, I’ve begun reading my children’s book on YouTube as an online ‘Children’s Storytime.’ I uploaded the prologue a few days ago, and today I uploaded the first chapter (in Part 1 and Part 2, 10 minutes each). I plan to upload one chapter
Dora says she is linking to the videos from her website. She welcomes feedback on the videos, so here’s mine:
If I were a kid, I’d like it a whole lot more if, after your greeting, you started reading the story with your back to me so I could see the illustrations.
P.S. The cat’s a nice touch!
