Midge Raymond, a publisher, Ashland Creek Press, who lives in Ashland, has 
written a book called Everyday Book Marketing.  It's for people who aren't 
sure how to promote their work.  I think it's been helpful to people and she 
does have a section on promoting to libraries.

Subject: [Libs-Or] Any ideas for marketing a self-published book?

Hi Oregon Librarians - 
I have a colleague who has just self-published a kids book, which his 
daughter illustrated. The book is a little bit unusual, but very clever. 
He's asking me for ideas on how to best market it. Does anyone have any 
ideas on this?  I have no experience with book promotion.   

I don't want to co-opt this listserv with advertising, but I will include the 
URL for the book here in case anyone is interested in checking it out 
further (or purchasing a copy for their library!):  www.thetreetalksback.com
