Vandermeulen’s new fiction release, “Conquer All Obstacles”, hit the stands less than 3 weeks ago.
“Conquer All Obstacles” is an emotional thrill ride as it pulls on the heart strings, fans the flames of anger, and tugs at the smile within. This book is a must have for those with a penchant for an edge of your seat pulse pounding love story.” >Brian Knight Book Review from PPS<
The exposure is set in motion.
Thursday afternoon, November 12th, she drove from Yorkton into Rocanville, Saskatchewan (her home-town) and hosted an hour presentation. A festive occasion beginning with welcoming hugs, the topic of discussion (“Journey to Publication”), and cheers of congratulations of having her dream come true.
Again, the joyous occasion was duplicated that evening in Moosomin, Saskatchewan. Vandermeulen sizzled with energy, sharing her writing story with a new and interested group. Book signing, huge smiles and clapping ended the evening.
An attention grabber, the author, Jo-Anne Vandermeulen, and her novel, “Conquer All Obstacles” set the stage. On the jet black cover, the vibrant green scarf loosely swags into a heart-shape, symbolizing the unveiling romantic events of this turn-pager story.
From the first word, Vandermeulen’s passion for writing and storytelling takes center stage. Instantly, you are immersed in Tara’s life. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to care for the characters in “Conquer All Obstacles”. You will find yourself connecting with them on multiple levels. >Brian Knight Book Review from PPS<
Yesterday (Nov. 14), McNally’s in Saskatoon was buzzing. Several times, people lined up in front of Vandermeulen’s book signing table to purchase books. Eyes scanned her cover to “Conquer All Obstacles”, fingers flipped the pages, and greeting exchanged. For Vandermeulen’s 2 hour Book Launch old time buddies, book-club group members, Facebook friends, family, and new acquaintances shook hands, exchanged hugs, and requested her book to be signed.
“The first step in selling your book is exposure.” Said Vandermeulen.
“Sometimes a viewer has to see the book several times before purchasing. After exposure comes the ‘buzz’. Now the buzz takes time...often 3-6 weeks. Once your book is read and enjoyed by a few, they will share this with their friends. Their friends will tell others, and so on...Viral promotion is like a snowball rolling down a hill. It gets bigger and bigger.” Vandermeulen continued.
So where’s Vandermeulen off to next?
November 19th at Coles Book Store in Yorkton, she will make an appearance from noon – 4:00. Taking advantage of the Thursday marketing crowd in the Mall, Vandermeulen will be ready to sign her books and answer any questions.
Her weekend will be filled. Saturday, A Book Launch is set for 2:00pm in the Capital City. During the afternoon, She will be available to sign “Conquer All Obstacles at The Books and Brier Patch in Regina. And on Sunday, Vandermeulen heads back to her home-crowd. At 2:00pm in the Uptown Library, Vandermeulen will have her books there for sale and will be happy to sign even more.
Author Jo-Anne Vandermeulen’s debut novel, is sure to take the world by storm. I see a bright future for this up and coming author as more titles follow this engaging tale of love and survival.” >Brian Knight Book Review from PPS<
