|With Your Permission|
|SMF 1st Class|
|Although my book Rock And Roll Chiildren has now been out for 2 months, sales are a bit slow. In my desperation, I'm going to ask a big favour from the band and all the SMFs on the website. In order to generate interest, I am proposing that I post extracts from the three Twisted Sister concerts written about in the book. For this, I would need to know about copying and pasting on the site or posting attachments and I would like permission of course. I think it would be beneficial to everyone.|

|sorry to hear about the slow sales--hopefully your publisher/distributor can help with the promotions. |
Are you referring to posting video from the shows? concert reviews? fan comments? If it is anything related to getting permission from Twisted Sister or the Twisted Sister name, you may want to contact French Management, the address is on this site under "band management".
Hey--you might want to have your publisher improve your amazon listing.
There's no image, and you can't read excerpts. Your book title does not even come up in the Amazon search when you type in "Rock and Roll Children" I had to type in your full name and title to get the listing. With no image and no excerpts, you are highly unlikely to get shoppers who are browsing electronically. Also--is it available on Kindle?

|Thanks for that, but the problem is that in order to get optimum listing with Amazon, I would have to pay out a lot of money I don't have. However, you are right in the sense there is more they can do with improving the book's standing on Amazon. What I am proposing to do here is to post the actual accounts of Twisted Sister's concerts which take place in the book. In the story, Twisted Sister played 3 concerts at the Spectrum in Philadelphia in 1984,5 and 6. The characters in the book attend these concerts and what I write about them seeing and hearing is exactly what I remember seeing and hearing from these concerts. I have jsut written it in story form. |
If you are still unsure, I can send you a sample.
