Traveling with Fish

$345

6

Being a North Carolinian often comes with a true love for North Carolina.  One of my first and most favorite poetry chapbooks is "The Cat and the Carroll A. Deering & Other North Carolina poems."  It contains poems all about North Carolina legends and true tales.  It was really fun chapbook to write.

"Traveling with Fish" is my travel postcard in literary form all about the NC coast near Hatteras.  It's a story that evolves from a travel writer inheriting a fishing cabin from an acquaintance she barely knows and how she and her sons, husband, their dog and their fish all move together and adapt to life on the coast.

My project is to help with publication and marketing costs of the book.

Risks and challenges

When publishing, there's always the challenge of finding readers.

Marketing and PR can be an issue - how to get the word out about the project.

I plan to market this book on my local Facebook poetry page, Poetry in LA (@poetryinla) as well as with my E-zine, The Poetry Market E-zine, which has about 2200 subscribers, and on other social media. I also plan to market it in book form locally as well to educators and students who are interested in North Carolina's coast.
