My new book “How to Start a Chronic Illness Small Group Ministry” is now completed and published.¬† I had a speaking engagement in April and a box of the books literally arrived at 6:45 or so the night before I was speaking and exhibiting.

So now I am back in the mode of marketing a book. . . one that is new–and in my opinion, needed. It is, however, needed only by a certain group of people. For the audience I serve with my ministry, Rest Ministries, I am it will meet a great need. I addressed 10 years worth of emails and questions I’ve received from people eager to start¬† a chronic illness small group or support group in their church or community.

It’s not a book that will be on the shelves at Borders. And that is okay.

I self-published the book under Rest Ministries Publishers. The books I have written over the years keep my organization financial afloat. The benefit is there is no “middle man” and my ministry financially benefits.

I’ve already began to receive questions about the book, the printer, t0 the cover design and marketing, so the next few months as I check things off my “marketing to do list” (which I have put together after my umpteenth time of reading John Kremer’s 1001 Ways to Market Your Book) I will do my best to keep a running list here of what I have done to market my book.

I hope it is helpful, and I am always eager to hear from you in the comments section about your own experiences, resources, etc.

Warmly,

Lisa
