Chickens As Pets is my guide to keeping chickens as family pets in towns and cities, currently available in a Kindle Edition for £3.99 with the iPad Interactive Edition coming soon via the Apple iBookstore. Since launching the Chickens As Pets website and social networking profiles on Twitter, G+ and Facebook, I’ve seen interest surge and have been working hard at the marketing side of things.
You can like Chickens As Pets on Facebook, +1 the book on Google+ and follow @chickensaspets on Twitter. The local newspaper in my home town, Chorley Guardian, is running an interview with me about the book in this week’s edition and I’ve other promotional activities planned, including a competition with the lovely people at Verm-X, a company that makes natural herbal products to keep all your animals healthy and parasite-free.
I don’t foresee the promotional stuff ever ending, given that Chickens As Pets is a book that simply won’t date and will remain useful for poultry-keepers into the future. Of course there will be a new wave of activity to promote the iPad Interactive Edition as soon as it’s available to buy.
It’s hard work. I’m just glad that I happen to be enjoying it immensely! I only wish I’d shared my knowledge in this way sooner. I’m hard at work writing something else, this time not chicken-related. Woof! is an adult comedy novel about a group of students in 1990s Manchester, how they meet and how they then go through life into the 21st Century. I’ll update on that as and when I’ve anything I want to share.
Alongside Chickens As Pets I’ve got a poetry collection out for Kindle too, called Cannibal Delia. It’s available here in the Amazon UK Kindle Store but is also available in the US, French, German, Spanish and Italian Amazon Kindle Stores as well.
