Let me explain.    I am 69 years old, and I published my first book after retiring three years ago.  Since writing the book, I have been involved with relocating, some health issues, and recovering from an accident. Anyway, I have not had much time to do any promotion on my book.

I am new to wordpress and with the help of my soon to be daughter-in-law, we were able to get me set up.   It is difficult trying to set anything up over the phone so I am just starting to  use wordpress.  I NEED YOUR HELP!!!

I need to know the best way to use wordpress to get the word out about my book.  I am not on social media, ie: facebook, twitter, etc., etc.    How do I submit my book to the young adult book reviewers that are on wordpress?  Do I need to send them a copy of my  book?   I am totally lost as to what to do next!

Any help that anyone can give me will be deeply appreciated.  You can go to my wordpress page under contact and send me any tips, suggestions, etc in the comments box or email me at


I appreciate you taking the time to read this.   Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!



About johnbalser

I was born in Farmington, Maine in April of 1948. I lived on several farms in Maine, located in Chesterville, North Jay, and Limerick, until the age of 10. I moved to Durham, New Hampshire when I was in the fifth grade and later relocated to Manchester, New Hampshire where I resided through High School. I enter the Air Force in 1966 (two months after high school) and served one year (1968-1969) in Vietnam. I returned to school in the early 70's and received a BS in Business Management from New Hampshire College while working in the computer industry. I continued my computer career through 1990 at which time I left the computer industry and opened up my own business in the New Hampshire seacoast area. I remained self employed for 17 years. In 2007, I took a position with the Department of State, Passport Services, located in Portsmouth, NH. I continued there until my retirement in April of 2014. I did not finish my first book, Mystery on Macomber Hill (A Baker Boys Adventure), until I retired. I am currently writing a second book titled, ME, MYSELF AND I. It is a story about a boy who was raised in an orphanage, got adopted, and continued on into manhood. But wait, there was one small problem. While at the orphanage he developed a "VOICE" in his head that stayed with him right into manhood. They shared the good and bad times while the VOICE seemed to get him in trouble , more often than not. Hopefully it will be completed by year end. I haves been married for 45 years. My wife, Linda, and I relocated to Milo, Maine in July of 2014 to enjoy our retirement. I am an avid genealogist and have spent over 20 years researching my family history with my sister. I also do genealogy research for other individuals. My wife and I enjoy traveling and site seeing with our new family addition, Sprout, an Australian Cattle Dog that we adopted from a shelter in October of 2014. I hopes to continue writing other books in the Baker Boys Adventure series.
