From Insight Press, publisher of THE NEW COMMUNISM:
5 Things You Can Do To Spread BA’s THE NEW COMMUNISM Everywhere
September 19, 2016 | Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us
THE NEW COMMUNISM has the potential to change the way millions of people think about the possibility of a revolution to actually emancipate humanity. But that will only happen if people know about the book, get it and read it. Here are five critical things that everyone can do to help make that happen.
1. Buy the book. Get everyone you know to buy it (from Revolution Books or place your order online at Amazon or Barnes & Noble). Get your book group to buy and read it. And encourage everyone to buy a second copy for a prisoner.
2. Spread awareness about the book. Get out palm cards at events, in neighborhoods, on campuses, on bus seats, and in laundromats. On social media, spread the hash tag—#TheNewCommunism—everywhere.
3. Write a review of the book on Amazon. More reviews will give the book more prominence on the Amazon site. If you have purchased anything from Amazon in the past, you can review this book.
4. Get the book into local bookstores and libraries. People can’t read it if they can’t buy it or borrow it. Requests from patrons for the book can make a big difference in convincing bookstores and libraries to order it.
5. Write us about what you are learning—firstname.lastname@example.org. Where are you spreading word about the book? What responses are you getting? Who’s buying it and why? And what are people saying about it? (All this information will demonstrate the importance of THE NEW COMMUNISM to people in the book industry and can energize them to popularize and distribute the book more widely.) Also, what are important avenues (blogs, zines, news sites) where ads and articles about THE NEW COMMUNISM could be placed to reach important sections of society—students, artists, progressive intellectuals, immigrant communities, demoralized Bernie supporters, etc.?
