How To Help

If you are enjoying our first book, and would like to see
more, there are some easy things you can do to help get the word
out about Dancing Skunk Media. We are so thankful about all the
things people are doing to help. Of course buying the book or giving it as gifts
for birthdays and holidays is fantastic, but here are some other
things that don’t require money:

On Line

Book Sellers:

  • Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com use feed back to
    gage how popular a book is and how to recommend it. 

    • You can rate the book with stars and write
      short reviews (a couple of words if you like) and this will tell
      the web page’s computers to recommend the book to
      others.
  • Here is the
    review form for Amazon
  • And here is the form for Barnes and Noble.
    • When on the pages you can also click to “like” the book
      and add it to wish lists.

Blogs

  • If you read blogs that have
    subject matter that touches our books (parenting, early education,
    indi art, skunks, etc) You could send a note to the blogger telling
    them about DancingSkunkMedia.com and our books.

  • If
    you are on Facebook, you can “Like” Dancing Skunk Media.

  • Also, when DSM posts things you find interesting, you can
    click “Share.” 

    • Then the news will be posted to
      your profile and thus it will show up in the news feeds of your

Youtube /Tangle

      it Stars, and write comments.
