What Happened When I Placed a Print Ad in a Children’s Book Magazine by Shana Gorian

This month, my book, Rosco the Rascal at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade made a debut appearance in a quarter page ad in the March edition of Story Monsters Ink magazine. Rewind to early January for a moment, just long enough to explain that deciding whether or not to place the ad was a bit of a gamble for me, in terms of cost.
