Small Press Month, Post # 3
March 3 - If you've written a memoir, family history, biography, autobiography, history book (even for historical fiction), or any other type of book that notes people, places or things related to a geographic area: send a copy to the historical society in any and all cities, counties or states you have mentioned. They will usually send you a letter telling you that the book has been officially entered into the historical records of that entity. Then in your marketing materials, make sure you mention that it is included in the historical collections of the state (or county or city).
