Wow, it’s amazing how tired you can feel after getting sick. Although I feel better, I am exhausted. But, I’m not going to let that stop me. I’ve got things to do, you know?
Anyways, now that I’ve sold my very first book and I’ve gotten it into the final stages of getting it printed, I need to start working on getting my work out there. Dean has already suggested that I get magnets for the truck, and to send out as many FB and Twitter posts that I can. I have already been emailing with my local library to see if I can’t get a book signing at one of the branches. I also am thinking about contacting our city’s TV station and seeing if they want to interview me. I have business cards and bookmarks coming. I want to make some flyers to put up in some of the public places, and once I get the book onto Amazon, I’m hoping that I can get the people who have already read my book to post (positive) reviews online so that it will generate more interest.
All of this is hard for me (esp the interview and book signing) b/c I’m an introvert, so putting myself out there like that, or even in general in regards to this book, is killing me slightly on the inside. It’s hard for me to put this marketing plan into place. Although I have my husband helping me and cheering me on for this entire thing, it’s hard for me. And that is on top of all the other anxieties that are coming with this endeavor. And I have A LOT of anxieties that are coming with publishing this book.
OK, so I just need to rally and get a move on. Time for another FB post!
