I scroll through Twitter for interesting posts to click. I sigh and yawn. Titles flash by that I’ve seen recycled in the past year. Whether it be about marketing or self publishing or the top five things you have to do to keep a pet hair-free house or have an elephant for a pet. Weighty topics like that.
I’ll skim marketing posts and feel so overwhelmed at the way some professionals describe what must be done, it’s a wonder anyone tries to publish a book, either traditionally or on their own. I usually say I don’t do much of any marketing, but really that’s not true.
I choose to participate in marketing and promotional events that require the least amount of effort and that will be long lasting. Like cross promotion. Like a free short story or a companion novella. Like wearing a cardboard sign with my book cover on it and walking around my local mall.
Of course, I make smaller efforts when it’s appealing to me. Like if there happened to be a blogfest that had to do with kissing. I mean what a great idea with Valentine’s Day coming up.
Oh, wait. There is one like that! (Like how I snuck that in there?)
Join us for an INDIE-kissing blogfest!
Who can join? Absolutely anyone!
When is it? February 14th!
Head on over to the Indelible blog to sign up with the linky link.
I was just wondering where all the fun blogfests had gone. For a while seemed like there were too many, and now I havent’ seen one in a long time. I just signed up for this one!
I see some blogfests around, but I’m always too late! 🙂
You’ve walked around the mall wearing a sign with your book cover on it?
Ha ha! No, I haven’t. 🙂
