2 days. Oh my gosh. 2 days.
Dragos: Burned will be released upon the world.
My ego doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Maybe it’ll just be hysterical.
Learning ‘All About Marketing’. Wow.
Who woulda thunk there was so much to learn about such an innocent seeming topic. But with any publisher now-a-days, E or New York, they’re all asking authors to carry a heavy part of the marketing bucket.
I think my brain’s about to explode.
But I’m learning. And soon (hopefully for the love of sanity) it will become a familiar thing.
I read a great document sent to me by my publisher. The one thing stressed above all others was the time.
As authors, we need to get the most bang for our buck–not just money, but time.
So right now, Marketing is taking up a lot of time. But as I get the hang of it, I’ll find new ways to use the time to set up, then be able to keep the ball rolling with little effort. It’s finding that ‘downhill’ that I’m working on now.
You tell me, what is your favorite way to market?
I posted yesterday at Plot Mamas about the ups and downs of life.
There’s a country song, can’t think of the name this second due to sleep deprivation, but there’s a line that goes “Sometimes you’re the windsheild, sometimes you’re the bug.”
I love that song. It’s just so apt, and can be used for any aspect of life.
From plotting, to writing, to editing, to submitting, to rejections, to…
Well, to finally getting that very first offer.
You heard me right, folks.
Someone out there is crazy enough to actually pay me for my writing. They’re going to publish me.
Yeah, it’s still feeling a little dreamlike.
And yeah, I’m still pinching myself every once in a while.
Give me a few days, and I’ll lay it all out. My experience up till now.
But, for now,
