July 27

I've been fighting a sinus/head cold/allergy thing off and on for a month. I got up today and realized my first romantic suspense releases on Friday and I have not set up any signings. I have a blog tour that starts next week. There is also a local authors appreciation day at the library that I should attend and it would be great if I had books to sign then. I need to look into that.

Some authors are so good at promotion. They start six months in advance of a deadline. They carry their books around with them and always have one to sell or sign. They create wonderful publicity tours and really work the circuit. Kind of like movie stars do when their movie first comes out. I know I need to do better. But man, it would be easier if I had a publicist and a whole troupe of PR people putting it together and simply telling me where to show up and when. LOL That might happen for movie stars and big, big name authors. But the rest of us can only pretend.

Hope you have a great week and I hope you don't get tired of my blogging about promotion this week. Cheers!

  1. I agree. It would be so much easier if someone was there to tell me when and where to be to promote a book. Sigh. If only.

    Hope you get to feeling better. And I'm so excited for Friday. Can't wait to buy a copy of your book.
