Road to Publication: Promoting

So Right with You is out. Now what? Time to promote. No one ever tells you what it is really like to promote. Perhaps it is best left unsaid, kind of like child birth. After all, our books are our babies, too. So ladies keep those birthing stories to yourself and perhaps it is best if the negative side of publishing is downplayed. Perhaps, if we had know that at the beginning of our journey, we might have given up. Some of the greatest books might never have been written either. So anytime you feel the desire to quit, try looking up some of your favorite authors and see how hard they worked to become best selling authors. And if that doesn’t work for you, contact a friend to talk you off the ledge, so to speak. With that being that said, what have I learned from the two months that my book has been out? To be a writer takes tenacity, hard work, and a bit of luck. I am still looking for the luck, but I still have plenty of tenacity and willingness to work hard. Don’t give up on your dreams.
