I swore this year I wouldn’t make any resolutions for 2014. Rarely do I ever get through a list. I still haven’t read all the Pulitzer winners, and the 40 pounds I lost a few years back returned with friends. While I do acknowledge that my life could use improvement, I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment.
However, I do realize that when it comes to book promotion – I stink. I have several books available for sale, but when people ask me about them I tend to flush and mutter to myself before slinking away. It’s no way to sell yourself, I know, and few if any can accuse me of being an extrovert. I wish sometimes I had an identical twin with a big mouth to do that part of the job for me.
So I’ve made a slight amendment to my promise for 2014, I will learn to brag. Those who have read my books enjoyed them, so I do believe I have something to offer avid readers. I suppose in the back of my mind I’ve avoided promotion because I didn’t want to become “that person.” You know the type – every tweet is a hard sell, every status update is a pitch. Of course, if I say nothing how will people know I’m here.
That is my resolution, what’s yours? Please comment below and I’ll draw a winner to receive one ebook from my backlist. Good luck, and check out the books I have for sale, listed on the left!
