When I wrote my first novel, the need to promote it myself never entered into my expectations.
That was a job for someone else. Someone with the education and knowledge needed to circumvent the web of social media madness. Certainly, any publisher I would contract with would have that part of the process covered. The thought that I would eventually take on the challenge myself, and even like it, was unthinkable.
From the beginning of my career in 2007, I’ve gained an unbelievable amount of proficiency in these ever-changing promotional sites and found, mostly by trial and error, capabilities and the information that makes life a lot easier. Heck, nowadays, I hardly ever lose it, swear, chaw at my nails, bang my head on my desk…. My problem is virtually a lack of time. Like all authors, my job is to write books. It's what I do... excuse me... what I'm supposed to do.
