It’s been brought to my attention that I don’t promote myself enough. In the interest of home-training, good manners, etc… I’ve tried to be subtle about this, but I’ve run out of patience folks. By my count I’ve given away at least a dozen copies of Try A Little Tenderness. Including three from my birthday contest. And with one exception I’ve had NO FEEDBACK AT ALL. Is this a case of no news is good news or what? Where is the buzz, people? Nobody’s facebooking/twittering/or myspacing my book but me. I haven’t even found it on anyone’s blog. (Yes, I have a google alert. And yes, I know how pathetic that is.) I have a hard time asking people for favors, but here goes:
Please for the love of all things chocolate with buttercream frosting
TALK ABOUT MY BOOK.
If you read it and liked it TELL SOMEBODY! In fact, tell lots of bodies.
If you haven’t read it, READ IT!!!
It’s Christmastime in the city. Books make great gifts. You can even go zero-carbon and give someone an e-book. Better yet, give everyone an e-book.
(BTW, the industry is in mad trouble.
Do your do your friendly neighborhood writer a favor and buy LOTS of books. TKS)
Yes, I know that shameless self-promotion is well, shameless, but subtlety doesn’t seem to be working.
So, as a favor to me let’s drive the google alert people crazy. Twitter it. Facebook it. Blog it. Myspace it. IM it. Invent a new app and App the living hell out of it. If you’re not in the technology groove, tell people in the real world. Tell lots of people in the real world. Tell your dentist, your gyno, your mechanic, your grocery store cashier. Hell, tell your prison pen pal (Hey, they have libraries, as a matter of fact, be sure to tell some librarians. Me love librarians.) You can even tell Elizabeth Hasselbeck. I don’t care. Whatever you do, TALK ABOUT MY BOOK!!!!
Just in case you haven’t bought my book YET (Shame, shame, shame), I’ve linked below. After you read it and discover how fabulous it is I expect to hear from you, IMMEDIATELY!!!
