Desperately seeking another me…No really. Anyone want to check out some of these sites for me?

The list of blogs I need to read and get the book out to grows and the neverending task of self promotion is so overwhelming. I know other authors who would never admit that (‘Never let them see you sweat, Gen!’) but I ain’t a feared of saying … oooohh this is why people get agents. LOL Between writing, editing, promoting, house projects, community events and parenting it’s amazing my bitch-o-meter is only at a dull purr lately. (Yes, seriously, this is me at low key.)

In other news, “First I Love You” is now available FREE to all Libraries from my distributer Smashwords. Yippee! I LOVE libraries! Super happy to support cyber-lending!

Have a happy hump day, fellow humans!

Make it a habit to submit your book to at least 2-3 websites a day.  Don’t forget to post links to them on Google+, Twitter, FB, Tumblr, StumpleUpon, LinkedIn, Chime.in, Pinterest … whatever social media you are signed up.  In one month you will have your book on all of these listed sites and you will see a difference in sales:

  1. Oops, I’ve already submitted a request to my library using the info on Amazon. When I check out kindle books I get directed to Amazon. Anyhows, I haven’t received the we don’t want this book email so, I think they’ll get it. When they do you should set up an interview with Greg’s tv station. I’m sure they can do some sort of Skype thing. I reminded him about it yesterday and this morning he woke me up asking for the title again. So, he’s talking it up at the tv station already. What else can I do?

  2. Fantastic! Greg sent me an inbox and I will follow up. A TV interview would be HUGE!Right now I need a feel for what sites to send the book to for reviews. If it’s one that needs a direct submission from me I will get on that if it’s one like The Reader’s Nook then it requires a fan like you submitting the book as a recommended read. That helps IMMENSELY! I am also thinking of doing a book discussion at my library. Since I can’t do a book signing with a digital release I can do a round table (bring your tablet or laptop, all who aprticipate get a free copy). If this takes off I can do more, cyberly speaking.
