My Kryptonite

My Kryptonite

Marketing is the BANE of my existence. I’m genuinely TERRIBLE at it. I’ve always been a helper. Someone needs sharing, I share. Someone needs help with promoting their book, I do what I can to get it done. When it comes to asking for those favors, I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’m always trying to do everything myself so that, if and/or when I succeed, I can say I did it on my own.

But that’s not how this game works.

That saying “It takes a village”? Yeah…. It applies to a WHOLE lot more than raising children.

I’ve finally got a small street team going, so they pimp me out when and where they can, but I REALLY need to get better about doing it myself. Books aren’t the only thing you sell as an author, come to find out. People are buying YOU as well.

I’m working on getting a website up (finally) so that Facebook and Twitter aren’t my only marketing platforms, so that’s a bonus, but I also need to use every tool I have in my arsenal. Which happens to include this blog. Time to kiss the pride goodbye and get myself and my books out there.

What made me realize this change needed to be made? Well, people started asking me where my books are available… That genuinely shocked me, believe it or not. I thought I was doing a halfway decent job of making that information available.

Apparently, I was wrong, so here it is! A one-stop-shop of sorts!

    ❤ So glad you said the best you. I hate when authors pretend to be someone they aren't.
