Now, that my ‘creating hat’ is off my tossed locks it’s time to put on my marketing/Hype Man hat and attract some attention from you glorious readers: the true holy grail. And since I am not very big on the social media scene (as others are), and I don’t take many pics scantily dressed, I guess its the old fashion way for me. Crap. It’s all about selling yourself, your brand and your writing skillz to anyone who will listen.
Oh, sure, I’m blessed to have my Perfect trilogy in many libraries across the Midwest region, but it’s going to take a hell of a lot more than that to breakthrough the stratosphere, which separates me from being world renowned. Still, I have to tell you, I get majorly stoked each time I see my works being displayed in the hall/lobby next to some of my favorite writers, and one of my books are checked out to a reader!
That is so awesome!!
I get misty-eyed because I poured out my heart and soul into every word, sentence, paragraph and chapter and at this very moment a reader might be receiving what I have to offer to the world.
That’s one reason I write, one reason I persevere and battle though until I finally scribble those two magic words: The End, and close out the file. It’s why I’ll never stop writing or loving to write… well, after I take off my Hype Man hat of course.
Until next time. Hug a writer.
