Self-Promotion Is Not A Dirty Word
Guess what I'm doing today? Talking about one of my favorite subjects...promotion for romance writers! I'll be speaking at the NECRWA meeting at Brandeis University at 1:00. (Unfortunately, the Chippendale's dancers cancelled, but hopefully there should be chocolate.)
Here are a few tips on self-promotion to get us started...
1.) Don't post naked photos of yourself on your website. Unless you look like Bo Derek. And even then it's probably not a good idea.
2.) Including 5-star review snippets from your mother is ineffective as a promotional tool.
3.) Choose appropriate sites for your blog tour. Doing an interview on "Flyfishing For Big Boys" is most likely a waste of time and won't increase book sales. Although you never know.
Looking forward to chatting with everyone!
See you soon,
