No. Before you ask, I still haven’t hit ‘publish’ since this morning’s post. But I’m gearing up to it. I have my CreateSpace account open if that counts. I can see the dashboard. :-p
Actions Last Week
~Send newsletter for this month
Sorted. It was a fun one to send too. I gave away another freebie and furthered the Raven’s Diary: The New Pet story. Remember, if you want to be in with a chance to enjoy either of those things, you need to sign up! Do it using the link above.
~Devise marketing plan that can be run through Twitter since that is primary means of doing so these days
I’ve kinda known this for a while, but I’m going to write a Twory. This is an idea totally nicked from DSB‘s friends over at Caladria, so if you want to know what it’s about you really should check out their Twitter. It’s a laugh riot, believe me. And I hope I can get similar results with something so fundamentally fun to do.
~Create spreadsheet to record book reviewers contacted including when, where etc, etc
Yep. I’ve even started filling it in. I’m doing one week of adding at least five sites per day, then next week I’ll . . . well I’ll tell you about that in the actions.
~Order new ‘MEO:TFS’ proof
Ordered and received (I asked for mega speedy delivery this time). Yes, as I mentioned this morning, it’s ready. I just need to do the deed. o.O
Activities For This Week
- Add five entries to the book reviewers/spotlight spreadsheet per day (even if they go in the ‘no good right now’ section I need to add them in)
- Mail one reviewer/spotlight blogger from the list per day
- Publish ‘Meeting Each Other: The Full Story’ paperback version
I’ve nearly completed all my goals for the month. I’m in a good position.
I also want to test how it feels sending one promo-type message a day. It’s not too much to handle at once, so I shouldn’t get overwhelmed, but it does get the message out slowly, slowly. That’s what I want.
Also, the Twory is another way to get eyes turned in my direction, while being simultaneously entertaining for readers and fun for me. That’s what promotion should be, if you ask me. Otherwise it’s just spam.
We’ll see. It’s all I can do.
