Actions Last 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)
No. I think I managed five. The news from Breathless Press aside, I notice a trend when it comes to ‘marketing and promo’ activities. I- don’t- like- them. So I need to start smaller and work my way up. We’ll see about that in a tick
~Mail one reviewer/spotlight blogger from the list per day
~Publish ‘Meeting Each Other: The Full Story’ paperback version
See above. ^_^
Activities For This Week
- Add ten to the book reviewers/spotlight spreadsheet over the course of the week (even if they go in the ‘no good right now’ section I need to add them in)
- Mail three reviewer/spotlight blogger over the course of the week
- Decide what to do about the Slippers & Chains series
- Write and set up my Twory idea
I can’t send one promo-type message a day. I don’t now if that sounds defeatist or not, but I can’t. While I acknowledge that I do need to do these things, I can’t put my heart and soul in it the way I do with other things.
In light of that, I’m going to reduce the focus there. I’m going to shift gears and concentrate on my Twory. Something that people can engage with and follow and enjoy over a period of days. This, hopefully, will be far more effective as a marketing tool and also be fun, which is what I want.
Slippers & Chains needs a new home. I won’t know what to do with the ‘Second Base’ beta comments until I figure that out and I won’t know what to do about my ‘Sugar Dust’ cover art either. So I need to start making some plans.
How has your writing week been? As we near the end of the first third of the year, I’m keen to know how you’re all getting on. 🙂
