To market, to market, to buy…. A book. That’s what I’d like to hear from readers. They strolled through their favorite bookstore, or scrolled down Amazon Kindle pages and found a book that sounded interesting and purchased it. Bottom line=they get enjoyment and authors get a royalty.
IF ONLY it were that easy today!
I am not a marketing guru. Half of the conversations I’ve been in concerning this subject turned me into a bobblehead: I smile, nod and pretend to understand.
What happened to word of mouth? Oh wait, I suppose it’s jumped ship to FB and tweets. Unlike Ellen at the Oscars, I’m afraid a selfie of me and my book covers will not shut down a Twitter feed. And I betcha my fellow authors on this blog feel the same way.
Therefore, WE DEPEND ON YOU READERS to get the word out! Please post our links to your Facebook page or tweet about us. And post a review on Amazon. Don’t gut our work or tell the whole story, but please be interactive in this techno-society.
Because this bobblehead needs you.
10-4, good buddy.
Over and out.
I’m off to program my VCR.
