"The successful person has the habit of doing the things failures don't like to do. They don't like doing them either necessarily. But their disliking is subordinated to the strength of their purpose." ~ Napoleon Hill
I am so glad to get to Friday, this week...somehow, January became a crazy month. Signed my contract with Samhain, yesterday, though, and will put it into the mail today - exciting! (Even though they made some changes to it...notably that you have to sell more copies to make $$...but it wasn't like One Night in Boston was rocking the charts, so I didn't have a huge problem with the changes. Anyway...)
Today's Marianne's birthday - go over and wish her a happy one!
I'm off to my local RWA chapter meeting tomorrow, and have lots to do, promo-wise, between now and the end of the month, so I'll be busy reading and writing and marketing (what else is new?). During my telephone interview the other day, I told the woman about what an effort constant self-promotion is, and that it's probably the one thing I wish I knew before I first published. Not that it would have changed my desire to be published - I just would have been more prepared.
For any of you writers out there, how challenging (or frustrating) do you find marketing yourself? I've gotten better, I think, and I know what seems to work for me and what I feel most comfortable doing...and what I don't. Still, it's a never-ending process, isn't it?
At least until I land an interview spot on Oprah...LOL
