Hmm, she thought. How am I going to promote my book?
In addition to my constant perplexity about promoting my book, I came upon a writing issue that is not resolved! In writing my short story Horarium for Wattpad, I wanted to write someone’s inner dialogue and realized I wasn’t sure how to do that. Neither is the writing world, it seems. You can choose to put quotes in or you can write in italics. But nobody has convinced me that either way is the right way.
Here is a link about it: http://theeditorsblog.net/2012/02/28/inner-dialogue-writing-character-thoughts/
I chose for myself. What do you think?
Also, I found a great link about book promotion from an author who feels pretty much the same way I do about book promotion. http://dreamnotion.zhollis.com/2011/10/25/how-to-find-readers-for-your-novel-actual-steps-honest-answer She has a timeline of her book there that I really appreciate seeing. She also found the best promotion was the free material she offered!
I’ve been trying to figure out what it is about Sunday that makes it such a light blogging views day. I could hope that all of you Saints are spending the whole day at church, but that probably isn’t it.
Friday is by far my best views day. Whatever I post will get more views. Saturday is pretty good too. But Sunday you’re all tired of being online or raiding Heroic Valonia or something.
Do you read more blogs on Friday and skip it altogether on Sunday? Why?
My book is up on http://www.99-cent-network.com/www.99-cent-Network.com/New_This_Week.html ! My $45 didn’t go to waste YAAAYYY!! They gave no feedback about my (probably flubbed) sign-up so I was feeling worried.
Also it’s listed here https://sites.google.com/site/dvwbooksorg/vampire (which was free).
On March 31st I had 10 Kindle book sales!!!! I know! That is twice as many as during my virtual launch party. I have to credit http://bestebookreaderlovers.com/ and DVW for that one because they both went live on that day. I wonder which got me more buys? Is there a way to tell? Best Ebook Reader Lovers looks like a winner because I haven’t had any new sales since then (Unless KDP has a delay reporting sales).
