Promoting Yourself

It's been a busy time here as I promote my book and myself.  So far I've:
  • Posted announcements to Digg, Delicious, Buzz, and Technorati.
  • Posted announcements in Facebook and Goodreads
  • Sent out a press release
  • Emailed friends and relatives
  • Added links to the book here, on my blog, and other sites I have accounts
  • Adjusted my email signature to include a link to my book
I'm also in the middle of answering some interview quotes.  Hope to get some reviews of the book in place soon.  I've also got one or two other ideas to work through.

The nice thing about Smashwords is they provide a marketing guide to help me reach others.  As part of that effort, they suggest I include the following presentation.

Hope you like it.

These are all things you may want to do too if you need to promote your work. Food for thought.

Good luck with your promotion! Have you thought of doing a blog tour or giving away free copies for reviews? Those two things worked out really great for me.

Yes, a blog tour is on the list. Need to find folks willing to participate.

I may or may not give away free copies. I will be offering the book at a discounted price in the December.
