Two years ago when I hit upload on Create Space, I didn’t know what to expect.  I was scared to death but I was also excited to know my dream of being a published author had finally come true.  It wasn’t as I imagined – romance author, but it was about my second love – book promotion. This has been amazing two year journey.  I’ve learned so much about me, my writing and promotion.  I
Today’s Promotion Fear – My Books Aren’t Selling Like Hers This fear will stop you in your tracks quickly.  You haven’t made the best seller’s list like another author.  She’s on FB talking about all her new readers.  She’s signing at all the hottest conferences. You want to crawl in a hole and never come out.  Don’t do it. You are not her and your book isn’t hers either.  Each writer has their own path.

Promotion Fear – I Can’t Toot My Own Horn A lot of writers have a hard time tooting their own horn.  I will be honest and say I fall into this category.  I can promote other people’s book with no problem.  I love raving about other books, I’ve been doing it for years. You would think when it came to my own book, I wouldn’t have a problem.  I can only speak for myself, but
Today’s Promotion Fear –  I’m Afraid To Try New Platforms. It’s so easy to stay in places we feel comfortable with.  You love FB, you know how to work FB and you enjoy talking to your followers. What if your followers aren’t your reading audience? Is time to step out of your comfort zone and try a new platform.  That can be very scary and sometimes time consuming.  I promise you it’s so worth it.
Today’s Promotion Fear – People Will Ignore My Promotion – Crickets Sometimes this fear is real, you post a promotion and you get crickets.  No one buys anything, not one likes it or shares it. You have to realize that’s the promotion game.  It’s nothing personal and I wish I can say this fear goes away, but it will always be there when you share promotion. My best advice is to continue sharing.  Most times
This month I will be featuring a new series – Becoming A Social Butterfly.  It’s all about moving into the second stage of promotion – The Learning Cocoon.  Each post will be about getting ready to promote. Many writers and business owners don’t get ready to promote.  They jump right in and before they realize it, they are stuck. My hope for this series is to help you get ready so you don’t get stuck
