Instead of writing, which I should be doing, I am promoting. Why? Because I feel the need to get my name out there. Every good author with the exception of a limited few, had to start at the bottom.
When do I find time to write? In between jumping from one group to another. I steal precious moments to jot down a few lines on the keyboard, before I head off to another site that requires my attention.
You'd think that with the amount of time I spend on certain sites, spreading my name, someone would recognize me already. But, oh no. It's not that simple, you see. I'm a specialized writer, catering to the lesbian community and as such, I most first win their trust. It couldn't have been as simple as intriguing men to purchase my f/f erotica books...no.
We all know that men have that "watching two girls" fantasy. Don't lie, my brother and cousin, both admitted it. LOL
I have promoted myself half to death and yet, continue to make small strides forward, but I'm not giving up. Seriously, the amount of time I spend on promoting is now bordering on insane.
Personally, I have a twitter account, Facebook, RomanceWiki, Goodreads, and a linked-in account. Oh, and I just joined forces with Erotic Network. Not bad considering.
Now's the fun part. For my writing I have a Naughty Little Vamp twitter, blogger and facebook account.
For promoting within the lesbian community I have a new blog, Sheboi and a blogger, twitter, and facebook account to go with it. Not to mention, that you can find me at Butch-Femme, Lesbian Flirts, Gays.com and half a dozen more that I've forgotten the names to.
I counted at least 15 places, 16 if we include Romance Books "R" Us.
I'm tired. Someone wanna do the promoting for me? Cheap?
