It’s done. I sent my RV book out for review at Baico Publishing in Ottawa. It is the first step in the publishing process. Until I hear from them I don’t want to look at the manuscript.
At my computer I play games. I delete accumulated email. I check out RV sites. What I am really doing is procrastinating.
After the year of revising and revising I feel completely lost. What do I do now? The obvious answer is to work on my media presence.
To this end I took a course ‘ The most Valuable book marketing help you can get’ from Doris-Maria Hellmann at 111publishing.com which was excellent. I got overloaded with information and am ready to get going. My big problem is how. According to the course I need over the next year to get followers. I must at the least get, Goggle+ 2,000, Twitter 2,000, Goodread, 1000.
For some people this is easy. I search for reader, reviewers, traveller, RV, and don’t know which to choose. I am slowly losing my mind.
I must also blog twice a week, write articles for newspapers and magazine so that my names get noticed, and twitter at least once a day.
At the moment, I have no clue on what I will blog about. Should it be about my book? What I will do next in my marketing quest? They say don’t blog about yourself all the time. Maybe I should write on why it took 3 weeks to get our shower stall re-tiled.
I could take the easy way out and post from the Book.
For the moment, I think I’ll get myself a glass of wine. And think about it
