Does everyone know what today is? I do!
Aside from that, it’s also a learning day for me. I’ve had a bunch of those lately. I’ve been reading a lot of books on marketing. I’ve gotten rusty at such things.
Many of the recommendations involve asking people for things.
Ask authors for blurbs!
Ask bloggers and readers to review your books!
Recruit people to be on your book launch team and then ask them to share things on social media, etc!
I’m bad at asking people to do things. I have questionable social skills as it is, and I’m not sure adding the requesting of favors would add bonus points to my charisma rating.
Plus it makes me feel icky. The introvert in me (which is pretty much all of me) is not keen on bothering human beings that are likely otherwise occupied with the business of life. We are all very busy, running around like maniacs, trying to get everything done.
Speaking of getting things done: I am almost done with the cover for the 2nd Desmond book. In fact, I’m going to go work on that right now and hopefully post it by the end of the week.
Now here is a picture of our overcast Indiana spring. I did get to see the sun for like half an hour today so I was really excited.
