I counted on a lot of things when I decided to self-publish. I was sure it would be hard work, that my workdays would be long, and that I was making the right choice. What I didn’t realize was how much I would enjoy the marketing. It has been really fun to learn more about social media, to go into new bookstores, and to meet new people.
Sure, I used Facebook, had a blog, and was a veteran of many discussion boards, mostly about horses. But I knew jack squat about Twitter, and I became aware of such things as Twitter parties and blog hops.
Today, I joined a blog hop!
For those of you who are as clueless as I was, this is basically a list links to the blogs of new authors so that readers can hop from blog to blog and discover us lesser-known writers and our books. Pretty cool idea, huh?
So welcome blog hoppers! Check out my series of tips for novel writing under the Writing Fear Free tab and also take a look at my new book Charlotte Collins, a continuation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, which will be released September 1.
Oh, and there’s a link to pre-order Charlotte right over there –>
