View Full Version : Setting up Promotional *STUFF*
August 7th, 2011, 01:46 PM
Being the new kid on the block is fun. No, really, it is! lol I have set up my blog... a much easier blog (the first one was ANNOYING & hard to to set up) and now I am trying to find out how to "gift" a free copy on amazon. BashingHead I am thinking of using smashwords also.
So what were your "first days" like? How did you handle all the marketing/promotional issues that always seemed to pop up when you least expected it? Are you still going through it? Let me know~
(and by all means, check out my new blog below~ lol)

Thanks! I appreciate the comment over there too. I am still so new at all of this and, at times, it can be a little overwhelming~ lol But, that's part of the FUN!

Thanks Dominique! (nervously tapping fingers till Sunday evening...) It's gonna be KILLING me to not blog, much less not stare at that screen of comments! lol Especially since this is the first contest I have ever done~

Thanks!.... Now if I can just find that "easy" button I had lying round from Staples... :womancomputer:
I did realize that promotion & marketing (& hintin/begging) would be as difficult as it is. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the hard work, I enjoy it. I am just frustrated that I have had more encouragement from established authors/publish houses/reviewers than my own family/community in general. They are all like this: :shark:
Oh well, that was my vent for the day! lol
