So, my book has been live on Amazon and Kindle for almost 2 weeks. I guess I never thought how hard it would be to market myself. Not that I started this project to get rich, but, let’s be real here. I would not turn down a million sales or anything like that. Twitter hashtags, Facebook pages, blogging…. I thought I was pretty tech savvy, but now I feel a little less like I know what I am doing.
I thought it would be simple, post a few links and throw some hashtags that I saw others use and the traffic would flow to here and my face book author page, generating sales and exposure. So far, I have garnered a single review on Goodreads, a 3 star rating with no comments. I even emailed the person, asking them for any sort of feedback with no response. I don’t know what to think of that but I am not discouraged. My goal was to hold a copy of a printed book in my hands with my name on it. My own little piece of literary history, albeit at this time a relatively unknown piece. That is ok in my opinion. I can look at my son and say, “If you ever have a dream, go for it. Even if it takes a decade or more or your entire life. Never give up on your dream. You can accomplish anything.”
