You Don’t Know Me…Yet

Last week I told you that I needed to start working on ‘the total package’. Getting my name and my book out there in preparation for my release. Now, you may ask how exactly I plan to do that. You are always so curious, my followers!

Well, I have come to the conclusion that I don’t know all the answers to this question. (Yes, I can admit to not knowing everything 😉 ).

So, in much the same fashion I have looked for experts to help me along the way in this self-pub process, I have decided to work with a PR person to help me form a plan. And you know how I am about plans…

So, you guessed it, I went searching for someone to work with. By now, you should understand the drill…

  1. I asked other authors
  2. I did research and then I did more research
  3. I narrowed down my list to two choices
  4. I spoke to them (well I guess I interviewed them, if the truth be told)

And then I fell into a quandary…because I liked them both for very different reasons. And so I stewed about it. I am all about stewing…ask anyone who knows me. How could I make a decision on WHO to work with?

And I stewed some more. Until a good friend and fellow writer said, in her practical, no-nonsense way, “Why do you have to work with just one?”

And the knots in my stomach loosened. The solution was so obvious that I had missed it. So I am working with both of them. And NO I am not weaving gold in my basement on my spinning wheel to pay for this…each one is doing a portion of my plan playing to their strengths. Because that is what this business is all about – playing to our strengths and looking to others to help us succeed.

Are you still with me? Well tighten your seatbelt, cause we’re not done…yet!

  1. Great post as always. You’re putting a lot of intense thought and work into making your debut novel a stunning success. I’ll do what I can to help.

  2. I’ve learned so much from your posts. I can’t believe that its been almost a year since Nationals and your Golden Heart win. What a great night! Thanks again for taking us on your journey to self-pub. Can’t wait to read Mind Sweeper. Have a awesome time in San Antonio. Bring me back a cowboy!

    1. Dyanne – Thanks! It is hard to believe it has been a year since GH. Wow, what a journey. I can’t wait for you to read Mind Sweeper and I will tell you all about San Antonio when I get back. Now, if I am lucky enough to lasso a cowboy, he will be staying with me!
