For my fellow writers out there in the wires. I didn’t plan for this, but so far – it’s worked quite well.
Getting people to buy the book is half the battle. Getting reviews is another hurdle. I’ll let you know how that goes when I get my second one.
But the best thing I’ve found for actually selling the thing is as follows: “I’m quite rude. To be fair, I don’t think you’d like the book. Or if you do, you might have to question how you feel about me.”
I was deadly serious, but the intrigue has worked wonders.
And I have come to learn something about myself: Apparently, I’m no ruder in written form than I am in real life.
This came from a friend. Honestly, I was shocked. I’ve been warning people about my book when, seemingly, I should have just warned them about me.
