Promoting & Opening Hooks

So, its quite apparent to me, that I lack what it takes to properly promote my book – and myself. I’ve been given a handfull of sites, provided by the lovely Gayle Eden and I either can’t navigate them or lack the knowledge to do what I need to, once I find what I’m looking for. Most of the sites I just sit and stare at – lost as to what to do.

I have a new book out and yet, only a handfull of people know about it. I thought the hard part was actually editing the darn thing! lol I’m finding this part in the entire process to be the most challenging. Putting yourself ‘out there’ is almost impossible when you’re clueless as to what youre doing. I’v spent more time trying to get people to ’see’ my book than I have writing in the past few weeks and some how, that just seems wrong. My poor characters will think I’ve abandended them.

I did open the vamp novel this morning. Of course, instead of writing more – I was tweaking what I already have. I wasn’t happy with the opening hook after re-reading it. Its much better now – or I think it is. I feel like I’ve been writing this story forever – yet, I have nothing done. The month I spent editing ‘Heaven’ was a major factor there, but if I don’t get back in the swing soon – I’m afraid the story will be lost. Too much time away from my characters and I lose them for some reason. Its so hard for me to get back into the story after a long absense. At any rate – enough playing with the blog. I have real work to do.
