I have a fairly big, somewhat important announcement.
According to my agent, I need a marketing platform to make me and my book(s) that much more appealing to publishers. For that reason, I am working on creating a website for myself.
I’ve also been shamelessly trying to get followers on this blog from my Facebook friends. I could get more people’s attention if I talked about really popular, topical things, but I’m not so good at that. The posts I wrote about 50 Shades of Grey got quite a few hits for obvious reasons, but I don’t like the idea of writing about Justin Bieber’s latest growth spurt or Disney’s latest racism just to try and attract people to my site. So I probably won’t do that.
On the list of things I’m planning on doing is creating a Facebook page for myself or my books. Maybe I’ll get that up and running if I actually get published.
One thing that I absolutely want to do is offer some special deal or giveaway or something for my blog readers. A lot of you have been with me from the very beginning, so I’d like to offer you my thanks in the form of a signed book or something. The problem is I don’t know what will actually be possible once the book gets published. But I promise to try my best to get something going for my blog readers. That’s the best I can offer right now.
Anyway, that’s it. I’ll let you know when the website goes live! Have a hastily drawn comic.
