“What should I blog about tomorrow?” I asked Proman (short for project manager and not coincidentally, my husband.) “I’ve spent the past week working on my BookBub ad for From Glowing Embers. Nobody wants to hear about promoting a novel.”
“Of course they do,” he said. And whether he’s right or wrong, you’re about to.
First let’s spiral back in time. There I was a newbie author, not just damp behind the ears but sopping, wringing wet. I thought writing a book would be entertaining. Excruciating months passed, and as it turned out, lots of those months were not entertaining for me or the people who knew me. But I wrote and I wrote and eventually I had something resembling a novel. Lady Fortune knocked at my door, and almost without trying, I found an agent who liked my work, and I had my first sale.
