So I had another Aha! moment yesterday after much headache and frustration. And some heartbreak as well.
I have just recently added two of my books to Barnes & Noble for sale, and I want to get the word out. So I jump over to my website and add the buttons. I make sure they work and they do! So far so good, right? Ok, that was good I will give that much.
So then I also add a survey at the bottom of sneak peeks and the first 7 chapters of "The House" the new one I am currently working on. I am so excited about it...I just can't stand it. I just want to hear what people think about it...will it be a wash or will it be a rave?
So now I am sure that I have it done, how to get the word out? WHAM! It hits me, go post it all on Facebook and let my friends help me spread the word. I get all kinds of excited and that is what I do, but that isn't quite the end result.
I envisioned copious amounts of shares going on, that worst case scenario I would only have a dozen or so people sharing, but that is start, right? Sure, right...
I posted to my Facebook page and waited for my friends to share the posts...I waited all day. I had two shares. One from my bestie and one from my fiance (because I asked him to on my way walking past him!), that was it. I heard crickets literally from my laptop. *deep sigh* It appears the way FB is set up, unless your peeps on online at the moment or go check your wall, there is a good chance they won't see it.
So today, I was determined to find a way to get the word out. My bread and butter (and my dogs food) depends on me making just a little extra money a month, so I need to make sure I get the word out! I am proud of my work, I want to show it off as well!! SOoooooooooooooo, this morning I post again on Facebroke (not at all happy with that right now!), and low and behold I had some shares! Now I am tickled but not quite satisfied.
What to do, what to do? BOOK CLUBS! So onto G+ I go to spread the word. I am waiting for a response, but maybe, just maybe this might be a way to go.
Oh, and if anybody stumbles upon this, check out my website at Nan Carder Sneak Peeks...I know I am just shameless...LOL
