Well, I did it. I stopped making excuses about stepping up to the next level. “I’ll start marketing after the third book” or “I just don’t have time to contact reviewers” were just a couple of thoughts that swirled around in my mind. But guess what? You have to make time. So that’s exactly what I did. I spent over fourteen hours checking out blogs and contacting reviewers. I am happy to report that a handful have agreed to read my book and review it on their blog, amazon and most likely Goodreads. One person read it right away and already posted her review on both amazon and Goodreads. I also have a stack of paperback copies ready to mail out. I will MAKE THE TIME to send them out tomorrow during my lunch break. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping they enjoy my novel and their reviews will help spread the word about my trilogy. I even went on animoto.com and made two new book trailers. After all, nobody else is going to market my book for me.
