May 1st

Promoting the Muse #1: my own websites #1--the blog
The first step was to decide on a target for online promotion. To maximise sales it should be the point of sale. But in order to collect traffic data I have made it this blog. Blogger doesn't have a 'sticky post' feature but I put the cover and synopsis on a post dated May 31st, which will keep it at the top.

Novella in a Month #1
I am breaking the novella goal up because I need to finish some short stories this month. It is still the evening of the 30th right now and I am finishing up my previous project (Mason's Story). I will then start on The Swan Prince. So step #1 is open a new file and type in the title.

Mason's Story (was: Here Comes the Sun) has been sent to meet its editorial fate. Novella challenge, here I come.

Self-promo has always been painful for me. I can't wait to see what ideas you have that are maybe a little less like pulling teeth.

At my day-job, a cheap way we promote events is to make flyers and have the local grocery story stuff them in the bags. I wonder if there is an internet equivalent to this for erotica, and if so, what that might be? A sig line?

I am woefully bad at self-promo. So if this works it will be ample evidence that anyone can do it. ;)
