A perfect segue to my blog post on marketing yesterday…
Today Women’s Memoirs has posted my answers to their questions about:
MEMOIR, BLOGGING AND PLATFORM BUILDING Marketing and Promotion on the Internet.
They say, “As many of you well know, at Women’s Memoirs we are as interested in the marketing efforts that go into the promotion of a new memoir as we are in the actual writing. After all, in most cases, writing the book is only half the job. We need to get our work into the hands of readers. We need a platform to which we can draw potential readers and a variety of tactics for making our presence known.”
And they are so right. I’m finding the marketing of the book as much work or even more work than the writing.
I am so grateful to Kendra Bonnet and Matilda Butler for inviting to post on their wonderful Women’s Memoir site today about my book marketing experience so far and on June 22 when I answered questions about how writing a memoir helped me heal after my son Paul’s suicide in 1999.
Kendra and Matilda have been most generous and caring with my story. Thank you so much to you both!
And another big thank you to Robyn Chausse and Jodi Webb at WOW Women on Writing for arranging my amazing blog tour.
