Sunday already! Where has the weekend - never mind the week - gone?
I'm 20,000 words into my new novel, and trying to kickstart the promotion machine for 24 Hours: London. It definitely needs to be revved up a gear, but I'm finding it all slightly embarrassing. I'm learning it's hard to promote yourself (or your products). I used to work in PR, so I should find it easy. I had no problem ringing up the media regarding gigabit ethernet or semiconductors (really exciting stuff). So why do I find this difficult?
I need to get over myself and my (relatively false) modesty - because I do think it's a good book and I am proud of it! - and spread the word.
But if anyone out there has tips on how to promote your book without the cringe factor, I'd love to hear them!
