I guess it’s been a good sign that I’ve been so busy writing my novel work in progress and keeping the promo going for Gods of Avalon Road that I’ve forgotten to do a blog post for a while. Anyway, here’s a behind the scenes of what I’ve been up to with spreading the word about my debut novel.
I’ve sent a couple of copies out for review by post, so that could take a while. Sending books snail mail is always a bit nerve-wracking as you never know whether they’ll safely reach their destination or not, but if you send by recorded mail, that will only irk a busy recipient. I was happy to find out that the copies of my book in stock at the local Waterstones had sold out; always news to make an author happy! I’m also waiting to hear back from various outlets too regarding a promotional spotlight – more on that as it happens. As much as I’d love instant replies, much like sending unsolicited manuscripts on submission to publishers in the first place, I’m finding ongoing promotion for a novel is a journey that requires much patience!
