Marketing is not optional

I haven’t been able to write – really write – lately, because of my marketing efforts.

Since this chore falls on the authors nowadays, I think it’s perhaps to slow us down on publishing.

It seems without marketing and posting a blog, and keeping up with social networking, and direct contact at festivals and workshops, etc, the world tends to forget about little ol’ me and my books.

I’m learning how to maintain my own website. I’m trying to be more consistent writing on this blog. I’m also learning I must communicate on Facebook, Twitter, GoodReads, and directly through writer networks.

Whew! When can I get back to writing again?

I know marketing is not mandatory, but if I want to connect with the public (and sell a few books) it is not optional.

If you have any pointers or comments to help me, please, please, please let me know.
