I believed, foolishly, that this achievement was 9/10’s of the job done.
I was wrong. It is the first step.
I have received much help, thanks to all who have offered advice and support to me. And I have learnt that in today’s world. a writer has to become a Jack-of-all-trades. The greatest hurdle is Marketing and in this I thank Emu Ink.ie and Laurence O’Bryan, the founder of BooksGoSocial.com
But I still have to spend time, marketing the book. I have also been told that book reviews are gold to writers. Hence the Giveaways and the pleading or requests for reviews on Goodreads and Amazon etc.
I have given away 15 books, in the hope reviews will result. But I am curious as to how other children’s writers find book reviews. So any help, or advice will definitely be appreciated by me.
Blogging delights me and writing is a passion. I consider myself lucky if one or two people read a post and am amazed if the stats alert me that a post is doing well and 15 + readers have been on my site.
Life is funny isn’t it, some of us dream of winning the lottery but bloggers simply dream of being acknowledged and read.
