Sorry for the silence. Been rather busy. Today, I’ve finished my acknowledgements and dedication for my new novel Seeking The Dark. The publisher, Darkstroke has signed off on it now so the novel is seen as completed. Hopefully, we have caught any error or typos this time, but I’m guessing some will have sneaked through. Time to start thinking long and hard about marketing. Unlike at the launch of Stone Angels, I’m more prepared this time.
The other day I had an email drop into my inbox from a promotional site, Readfreely. I had used them once before and they were doing a special offer. So I thought I would give them a go and promote Stone Angels. I’m hoping to drum up more interest in my work before the launch of Seeking The Dark. The promotion was to cover the weekend and to be included in a newsletter though the company seems to be based in Britain their main market is in America.
At the moment I don’t see any improvement on my sales, but I shall wait and see how the ranking on my Amazon page looks tomorrow. Hopefully by June when a huge amount of the population of Britain will have been vaccinated we will be able to start promoting our work by meeting and talking to others. If the local independent bookshops have survived I shall get in contact with them to see if they would be interested in copies of both my books.
I’m really hoping by October the Whitby Goth Festival is back. It would be great to be able to hand out business cards again and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of the time spent in Whitby, North Yorkshire.
Tomorrow I’m back working on a short story and then it’s back to writing a new Granny Wenlock story.
Catch up with you all very soon.
