If you are considering publishing (traditionally or self), I urge you to read this book! I wish I had read it sooner. Fortunately, my first two books are not due to be released until June 1st and while I have been working on my social media sites, I have not "gotten the word out" about their existence yet...THANK GOODNESS...I have much work to do!
Stay tuned for pictures from my VERY FIRST marketing focus group meeting at the end of the month. I have assembled a group of six very trusted literacy colleagues to develop my BRAND phrase and logo! In the meantime....I have HOMEWORK to get done!! I have tasked myself with coming up with 10-30 "value statements" about who I am as a professional that answers the questions others subconsciously ask when deciding whether or not to pull out the credit card - "Will this book help me, entertain me, and be worth the investment?" and "Why should I believe/value/trust what you have written?". Fingers crossed something telling and clever will spring to the surface across my "value statements"! I am counting on my marketing focus group to shine a bright light on my authorship value so I can get my social media affairs in order pre-release date!!
