Writing? Sure! Promotion? Well, hmm.
I love to write. Wrote my first dog story when I was eight and have scarcely stopped since. It's because of all my journaling through the decades that I can now in my 70s write memoirs telling stories from long ago, some funny, some tragic, some romantic, some adventurous.
Promotion has never been my strong suit. Of the eight or ten books I've written and self-published, the most successful one was about llamas, back in the 1980s when llamas were popular and often profitable. People loved my book but week after week I would postpone tasks like making phone calls to book distributors. That was before email, which admittedly has made promotion easier.
So a couple of years ago I started my series of memoirs and I've got the first two up on Amazon. Have got the third one almost finished. My excuse to not promote the first two until the third one is done isn't going to hold water much longer. My reasoning was that the third one will interest more people and I do think that is true, but I confess that it was less reasoning than procrastination.
As I have also written websites, I wandered into WA about two months ago. I've learned things, I've shared things, and I've been inspired. And now I ask for your advice about doing things you don't want to do! Any tips? Not about how to promote books (I have a to-do list all ready) but about motivating yourself?
