I now understand what they’re talking about. The hard part is marketing and finding people who believe in your story. You need momentum and support. This is the first in a two-part series on momentum and support.
I’m quickly learning that bloggers are a great source of momentum (and honesty).
I have a few blog events on the horizon. I’m excited about the publicity, but I’m more excited about the response. Forget the pen wielding, surly editor at the publishing house - bloggers are driving the book market. If you’re looking for the next NYT bestseller, follow blogs.
They’re investing their reputation in the blogs and building communities of like-minded fans. Which means I’ll get a community vibe on Fat Assassins.
Frishawn is reading/reviewing Fat Assassins for her blog: http://wtfareyoureading.blogspot.com/ I hope I don’t crash the site as I sit nervously hitting refresh every 10 minutes awaiting the official blog review.
Beware the squirrels!
