The Struggle of Publicity October 13, 2007

Posted by shannonmuir in Advice, marketing.

Selling a piece of writing does not end with acceptance from the publisher.  A writer needs to work hard to let people know the work is out there, and that’s easier said than done.  Books prove to be even more a challenge than articles, as I’ve learned firsthand with my own first book being published.  Competition for book signing space, panel appearances, print or radio interviews, and podcasts is fierce!  Keep knocking on doors in hopes that an opening shows itself somewhere, because if you stop doing so that’s a guarantee nothing will happen.  It could very well be someone else’s last minute cancellation that gives a much needed big break!
