I’m taking part in a round-robin book blog tour soon. It’s my first participation in one. I am going to be prepping my page tonight for Penumbra.
I have a really hard time promoting myself. I don’t want to “bother” people. I don’t like to talk myself up that much because I don’t want to come across as arrogant or rude. I have friends who have read Penumbra and enjoyed it, and I haven’t hounded them yet to write reviews on Amazon and Goodreads because I figure if they really wanted to, they would. I don’t post the link to buy Penumbra as frequently as I should because I figure people will see it if they want it.
But I need to get over my fear of annoying people. I need to believe in myself so others can believe in my art and writing. If I can’t afford to hire a publicist, I need to learn to be my own. Things to work on.
Fellow indie authors, what do you like to include on book blog tours?
