For Want of a Blog ...

So, I'm rooting around the 'net, looking for book promotion ideas, and I stumble onto one: research what other authors in "your strata" are doing to promote themselves. Good, good, but what is meant by "authors in your strata" ... does that mean other authors who have no sales ... why would I want to research their marketing approach ... it's probably the same as mine?  No, it must mean "authors who are self-published in my genre" ... so I started looking around and found a few. I sent them emails asking for info on what they've done to promote their books ... and being authors, they were very friendly and helpful. One idea that floated up was to post stuff on blogs ... which I thought was good ... but I've not been very successful finding blogs that are interesting or would be interested in my thoughts.  I'll keep looking ...

The silence is deafening.

Checking in on the old blog ... just in case I snared an unsuspecting surfer ... so far they've all managed to avoid this particular Internet back alley ... which, I have to admit is probably a good thing for them ... having roamed a few dark and dank streets myself.

Annnnnywaaay, I've been noodling on my next project ...  even though I haven't had any action on my first two, a sane person might be questioning why I'd bother ... and I don't really have a good answer, other than it is what I do. So what's next? Ahhh, stick around for the next three years and you'll find out!

Internet Wasteland

Just back from a two week stay in AZ with an old bandmate of mine (yep, I used to make a da music ... and still do a little). I was hoping that there might have been a little action on my blog or Facebook page, but alas, all is quite on the social networking front. Regardless, I'll will continue to wander in the Internet wilderness for a while yet ... at least as long as the water and food hold out.  Besides, the solitude allows for some creative contemplation.
