Last night, before I went to bed, I was reading the e-version of La Bruja del Barrio Loco. I often re-read copies of my books a couple of times to make sure the typos are obliterated or minimized. Thus far, I have found one, but last night, I had a nightmare that I found other typos. I woke up really upset, and then, I realized there were no mistakes in the sections I read last night.
Yesterday, I also sent a brief thank you to JA Konrath. He is a successful, self-published writer, and he inspired me to put my work out there. Plus, he gives really great advice to noobs. Anyway, one of the things he was talking about was marketing. And, it looks like I am doing a lot of things right. However, he did suggest that people experiment. That is why I am going to put my newsletters in a few areas in the neighborhood and coffee shops this weekend.
The next big experiment is to do a give-away of Rita vs the Duende and The Awakening (not set on that title because it's overused), Book 3 in La Bruja del Barrio Loco series. I am thinking a two-day deal when people can download the books for free. Also, I have been thinking of rewriting a short and giving it away. I had a concept of making the grandmother mute in "Descarado", which will be in the Antojitos section of my site.
Well, it's going to be another day of a long-assed meeting, and I am still not done revising my courses (hence, all the reviews last night).
Write, write, and market some more. #Resist
