Okay, I was actually very productive yesterday. I just fell asleep before I could write about it here.
I sent some queries and finalized my business card design (which is actually going to be indistinguishable from the sticker design). I also began taking first pages from Mutt and posting them everywhere in the world. (“Everywhere in the world” mostly means cafe bulletin boards and the fronts of free newspaper dispensers.)
(As you can see in the corner of the frame, I’m still slogging through A Dance with Dragons, which I hope to be done with in about a week. I took a reading speed test today that put my comfortable speed on par with a 7th-grader’s. Hence my love for smaller books.)
I’m still waiting to see sales pick up even a little bit as the result of my daily promotion push, but it’s early in the game. It may be that the book continues to sell at the same (very slow) rate for months, but I’m hoping I’ll see a tipping point as these different tactics come to fruition. I’ve gotten positive replies from some wonderful bloggers and should have some new reviews of Mutt to share very soon.
Also, I get sleepy in the early day recently. I think I’m becoming an old person.
