I know I've been slack with blogging about the MJ gig, but I promise you'll hear all about it by the weekend. I'm just trying to sort out in what order to tell you about piranhas, the Onion man and a drunken Scot. Yes, you did read me right ;) They will all feature, but not necessarily in that order...
There's so many exciting things coming up on the website so keep checking back! Apparently I should have started marketing myself 3 years before I wrote my debut. WHOOPS! Who knew, eh? I can see how that would have been mighty useful. It takes many hours to maintain your website and do the social networking thing on a daily basis when all you want to do is write and work on your next big project. I love it because it's new territory for me, but I seriously need more hours. The way I tackle it at the moment is to set myself a target of 1 marketing thing per day, even if it's just an idea. If I'm thinking and reading about publishing, that still counts. Like I said yesterday, Twitter is awesome for this. You get headline news to dip into, but never swamped with information. I also enjoy the daily writing prompts!
BUT BUT BUT BUT
At some point (very soon) I will have to get down to some serious "in the zone" writing and plotting - not just for Tainted, but for the overall marketing strategy - and I'm really looking forward to that.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
