On the Publicity Front

In the past few months since publication, I have been somewhat quiet about promoting my work, and in my boss’s words, it felt like I was just going to “put it out there and let it take on a life of its own” – well, it’s not quite like that.

While I have not actively promoted the work, I am not shy about it, nor am I ashamed of it. The quietness is largely contextual. You see, while at Church, I hold a voluntary office and promoting “my own work” seems inappropriate. At work, I feel I don’t really want to make a big deal of it (I pipe up about other things enough as it is!!). And I spend most of my waking hours in these two contexts.

In recent times, I have submitted ads through BookPal Australia’s promotion and marketing offers to major bookstores, and have dropped postcards to my local Gloria Jeans store, and have made contact with my local library and my own High School to let them know what I’ve been up to. I confess it feels slow, given that I only submitted my “update” to my High School Old Girls’ Union newsletter several months after initial publication, but these were in the works.

Still over all of this, really is my belief that God will spotlight ways I can put the news out there without resorting to begging. And where all this ends up is really still not my call.

Either way, till next time!
