Have you ever noticed how powerful word-of-mouth is? It might take some time, but if the offering is great enough, word-of-mouth will spread it like a wild fire. For example, I’m teaching swim lessons this summer. I hadn’t planned on it. But after helping a few families take their children from non-swimmers to downright fishes last summer, people hadn’t stopped approaching me about teaching their children this summer. Good thing I love to teach swimming.
It gives me hope I will be able to grow my status as an unknown author into a recognizable name, with clout and a loyal audience. It comes down to my product. Is my debt novel “Worth?” good enough? I truly believe it’s something special, but only time will tell if the audience agrees. This is where my hands are tied—my fate is given to others. It comes down to you. I can post and talk until my fingers are numb and my voice is gone, it won’t mean much if you don’t help me. When “Worth?” comes out in November, get it, read it. And if you love it? For heaven’s sake don’t keep it a secret! Tell everyone you know.
