Getting the Message Across

I post to lots of other groups. Here you can also post blurbs and/or extracts. I am not sure how useful it is. There are so many others doing the same thing. Local newspapers are useful if you can get them to put something in about you. Anyone who contacts me via my website I put in my contact list and send out a bulletin when anything is happening. If you can give a talk to a group it does mean you might sell some books, always make sure you have some books with you to sell!

It is very difficult these days to promote yourself but you have to keep at it...no good being a shrinking violet these days, although that would, I confess, be my preferred option.


  1. I agree, Margaret! Exposing myself through my writing has been challenging. Promoting on top of that will be a real testament to believing in myself.

  2. I think you're very brave doing talks to groups about your writing, Margaret. I have done talks on family history and various 'Girl Guiding' subjects, so I'm not scared of talking to a group. But I wouldn't have a clue how to talk about my writing. You'll have to give me some tips!

  3. I just wish there was a way to track all of the things we do to figure out which ones are really working. I'd devote most of my time to them...
