Remember this phrase? It used to mean ‘going fast.’ For instance, “he was booking it down the street.” I’m dating myself – but those of you who were alive during the Seventies may remember this phrase.
It means something different to me now. It means I’m working. And by work, I mean writing and editing and editing and writing – and – oh, yeah – marketing.
I’ve been learning that marketing is The ONLY way to sell books. As much as I would like to believe that I can sit around writing and editing and people will somehow discover my website or my blog and buy my book, it just isn’t so.
So, I’ll be updating a lot of my marketing pieces, and hopefully, soon, linking them together with a site where you, my friends and readers, can sign up to receive goodies I’m going to offer monthly! It might be a short story YOU get before it’s published on my blog or in an anthology. It might be a chapter of a book. It might be a week of nature thoughts for the coming calendar week. You will have to check back frequently to find out.
And I hope you do check back – after Labor Day. All the pieces should be put together by then, I promise.
Meanwhile, check out all the blog posts that have been added to this site from my previous nature blog, attached to my website, http://www.marymcintyrecoley.com.
You may have already noticed that my blog here on WordPress has a new url, http://www.marycoley.me. Tell your friends about it.
And meanwhile, I’ll be ‘booking it!’
