Toot! Toot! IWSG
When the time came that I partnered up with Gwen Gardner to form Partners in ParanormYA for our blogtown tour to promote Neverlove and Givin' Up the Ghost, well, I was Marine Semper Fi excited to toot, toot because I was tooting for both books.
Then, it was just me and Neverlove.
And I could barely peep enough to make sure everyone knew about my book or were excited enough about my book to recommend it to friends and family or the neighbor teen down the street. It is an upper YA novel and I'm pretty much bumbling in my efforts to reach out to that demographic lol!!!
I tried, weakly. I tweeted a couple of times a week, added a blog post reminder here and there. But nothing like the recent return of Marine Semper Fi that I did during the Black Friday thru Cyber Monday sale. I was on Facebook, Twitter and blogging with gusto and was so excited, again. The difference? I wasn't alone so I was thrilled about tooting the horn for others.
Notice a pattern?
I finally did. I hadn't noticed it until I saw how easily it was for me to become aggressive for my fellow writers yet become a bashful wallflower when it came to tooting Neverlove all on it's own.
Why? I don't know. And I suppose that's why I'm writing this today for IWSG because I LOVE Neverlove, believe in it and know that it would make a great story to read for action, romance and paranormal elements.
What to do, what to do?
