Just when it seems that life couldn’t get any better (I just published another book), there are obstacles I must overcome to keep doing what I want to in life. And that’s an every day occurrence. Since I am an author, illustrator, blogger, etc., then writing and publishing a book isn’t but half the battle. It’s getting ‘myself’ out there.
It’s really about connecting with people, getting to know them face to face or via social media. It’s having a following but also following others that are good common sense kinds of folks. Having a platform, a website, a blog to write, a brand, marketing and promotional tools are just some of what is needed after the fact of publishing. Perhaps it comes at the same time or before. But it’s all relative.
I suppose this all falls under communication.
Seems like a daunting task at times. 🙂
