I Love Enthusiasm …

At a doctor’s appointment this past Monday, during one of the routine questions regarding how I was feeling, I mentioned to the nurse that I was tired alot of the time. When asked why, I told Janine that I was practically working two jobs. One full time during the day and the other part of the night. I let her know that I had a book coming out in April.

She was thrilled and asked me what kind of book. When I told her it was a futuristic romance, she actually squealed. I can’t tell you the last time I heard a grown woman squeal. LOL. Janine told me that she and a couple of other nurses were avid romance readers and absolutely adored paranormals.

Well, I certainly know where I’m going to drop off bookmarks and other promotional items when I get that stuff put together. I guess when I think of target readers, I think of booksellers and libraries and such. Pretty dumb of me. Hospitals, offices, colleges … you name it, there is an audience everywhere you look.

It was thrilling to know that Janine is going to be waiting for the release of “Forget About Tomorrow”. Doing promotion over the internet is very effective … but personally, I don’t think anything beats word of mouth.

    You just can’t buy word of mouth, and that’s the beauty of it. I hope she tells all her friends!

    Liz,
    You bet word of mouth is the best advertisement. I have told everyone who would listen and I have at least a dozen or more who want signed copies. keep talking it up.

  3. Liz Says:

    Thanx, Margie. I’ll be more than happy to autograph copies. LOL. I know that Cindy at the local Waldenbooks already told me that she intends to get in a good size shipment when it comes out. Yay!

    Liz,

    Count on us to spread the word from sea to shining sea. I can take care of spreading the word on the West Coast. I think we’ve got midwest covered, who’s gonna take over the eastcoast?

  6. Liz Says:

    I’ve got a couple of friends on the East coast that I’m gonna tag for talking it up. That’s the beauty of the writing community … I’ve got friends all over the country and beyond. LOL.
