Happy Insecure Writer's Support Group Day!
Thanks Alex J. Cavanaugh for hosting this awesome group on the first Wednesday of every month.
What am I insecure about this month? *snort* Pretty much everything, I guess. But I've just published my first book and completed a fun and successful blog tour. And I have some pretty exciting plans for the future. So as insecure as I feel about my future as a writer, I'm proud of what I've accomplished, as well.
But on to Insecurities:
- Marketing myself
This is a biggie. I'm not good at pushing myself on others. I don't want to bug people to buy my book. I don't want to write a press release for myself and send it off to newspapers. And what if they called me and wanted an interview? Yikes! What if they wanted to see me in person? Double yikes! And what if they wanted to take my picture? Triple yikes! What if I did an in-person interview and stuttered and turned red and, and, and...
...what if I got no response at all?
Do you send out press releases?
How to you handle marketing yourself?
What is your insecurity this month?
