I have been writing and trying to market and promote my work for a long time.
Note, I said “Trying”.
Despite the amount of time and effort I’ve put in to getting my work in front of people and increase my profile, I still feel like I have no idea. Really. No idea at all.
I started by writing the best book I could. People have reacted favorably to it. People have asked for more. I have more coming out in August.
Maybe that will help. Honestly, I don’t know.
I have a new, collaborated series coming out later this year. That might help expand my audience too. Again, not sure. Only time will tell.
Then there is the blogging, podcasting, Tweeting and Wattpad submissions I’m doing. I know each one of those resonant with some people. Is it helping?
Perhaps the only thing I can do is everything I’m doing now, plus look for more opportunities in the future. That and keep writing new stories. Maybe then, someday, with a lot of patience I might find something that tips the scale to where I’m the next phenom.
Or, at least, talented mid-lister.
