Marketing is harder than writing…

In an attempt to get more assertive in my marketing approach, I’ve been researching different ways to get the word out about my books. There are four of them: Cold Sweat and The Edge of Forever which are the first two books in the Scalera Family series, Thrown for a Curve, which is a stand alone, although I have a story percolating about Izabella’s brother that might see the light of day but only after the one’s on simmer or boil are complete, and the first book of my Fire and Ice series, Consumed by Fire. I dabble in some political intrigue with this series, as a reflection of how I see the world today.

Word of mouth isn’t cutting it.

As a member of Goodreads, I know that an author can offer a give away which is what I’ve been trying to do for the last hour. There’s a number assigned to each book on Kindle, called an ASIN, which is needed. After many attempts at locating said number, I inserted it only to be told it’s not correct. As any pirate would say, “Aaargh.”

I’ll make another attempt later. The book I’m currently writing, Heart of Ice, is calling. It’s much easier to transform blank pages into pages filled with character machinations than to fill out the simple forms for advertising. Of course, I’ve never been a detail person, always looking at the bigger picture. I’ll go with my strengths for now.
