Tuesday Poems for #Writers #Inspiration – Book Promotion

Another poem inspired by Lucy of Blonde Write More! Promoting your book without a publisher’s help…

Promotion Overdrive
 Won’t you read my book
 Oh God, please, just take a look
 It’s taken me all this time to write
 I’d appreciate it if you might.
 And I don’t mean just a chapter or two
 The whole book please – then leave a review
 Can I guest post on your site
 A blog tour date, if I might?
 Come, like my page on Facebook
 I’m an author now, just take a look
 I’ve author-ised my Twitter name
 Thousands of followers would be insane
 Building up my Instagram feed
 Because seeing my cover is what you need
 Readers like a giveaway
 A little give here will eventually pay
 Writing books is hard enough
 But promoting them is just as tough

    You certainly got that poem right, Ritu! Writing a book’s a doddle compared to publishing and selling it! (Especially if you’re not technically minded, like me…) x

    Writing is fun and you totally thrive in it. But I can tell from experience that promoting is more time and energy consuming!
