I don't think this relationship ended well
As I sat behind this car at the pharmacy window, I felt like a psychic. I don't know how, but I just had this feeling that this person's relationship with a law enforcement official did not go well.

Lesson for the week
I've realized that the best tools in the world are useless unless you actually use them. I have so many books on marketing, promotions, and how to scare people in elevators on my shelves and in my Kindle. Then I forget to read them. Not really the most efficient method.
This week I decided to grab one resource that I already have and pick one idea to do. I went to LinkedIn and actually visited my groups. The Book Marketing Group was great! I went from 14 lonely followers on my Facebook page for UnCommon Sense to 78 in one day. Hmmmm. I can't wait to see what's in the next book for me to try!
Please visit unCommon Sense and like it if you like it! (That made sense when I said it?) https://www.facebook.com/UncommonSense101 This is the current book in progress to be released soon. It combines the silliness of me at home and the workplace. So, basically it shows you why I had to leave the 9 to 5 world.

Step by Step Book Marketing - Let's do this together!
Yes, I'm going backwards. And I'd like you to join me in this adventure.
When I released my most recent book, I was all set to tour, to speak to anyone who stood still long enough, and to scare people in elevators. Then, on the day of my first booksigning, my mother fell and broke her ankle. I'm her caregiver, so that diverted my attention for a bit.
Then, as I was getting set for a second try of touring, she fell and broke her hip. Okay, I can take a hint. It's time to try something new.
So now, I have decided to see what I can do with this book -- completely virtually. I'll tour online, post, and use the social media to see if I can give this book the chance it deserves.
I'd like to invite you to join me. I'll list activities I'm doing on here and tell you if they worked or not. You can share yours. We can laugh at the fact that I check my Amazon sales stats a couple of times a day and recently found myself partying because I sold two books in one day.
Lowered expectations. That seems to be the key...
Want to join me? Subscribe and share your victories and learning experiences. Then we'll drink a toast to each other and try again!
