Setting the Literary World Alight ... or not, as the case may be
How do unknown authors get themselves noticed?
I've tried taking off all my clothes and standing outside the local library. Apart from several pidgeons, no-one took any notice, and I had to wait two weeks for a man from the council to come and wash off the poo.
Someone suggested putting an advert in Facebook. I tried that, too. Lots of clicks, no sales, and my friends list has dropped below a thousand.
Book signings, that could be an idea. But bookshops are only interested if they can sell your book, and they don't buy off Amazon.
So, I watch my sales figures creep slowly towards double figures, and hope that one of them is someone who has the power to launch me into stardom.
Not holding my breath.
