I have lots of things I want to do. For example, I want to redesign this web page to make it more Young Adult friendly. I want to create a complete set of class materials for my books to make them more accessible to teachers. I want…well, let’s just stop there, shall we? I think you get the point.
The problem is, I also want to write books while I give my family the time it deserves. I’m also involved in a few community organizations.
This is where the 24-hours-in-a-day limit gets in the way.
What I need to do is finish the three books I’m currently working on and then do the other stuff. A web page redesign might bring more readers. Class materials might also help in that regard.
At some point I have to stop worrying about having enough books and start thinking about having enough readers. I think I’ve pretty much managed the former. Now I have to focus on achieving the later.
The problem is, I don’t really know how to grow my audience. Self-promotion doesn’t come easy to me. That means it is hard and easy to avoid. It also means it is more important than ever to give it the attention it deserves.
Time to start laying the groundwork to realize that goal.
