Writing a book is only half of the struggle – you have to get your name out there and sell your book too.
You need a marketing strategy – that DOES NOT mean a hundred ‘5 STAR AMAZON REVIEW’ posts/tweets a day (especially when it was your mum who wrote the review).
You have to do readings, interviews, school visits, radio, maybe even TV – and you still have to be human.
So that’s why I’m delighted my first interview as an official author was with Michelle Moloney King. And if you’re sick of the usual ‘where do you get your ideas’ type questions, I think you’ll appreciate it too.
Thanks, Michelle, for bringing some fun back to interviews, and thanks to everyone who reads it. Let’s hope there are more like this down the line!
