BECAUSE LIEBJABBERINGS IS MY WRITING BLOG, TOO
When I post something on my other blog, the one for the Pride’s Children books and stories, that might be of interest to the people who follow my writing posts here, I’ll usually provide a link.
The latest post there talks about the psychology of putting yourself forward for awards, something which still feels somehow odd, if not wrong.
Self-promotion is weird. Filling in things like ‘Author Bio’ and talking about yourself in third person, because that’s what the traditional publishers do, is weird.
The simple act of submitting your work for an award, which wasn’t successful for me for a long time (and it is only recent that my work received one), is still weird.
But if I don’t, no one will. And that’s a sobering thought.
Pop over to the post – and if you ever think you might read my fiction, Follow – so you’ll find out about sales and samples in a timely manner. And the sales before they’re over.
