Shamless Self-Promotion for Writers

Okay… I want to try something a little different.

I know a lot of you have websites you care about, blogs you update, books you’ve published and wish to promote. Or maybe there is an article you want to share, an image that makes you laugh, or a quote that you adore.

I want to see them!

So… this is a free for all post. Leave a comment and say whatever you want to say. Promote your book, call people to your blog, leave an inspirational quote, have a rant… whatever!

This blog has around 2,500 followers , so lets share our work, show everyone what we’ve been up to and just generally talk about this wonderful thing we call writing.

Edit: This thread has gotten huge, so I’ve created a Shameless Self-Promotion PART TWO post πŸ™‚ Right here.

  11. Hey
    Thanks for your visit to neurofaultprotection and for your encouraging words of praise. I hope you went on to: http://www.tangodragon.com website that is where the thriller action is.

    Okay, lets face it, are you writing for the pleasure, for the vanity, the ego of for the dosh, yen, dollars etc? Frankly, I have a hell of a time with my imagination when I am writing and go into another world. that gives me a huge boost and an adrenalin rush for hours on end. The romance and passion brings waves of emotion and yes sometimes I cannot see for the tears and yes there is also more adrenalin, its a crazy mix. Better than any drugs. I have asked myself if I am having an ego trip or doing it for the vanity of being a writer, frankly I don’t care a s–t, I certainly do it for the money, so when I get going on my posts and marketing I can be audaciously brazen about self publicity. As a kid I was shy. My wife says I am an introvert. I am a gemini so I think she is confusing the isolation of writing and my other side. the two are as far apart as Jeckle and Hyde.
