….or My Wife Gave Me a Boot in the Ass to use this thing to put the book in the hands of more readers.
…or, Is it Too Soon to Have a Reboot?
The show in August was the best way to get the novel to its first, not to say primary audience. Maybe I shouldn’t say the CornFest crowd was its primary audience. I don’t think I know that yet. Not exactly sure what the novel is, even after spending three years putting it together and supporting it since last summer. Who am I to say who or what the primary audience of this book is? I am the guy who wrote it and very much an amateur in the realm of promoting it and even understanding it…for now.
Planning on reaching out to a few folks who are already published and one of those authors is local. Writing the “Hi you don’t know me but please read me” notes/e-mails are difficult…but I’m doing them damn me. I want people who are further down this road than I to offer some critiques or a chance to say, ‘uh dude don’t go any further down the road’
That won’t stop me. Although I’m not entirely sure what sort of book I’ve written, I know it’s good. I’ll take useful criticism consider it and move forward. This may sound like horse crap, but I’m even healthier than I sound these days.
