Now that the winter weather has passed, and spring rains are upon us, I am looking forward to actually getting out and meeting people like I plan to do. Up to this point this month, I had not been able to because every Wednesday since the beginning of the month there has been no church until last Wednesday when I was in Branson with my daughter.This week, I plan to change all that, because this Wednesday I am going to one of the churches.
When I spoke to those people in Branson last week, I know I should have shared my business card with them and told them that I was going to have my book When God Turned His Head available free on Kindle on April 4 & 5, but I just didn’t have the guts to do it. Perhaps I should have, but now it is too late. It was, as far as I am concerned, a missed opportunity.
Last week I did share a copy of each of my published books with my business card included to a silent auction to earn money for a worthy cause. I also have let some sites know that I am going to be giving my books for free on those days. I do however feel really bad that I didn’t share with those employees in Branson. I think they would have enjoyed a free copy of my book. I really need to learn to put myself out there. What is the worst that could happen? Someone say no thanks?
I still have not picked up my most recent draft of A Coward’s Solace from my first Beta reader. That should happen this week. I really need to get the next step done so that I can move forward toward getting the book published for the general public.
