I’ve been away from Red Room for a couple of weeks. Not intentionally. It’s just that I’ve been consumed by the advance marketing of my forthcoming e-book, which I am self-publishing in an attempt to attract the attention of an ink-on-paper publisher.
I’ve been on Facebook for a while, so it didn’t take me long to figure out that I could promote the book through the “notes” function, and by creating a page for the book that’s linked to my personal page, as well as to Twitter.
Twitter is another story. I had signed up for Twitter a couple of years ago, but just didn’t get it. And, I must admit, I still don’t quite get the attraction. Even so, I started tweeting again last week and managed to attract 115 followers with teaser tweets about the book.
If you’d like to follow me on this great e-book adventure, add me (Len Boswell) as a friend on Facebook or follow me (@simonsilverback). In case you’re wondering about that name, Simon Silverback is the squirrel who wrote the book, which is called The Leadership Secrets of Squirrels.
