Marketing Mania

I’ve been spending time working on my first novel and trying to market my poetry anthology ‘Compliance is Futile’.

It’s a frustrating business. I’ve managed to get a couple of press releases into local papers:

This is a story from a press release I sent to the local free paper ‘The Chase Post’.

And this is the story written for The Sentinel, for which I was interviewed over the phone following a press release.
The rest has been internet marketing. I’ve learned a few things. The main lesson is that marketing is a frustrating business and every writer really could do with an agent to do it for him or her.
The novel is coming on very slowly. I’ve got the basic plot, theme and characters. It is simply a matter of writing it all out now. And that may take some time.
In the meantime I have to consider everything else as research.
