Writers cry about the burden of self promotion and yearn for the halcyon days when publishers did it all.
Cheer up, now. I have it on good authority that self promotion can be fun. (And did publishers really do it all? I hear a lot of odd stories about that species, but I don’t think half of them are true.)
Witness what an investment of $15 has produced for Bruce Holland Rogers:
I don’t know if it will work for Bruce. I don’t know what his return in subscriptions will be for this investment of 1,500 pennies (that’s five bones each to three different sellers on fiverr.com).
And I care not. This video put me in a good mood, and if this is what DIY author promotion looks like, I’m all in.
