It’s a question I’ve been asking myself. It took me seven years to write my book, and it took every little bit of confidence that I had to finish writing it. I had to concentrate on finishing it instead of working on a platform or some sort of marketing plan. Once the book was finished and it was ready for print, I was faced with the task of making it available to the world. I had not thought about marketing at all, because it took every bit of me just to finish it. I didn’t have time to finish the book AND set up a marketing plan. I wasn’t blogging, because I wasn’t so sure I would even finish the book. But I did, and in the last 6 months I have dealt with what the world has told me that I should have already done. It was a dilemma of mine that caused me to go in many directions. I experienced a lot of stress as a result and even confusion in regards to the direction I should go. So after trying some things, including starting this blog, I decided to bring everything to a halt. I needed to start fresh without outside influences, a reboot. I needed time to consult my Lord and see what he had to say about all of this. In my time I was comforted, but most of all, I had time to rest. Now that I have rested, I think I know what I need to do. I appreciate those who have continued to read the blog as I sought my Counselor for answers on how to move forward. There are some new things I’m going to try. As I move forward in these new ways to market my book, I intend to be sensitive as to what God is showing me. I know that he has a perfect plan for me in this, and it is my intention to follow him.
God forth and be blessed, my friend.
