Rough Writer and author, Anne Goodwin, appears as a guest blogger at Carrot Ranch Monday, August 10, 2015. She’ll discuss the shrinking violet’s response to book marketing and how she coaxed her own reluctance to market her debut novel, Sugar and Snails, into a blossoming campaign.
Considering that Anne is entering Week Four of an impressive schedule of guest-blogging and other book-launching activities, it is easy to surmise that she’s stepped out of the shrinking violet role and into one that recognizes the importance of an author’s role to getting one’s book into the hands of readers.
Anne Goodwin writes fiction, short and long, and blogs about reading and writing, with a peppering of psychology. Her debut novel, Sugar and Snails, was published last month by Inspired Quill. Catch up on her website: annethology or on Twitter @Annecdotist.
Be sure to visit her all her guest posts for Week 4! And buy her book!
What a lovely introduction, Charli. I’m sure Anne will get on famously at the Carrot Ranch with you. She had a great visit with me. 🙂
Isn’t it wonderful to welcome a friend in the midst of an exciting debut? Anne is doing a great job, traveling the blog tour circuit!
And equally wonderful to be able to meet up with online and off-line friends at this exciting time.
She definitely is. What a great role model. 🙂
I agree, it’s a beautiful introduction and I’m really touched, just the boost I need after a less successful marketing attempt yesterday!
What happened?! (Don’t mean to put you on the spot…just hoping it was a small setback — nothing major.)
No, nothing major at all, Sarah, it was just the shock of seeing the ordinary downside of the professional writer’s life after such a thrilling first fortnight. As Charli says, every attempt is a brilliant success, so I hope I don’t regret admitting my disappointment in today’s post:
Thank you! I’m so happy to host you at Carrot Ranch, Anne! And as to marketing, every attempt is a brilliant success — some result in sales and others in insight. On to the next!
Looking forward to reading this guest post, Anne. 🙂 Agreed. Lovely intro, Charli.
It’s a great post! Anne has much tactical wisdom to share. 🙂
