Candice: Its my turn to write the blog post after the big launch. And I don’t know what to say.
We’ve done what we wanted to do – published a book. Phil even has physical copies for me to fondle later this week. So that’s it then…
I suppose the next step is to make sure we do some serious marketing to get people to buy it. I’ve done an unashamed plug at work and sent an email round the whole department – so that should get some bought. I’ve plugged on Facebook and Twitter as has Phil. Now we need to ramp up the next bit – local press. Time for a cheesy photo when we meet on Friday to send out to the press.
And then its more plugging over the next few months until the next book comes out. I gave Phil a scare as I put in that Book 2 would be out in the summer, well we all love a deadline, but I think that is achievable as we have made a good dent in it and I have 5 days holiday to use by the end of March so I think some of them can be writing days.
I think the big build up is why I feel crap today – I’ve come down with a cold and nasty cough. I just wish I was enjoying the fruits of my labour on a beach like my sister (not jealous at all).
So, plug time, don’t forget to buy Kate vs the Dirtboffins, now available on Amazon!
