I need help with my new book, Share My Insanity: It Improves Everything.
Indie culture relies on community support.
Share My Insanity is self-help humor. Transformative fun. Trickster spirituality.
Spread divine madness:
* Midlist and indie authors rely on their community to buy their book. Each book makes a difference.
* Order Share My Insanity from Amazon soon as possible. The sooner the sales, the more likely Amazon’ll treat the book well—e.g. showcase it so that people know it exists.
* If you prefer a signed copy: http://etsy.me/q20PGk
* Buy a copy or copies as birthday and Yule gifts.
* Most authors don’t break even on a book. Share My Insanity isn’t about money. It is about community.
* I love my community—old personal friends, my readers I’ve never met, my students, colleagues, online buds. You—my peers—are it! It isn’t a large community. I’ve never been one to network.
* Midlist authors often have no promotional budget or publicist. We ask our community to help promote. It is you and I doing a guerrilla thang.
* People will only find out about this book if you help. You do have that power. Do not fall prey to the hoax that the book world’s mysterious ways require hours of study before you can help me.
* “Promotion” in this context is not anything fancy or incomprehensible. It is simply telling friends or other potential readers that my book exists.
* Elaborate, special words aren’t needed, just say that my book is out. Simple. Via Facebook, Twitter, email, phone, whatever.
* Mention it at your church, coven, motorcycle club, or gym.
* Or tell one friend. One person connecting with another. Not mass media or massive numbers. Readers not reviewers. Indie culture = people.
* It is enough to say that the title is Share My Insanity, and that it is available on Amazon. Or just send them this link: https://www.outlawbunny.com/share-my-insanity-it-improves-everything
The book is drawn from my marrow, so it frightens me to reach out for help. But I wrote Share My Insanity to be of service. The whole time, I was writing to the sort of independent-thinker and stardusted traveler that visits this site, reads my books, attends my classes, lives in my heart. The help I need to be of service can only come from that same beloved circle. I’m doing all I can to get word out, but have to accept I am only one person. So I’m learning to ask for help: Help this book help readers.
When you do anything to support Share My Insanity—no matter how small—tell me, so I can thank you. And knowing what you did will bolster my spirits—so I can keep fighting the good fight. Each small thing adds up. Feel the power of that.
Share My Insanity. It improves everything. In gratitude and fellowship, Francesca
