According to Amazon, the paperback version of Profiles in Courageousness came out July 2nd, but that's not really true. For a print on demand book like mine, things move a bit slower. They haven't even uploaded the cover to Amazon yet and I am anxiously awaiting holding my very own copy of Profiles in Courageousness in my hands.
Creating my online persona has been a labor of love and I am very appreciative of the support that I have received. If it wasn't for it, I would have stopped doing this sometime in 2009. However, 267 days ago when my eBook came out, I soon realized that when it comes to promoting books, I'm clueless. For that reason, I'm really calling on those of you enjoying what I do on Twitter and in this blog to help me.
If you've already bought the eBook, I'd love it if you bought the paperback, but it really isn't expected. What would be great, would be a review (if you enjoyed it, of course). I've gotten universally positive reviews, but I'd really like to get some more.
If you have a blog, radio show, or show on CNN (I'm looking at you Jake Tapper), anything you can do to get the word out is so appreciated.
If you're on Twitter or Facebook, please just mention on your page or timeline that you've read the book and enjoyed it. The only chance a small book like mine has is word of mouth. This book is the realization of a dream for me and maybe my last chance at a second career in writing. I don't mind spending whatever time, money, or sweat it takes to give it a chance to find an audience, but you can do a lot to help.
Thanks, in advance.
