A Charming Bequest

This is my debut novel and for me a huge learning curve, especially now it’s Out There and available (in print or ebook). Now I have to learn marketing and promotion.

And that is so hard for a shy introvert like me, who dreamed of writing books for readers to enjoy originally thinking I could beaver away in anonymity. It never occurred to me I’d have to work up the confidence to do the Buy My Book thing, which is so against my nature. (Is there a marketing fairy who could help me?)

I read about creating a Sales Sheet, which I’ve done but haven’t learned how to use yet. Putting it on my website (it’s there). Creating an Amazon Author Page (I have.) I’ve put it on Kobo, Goodreads and BookBub… and there are more I could try. I’ve blogged a few times and linked my blog to Twitter and my Facebook page. But all these have limited exposure for me.

How do I promote it beyond my friends and people I know? Many of whom have bought it, for which I’m grateful and have given me kind, positive feedback.

Here’s my sales pitch: It’s my debut novel about a young woman, Sophie, who is building her career as a freelance writer. She’s a good researcher, so her Great Uncle asks her to find out about his sister Sally’s life story.

She begins with internet searches, and on a forum she meets Philippe who is looking for information for his grandmother.

Sophie visits Philippe and his grandmother in France, where she meets interesting people, and gleans unexpected information. She receives far more than she imagined.

She returns home to uncover the rest of Sally’s story, her true family history, and a surprise.

I hope you enjoy it and would ask, please can you leave a review and spread the word.
