DAY 14: As many of you know, because you were on the receiving end, today I sent an email to everyone I could think of, announcing the imminent publication of My Own Magic. I've contacted a few friends through facebook already, but today I literally went through my entire address book. I added family and friends. I added my neighbors, because we're a friendly bunch and I have a master email list through our Block Watch organizers. I sent the message to the women in my writing group, and to all the members of the writing conference steering committee of which I am a member. I sent the message to other coaches I work with and even to--gasp--people I haven't been in touch with for a LONG TIME. I've heard other authors talk about this in the past, and now that I'm here, I see the value in it. We self-publishing writers must create our own buzz. But guess what? It's actually kind of fun. :)
