For anyone who has never done something like this – written a book and then done your own PR – you may not realize just how much time is involved; we’re talking years here. From conception, to research, to drafting and re-drafting, to re-drafting some more, to publishing, to promoting, it literally becomes your whole life. There is no ‘you’ and then ‘author-you’. You are always ‘author you.’ It’s an immense undertaking.
I was recently interviewed by Taiwanese blogger SooperJerry, where I discussed many of these issues and just how the book got off the ground.
