Publicity and the Reluctant Writer - Funny Video

P is for Publicity....yeah! Uh...no?  

Writers don't really like this very much do they?  Its intimidating and outside their skill set. I mean, when you're writing you slip into a whole other world of your choosing and making. You manipulate events and feelings.  You are the creator with capital "C" and you like it!

Some other sites to help you build up your publicity "Know-How" are:

Yep, publicity, marketing - putting yourself out there, well it all started when we wrote that book :-D

Publicity rhymes with publish, or something some such. They're the same root word.

Promote. Pay. Publish. Publicity. People. Push. Promote. (I said that already, but it's important.)

So many things besides writing that go into writing.
