I have been spending a lot of time marketing and I always wonder how I will be able to tell what method produced results. It's sort of like dietary supplementation. If you take five different things and feel better, how do you know which one caused the improvement. With supplements, obviously, it is best to take one at a time, but I don't have the time to do that with marketing.
I am marketing libraries, doing promotional work on Amazon, getting (forcing) everyone I know to help promote. I am going into bookstores and leaving the manager with my book. I guess it is safe to say that I am doing everything in my power (and somewhat limited time) to get this book to be a success.
I've also sent out about 10 review copies and I wonder if that is a waste of time or not. God only knows, and I don't think he's in the mood to talk right now. He might have a few other things on his mind.
