Thanks Susan for your timely thoughts on social media. It's amazing how much  emotion people invest in reacting to comments or lamenting the lack of them on Facebook and such places.  Are their computers missing the delete key or unsubscribe link?

Along with your advice about taking an occasional break from social media and not becoming emotionally invested in it, I'd like to remind authors and others that we have control over our privacy settings, and can unfriend folks and limit our reach. 

On the other hand, as a marketer you can't have it both ways. You can't market yourself and book widely and limit your exposure at the same time.  As with anything, we must use wisdom and discover what works best for us to reach our business and personal goals.

Hi Flora, Great insights. Social media by its very nature tends toward the superficial. With the 24/7 din of commerce, propaganda, slants and personal agendas going on, it's a challenge. But like you say - it's our choice. Delete, unfollow, unsubscribe, take a hiatus . . . but always keep your perspective and sense of humor intact.

When you decide to self-publish your book you are in charge of the process. Take the lead in making it a satisfying experience.

Since most of the billions of authors publishing books don't get wealthy, it's important that we write books that matter to us and to those readers who find us. We have an obligation to promote our work since there are readers for whom each of us is just the right messenger. It's great learning how other authors have marketed their books so we can choose the ways that resonate with us.

Thank you.

Susan, congratulations on your launch. I am encouraged as my book moves closer to completion and I'm lining up my launch and other promotional activities. I know that my success depends on the help of my wonderful friends and colleagues on and off line.  I set up a signup on my site, ColorYourLifeHappy.com asking visitors to become my prepublication buddies. They will help to make up my promotion team in person and/or in spirit. I wish you continued success with book exposure and sales.
