Scott-ober has reached its conclusion, and I’m still standing.
First and foremost, I’d like to thank Abbie from The Spontaneous Reader Book Blog and A Million More Pages Group on Goodreads for all of her hard work on my behalf. My goal entering into this was to pick up a few new readers and hopefully a few positive reviews. Done and done.
The winner of the $25 gift card from Amazon was Greta. She participated in most of the discussions and took the time to write an awesome review of Blood Link. Greta also gets a huge shout out as a former medic with the Army National Guard. Thank you for your service Greta, and thank you again for participating.
Was I comfortable with the promotion and would I do it again? I was very comfortable working with Abbie. She took great care of me and it was a very positive experience. I might even go so far as to say that parts of it were a lot of fun.
In general, am I any more comfortable with promoting myself? I’m not sure that I’ll ever really like this part of the job, but I’m trying. .
How all this will play out in the end, I can’t really say. What I can say for the short-term is that I moved a few books, my web traffic picked up, and I noticed that several of my books are now on some people’s To Be Read lists. Those are all positive things.
Of greater importance is that I forged a positive relationship with some wonderful people. Thanks again, for a great month, Abbie.
