I stink… no let’s face it; I suck at selling my book. I can talk another person’s book up to perfection and sale it. Some books I can do that with that I have never even read. I used to all the time, that was my job at B&N. It’s why I was moving up so quickly. Yes, I did read a number of them but not all of them. I had the experience from the years in the library to look at a person, talk to them for a few minutes, and give them a book that was made just for them. Moms that had sons that would never read would come back, thank me for giving them just the right book, and ask for more. I can’t tell you how many unwanted hugs I was given working there, but I still can’t sell my book. I know it better than any other, but I still can’t sale my book. I feel like a street walker when I try. Please, don’t take that wrong those of you who can. I have witnessed hundreds of people sale their book with class, grace, style, and a lovely smile, but I still can’t sale my book. I’ve thought about giveaways but it frightens me… I could do it, but I truly want everyone to win. I want everyone to smile and be happy with the outcome. So people of the blog reading world, how do you sale your books without feeling like you’re selling yourself?
