The Day-Glo Brothers isn’t scheduled for publication until fall of ’07, but yesterday I began working on a database of media, stores, libraries, reviewers, etc. that I’ll want to notify when the book comes out. Yes, folks, I’m becoming a marketeer.
Why so early? Because I don’t want to have to rush it at the last minute and end up laboring over this stuff 24/7 when I should be getting giddy about the impending publication. This approach should let me dabble in the marketing from time to time, and should allow me to take a break when I get sick of it.
Plus, I don’t know what I’m doing, and starting now should give me plenty of time to figure it out.
