The Self Promotion Post

As I continue to pursue writing (specifically, writing books) it means I need to reach out and promote...myself.

So, I am cutting straight to the chase.

I am working on a  book proposal about the real emotions of international adoption. Exciting! Yet now a days, proposals include numbers and such. Like for example: How many people follow you on twitter? Do you have a Facebook page? How many visits does your website get per day? How many email subscribers do you have?

It is pretty overwhelming, and I don;t expect to wow the agent or a publisher with my big numbers.

Nonetheless, I still wan to let you know that I am around all those social media sites.

First, I have a writer blog and you can visit it HERE. I don't share many personal stories, but I post 2-3 times a week. My posts deal with parenting, adoption, special needs, and faith.

I also host a wiring prompt linky, and would love for you to join us if you have a blog and need some ideas, or simply would enjoy writing with other people. This has nothing t do with self promotion, I would simply like to write with you!

If you are on twitter, you can find me HERE.

And lastly, I have a Facebook page. I share photos, funnies, links to articles I have enjoyed on topics about parenting, special needs, adoption and faith, sometimes I sadly announce I ran out of Nutella, and sometimes I share some great resources on the topics mentioned before.

It would be great if you would "like" my page. You can find it HERE.

So that's it. Self-promotion is over. I would appreciate your support and if you are building your platform, let me know so I can help you too!


  1. I liked your FB page and followed you on Twitter! I've been trying to build my platform, too, as the publication date for my next novel grows nearer. I write Christian speculative fiction and can be found at www.facebook.com/jsbaileywrites and on Twitter @JSBailey_author. Good luck with your book proposal!

  2. I liked your FB Page. I'm still trying to figure out Twitter, but followed you there, too.

    Here's my info, hope you don't mind the links in your comments.

    I have blog called Little Birds Dad: An illustrated story of a Dad's experiences raising his newborn baby with Downs Syndrome, told anonymously.


    The Little Birds Dad Facebook Page is at http://www.facebook.com/LittleBirdsDad - I am using the FB page to promote positive stories about children with Downs Syndrome in the news.

    I'm also on Pinterest (Still trying to figure out that platform): http://pinterest.com/littlebirdsdad/
