My plan is:
- Write it on the blog. Get comments if I can, but I'm not holding my breath.
- Use Lulu's new affiliate in NZ to get proof copies printed for a few of the Usual Suspects to read. This will give me a chance to practice with Adobe InDesign for layout, as well.
- Revise it in line with the feedback and release it as an ebook (on Smashwords) and POD.
In fact, all sales of City of Masks have been slow, despite the fact that everyone who reads it likes it, because I can't be bothered to relentlessly promote it. That's not nearly as much fun as writing is, and the additional happiness from selling a few more copies isn't worth the extra effort to me at the moment. I'm pouring most of my promotional efforts into my hypnotherapy practice, and that isn't exactly going stratospheric yet either.
Marketing is a lot of work, at least by the non-Baboon's Backside method.
