Alexa would have turned four this week.
I would like to think of my book as a birthday present for her.
When we were still in the planning stages of the book, the hubby told me that I would have to go all out to promote it, since I was self-publishing.
I told him at that time, that I didn’t know how to promote it. For one, this book is about a story that is so close to my heart. In fact, it is a story about my heart! Because I was so raw and open in the book, I feel very vulnerable and nervous about others reading it.
Secondly, this book is not like a happy book that I can promote along the lines of “Christmas is coming! Still thinking of a perfect gift for your loved ones? Grab this book today!”
And finally, I’ve never been good at promoting anything especially when it comes to myself (for talent jobs) or anything that I am selling.
But I figured I got to do it anyway. Because, what is the use of writing and publishing this book, but not letting people know that it exists? And how would it help people if they do not know that it exists?
So recently, I was on BFM to talk about the book. I felt quite calm about it because I used to work on BFM and I know the person who was going to interview me. At the same time I was quite nervous because I didn’t know what he would ask me and how I would feel talking about it. In any case, I am glad I did it.
Here’s the interview if you missed it.
If you would like to buy a copy of the book, you can purchase one here.
