For the last 24 hours or so, I have been headstrong on doing some book promoting, all because I found an awesome app on my tablet that I discovered could be ideal for an author to promote their books. I was having great fun with this picture audio thingy. At first, I started out putting a voice audio on my "selfies" and then I posted them up on Facebook. I was not being vain or anything like that, it's just that I found something different and it worked. Well, when I saw that, a light bulb flashed in my head.....book promoting.
I gathered up all the books that I have on hand. You already know that is ten books. Well, I had nine because I am all out of "Broken Voices," which means I have to order more. I mean I have a supply of books, so in reality it is more than ten; I'm just talking about how many books I have published. So, after thinking over my cup of coffee this morning, I started taking pictures of my book covers and then added a voice recording to it. Now isn't that clever?
The recordings aren't long, but you do have enough time to say what you want as you introduce the book. I went crazy with the idea! I was trying to send them everywhere I hang out. One at a time, I was sending to Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and now my Weebly website/blog. Actually, this is my last stop for the day. I will have to continue the rest of my book promoting journey tomorrow. Yes, promoting wears me out, but it is so much fun.
I had a few bumps in the road too while I was trying to get this accomplished, because my tablet was acting up and I haven't figured out how I can upload all this to my computer. I mean I done that and it always ends up as a file on the media player, which is good, but I don;t know how to send files from there to other places, which would have made this entire promoting thing much easier.
Sometimes, when I was finish uploading and clicking send to such and such a place, by the time the file got to where it was going....everything was messed up. I finally had to copy and paste the URL from Facebook to put it on Twitter. I tell you, sometimes I felt like I was running around in circles, because you already know that once you comment on Twitter, it automatically goes to Facebook, which meant I was making double postings on my Facebook page. I bet my "friends" were wondering what the heck I call myself doing. All I can say is....practice makes perfect, I am going to get the hang of this thing because to me.....it is essential.
Okay, so let me see if I can post one of the audio images here so you can see what I am talking about.....bare with me.
Okay, I am now keeping my fingers crossed.
