Publicity

So here I am, a published author. My book ‘THE CYCLIST’ made ‘Editor’s Choice in the Historical Novels Society review. The reviewer liked the book. I think I love her. :-)
 
They said: “This is a haunting and bittersweet novel that stays with you long after the final chapter – always the sign of a really well-written and praiseworthy story. It would also make an excellent screenplay.”
 
Sounds great doesn’t it?
But, there are about fifteen ‘Editor’s Choices’ in the magazine. I have no idea how to get the review seen by the general public for whom the book is written.
 
So over to publicity. I’ve written a bit about it on the how to sell your book on this site but the idea of publicising myself is still totally cringeworthy (is that English?) to say the least.
My next port of call is to consider a bill-board on the A66 to further ram the damned book down poor commuter’s throats! Expensive way to sell your book, but it paves the way for sales of the second book, due out this year.
 
When I do the book signing, I’m giving away free t-shirts and mugs with the first few sold. Be there or be square. (Waterstone’s Booksellers, Middlesbrough Centre 19.2.11 11 am).
 
Will this self-thing never end??
