But I'd be lying if I said I didn't
In my dream world, I've got a bestselling novel (or twenty) and nobody knows anything about me, except for the books I've written. Unfortunately, that's not reality. As a reader, I'm always disappointed when authors have no web presence, because when I'm moved by their work, I crave personal tidbits about them. Where do they live? Are they married? Kids? Pets? Are they nice or are they assholes? If I like their books, none of this should matter... but somehow, it does.
So I forge ahead with all this self-promotion stuff, feeling completely uncomfortable, a little bit naked, and wondering what the hell I've gotten myself into.
What would you be willing to do to promote your book?
