Highway to the Comfort Zone

My goal today was to do something to promote The Slipstream Con that went beyond my comfort zone.  I’ll be honest, like many authors, the entire concept of self promotion is outside my comfort zone, but that’s beside the point.  Today I went looking for reviewers.  I emailed a couple of genre review sites, querying them about the possibility of sending them a copy of the book, and then I girded my loins, and sent off a request to a site I adore, that I considered too big for us.

Yes, they review books.  Yes, they review books in our genre(s), from our publisher.  But they were lumped into the category in my head that I’m trying to erase – places that only deal with “real” authors.

I got a reply within five minutes, and whether or not the book makes it through the review process, I met my goal for the day.  I stepped outside my safety net, and even if they hate the book so much that they renounce technology and flee to an Amish community, emerging once a year to steal a computer and post again about the novel that ruined their life, I can cling to the fact that I did it.

Thank goodness I’m not worried about this stuff anymore. Whew!
