I found a great link I want to share with you. It's called http:Marketing Tip Madness There are some innovative ideas here. Some I hadn't thought of. Having cups(inexpensive, they give you the link)made with your book cover on them, and asking folks on the floats at parades to throw them to the crowd.

The other night, I had this GREAT dream. A famous producer in Hollywood had purchased the rights to my book, Seventy Two Hours. For a movie. When I woke up, I wanted to go back to sleep to find out how it went over, but I decided I'd better get up and finish the book. This is a true story and it was a welcome relief to me. I laughed all day about it. Okay, time to fess up. Anyone had a similar dream?

I'm almost done. The end is in sight. And it feels wonderful. Soon I'll put down the pen and take a couple of weeks off from writing. Then it will be on to the next one! The time to query agents is June 30th. That is a date I have in my head. Thanks for reading! :)

  1. You have been on my mind...how is your son? Much better, I am hoping.

    Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. And, what a fantastic dream! I've not had one like that yet, but it sure would make me smile.

  3. I once dreamed that three of the top literary agents pulled me into a big law office to warn me that a huge bidding war was about to start the next day for who got to represent my book. Not only was it a fantasy, but it was a completely illogical one! :P

  7. Robyn,

    Unlike you and Davin, I haven't dreamed of publishing success; however, I recently dreamt of being able to do a lot of pushups with little effort. I woke up annoyed with my puny arms.

  9. Justus, you're too funny. I think dreamed? We'll have to ask Beth. She's my teacher. I go to her with all things grammarly. :)

  10. I love the cup idea! It reminds me of Mardi Gras. And I can just see marketing my book at Mardi Gras!

  11. Mardi Gras would be the ultimate place for you to market your book, PJ. :0)

  12. That is a great link! Thanks for sharing it. I haven't had a dream like that because I never remember my dreams. I think I would go back to sleep to see how it ended. Your reaction to go work on the book is a much better one :)
