I’m Sorry For Asking, But….Like Me?

Hello my name is “Debut Novelist.” I apologize for what follows as I  get ready to be in your face, roaming far outside of the reclusive, creative sphere where I sit quietly without bothering anyone.

See, I hope you don’t mind that I am going to ask a few things from you. I don’t like asking anyone for anything, really, that’s how I am. But, I really, really need you. To like, err “LIKE” (trademark Facebook) me,  follow me, and increase my klout and my Klout (trademark Klout). And whatever else is out there that I am supposed to be doing and making you aware of. (Hello neglected Goodreads!)

Oh, and by the way, please ask all of your FRIENDS, TWERPS, bloggers, and so on to do the same. And don’t forget to mention me to your offline friends and relatives, too. And by the way please also subscribe to my WordPress blog (see button conveniently on the right hand side of my WordPress blog page). And I’m still on Blogger, too. So follow me there, too.

It’s not too much to ask, is it?

Today I am going to write up all the reasons why you (depending upon who you are) will want to review/promote/buy my book. And why your friends, relatives, and etc will want to do the same. I won’t be hiring telemarketers to call you during the dinner hour, or drop down an online advertisement that you have to close before moving on. But in my mind, it’s practically the same as what I am about to do.  Be in your face. A lot.

Don’t get me wrong. I like what I wrote. I think you will like it too, especially if you like mysteries with sexy, screwed up heroes and their sexy, screwed up sidekicks. But do I have to go on, and on, and on about it until we are both exhausted from all of this talk about ME and how wonderful my writing is? Wouldn’t you prefer that I spend the time writing the next book for you? I’ll be doing that too.

So again. My apologies. But please like/follow/retweet me, as often as possible. Thank you.
