Promote Your Damn Self

So many people are afraid to tell the world about what they’ve created. Whether it’s a physical product, A blog post, A Kindle book. People are aways hesitant when it gets to that point. With most the gatekeepers gone, and the ball of success in our court. It’s necessary that we are proud of our creations and can tell the world about it.
Someone rejecting your creation can be heartbreaking. I experience it everyday, But it’s something that must be done for me to be successful.

WE FEAR REJECTION

Remember;
– 33% hate you
– 33% Love you
– 33% Don’t give a shit about you!
I love that quote because it’s true. Sometimes it’s easy to let those haters rip you to shreds, Their jealous. Keep going!

Don’t do it the wrong way!

– NO HARASSMENT
– NO SPAM
– NO ANNOYANCE
No one wants to be sold to! Everyone wants to buy on their terms.
If I came up to you and said “buy my coloring book” “BUY IT NOW!” “BUY IT” AND YELLED AND SPIT IN YOUR FACE!!!!!!!!!!!

Would you buy my coloring book!?

HELL NO!

If I left my coloring book sitting out at a table at the fair, With a price tag on it. Then I gave you some free coloring pages with no strings attached. I was nice and smiled. But didn’t necessarily TELL YOU to buy my book, Wouldn’t you feel more like buying my book?

OF COURSE

Because I did something for you, Now your brain tells you, you need to do something for me in return. Plus I was super nice and genuine. Why wouldn’t you support an artist?

See the difference?
In online terms, this can be more difficult!
Sometimes coming up with a less – sales pitch to tell my Facebook friends about my new book is kinda hard. But I try to emphasize the fact that it’s unique, Hand drawn and that I’m having a sale on it for only 3.59
This seems to do better. I also create a collage of the pages on the inside as the photo, Instead of using the Amazon link photo. That seems to help, Because I’m emphasizing the inside, (The fun pages for the customer) Rather than the Amazon listing.

I went off topic a bit!

WHY SHOULD YOU PROMOTE YOURSELF?

No one will do it for you

Occasionally you’ll have someone share your stuff without people knowing about it, But you need to get your stuff into as many hands or eyes as possible first.

No one will see your work!

It’s great the gatekeepers are gone! We can publish our shit. But it’s easy to disappear in the millions of listings on Amazon.

Your time and your Money will be wasted if you don’t

Self-publishing isn’t free; I’m sick of people saying that. I want to slap those people. It’s not free. It takes a ton of time to write a book, Then you need to hire a proofreader, A cover designer, Then you often have to pay for marketing! It’s the furthest thing from free.
But I do agree it can be cheap, When you know what you are doing.

Conclusion!

Promote yourself! Don’t be hesitant or full of shame, Be proud of your accomplishments and rock it! You are great! Keep it up.

How To Outline An Idea For A Book

So want to be an author huh? Do you have what it takes? The brutal and grueling moments of spilling out the words on the computer? the long nights and early mornings! The marketing, The formatting, the whole package?

If you already decided you want to take on this task, I will help you! I’ve done it many times. Writing is the funniest part! But it can also be a painful headache if you don’t start with a **outline** Of what you want your book to convey!

Ready to get started!?

Decide on a topic

This is probably one of the hardest parts because you also have to decide if it’s nonfiction or fiction.You probably have that idea in your head already, Now you should look on Amazon and see how well some of the books are doing! Is it a profitable topic?

Make a list

Write a long ass list of what you want to be included in your book, EVERYTHING! Then thing about

– WHAT DO THE READERS WANT?

Now, Make a Table of Contents for your content, And keep both lists handy for when you write out that first draft.

Organizing is important! It could mean the difference between your reader loving or hating your book!

So make sure your subcategories work well in your main chapters, (if your writing nonfiction.)

The dreadful First draft

Many people are afraid of this part; Their perfectionism takes effect
STOP IT! RIGHT NOW!
Type type type writes write
AS FAST AS YOU CAN,
Does it look like shit? NO one cares. Just get the first draft out as quickly as possible. Puke your heart all over the computer, Once you have your first draft, you can go into crazy perfectionism mode and make your book look great.

It’s really easy to make an outline. Just write it out as quickly as possible. You can edit later and make your book great, You have a lot of great ideas in your head, So get them out.

How the “No contact rule” can help you get your Ex back

Relationship

 

Ignore the Guy, Get the guy
by Leslie Braswell
Looking for a good, “No contact” rule Book? Well this is the one, Many women struggle with this, We get dumped like a piece of garbage. And we just want to lash out, First we are angry! Spitting out swears and breaking stuff. Then our anger becomes engulfed in utter sadness. While we are forced to face the reality of the situation. It hurts, It kills us. WHY!? Why!? We need closure! We need it now!!
This book was funny and informative! Here I share some of my favorite parts 🙂
My favorite quote in the whole book:
“Men are like trains, One comes by every five minutes”
haha!! This book really teaches you to respect yourself.
Many men walk and tear apart women until we are nothing left.

This book will…
*  Help you identify what men are worth it, Which ones aren’t
* Help you not go insane while you are doing the no contact method
*  Teach you the tricks you can use to get him to come back for you.
* Give you a nice time frame of when stuff should happen.
Example from the book:
3- Weeks He’s wondering why you aren’t seeking him out.
4- Weeks Wondering what you are doing
5-6 Weeks He should be like a high school girl.
8- Weeks He’s moved on, you should too.

The author also sites relationship tips and quotes from other well known books, Which really adds credibility to this book.
This book is all about keeping your respect, for yourself. and making him respect you!

 

“If a man truly loves you. You’ll never question where his heart is.”

DON’T FEED THE EGO, Back off let him fall apart.

DON’T S
– Text him a lot
– Accidental text (haha Guilty)
– Call Repeatedly.
– Begging Pleading
– Blocking your number, calling and hanging up.
– Driving by his house
– Sending Emails

Men often fail to realize what they have until it’s gone.

My favorite rule: “for every 3 to 4 attempts he tries to contact you, Only reply to one”
Most books say absolutely not. Which makes it more difficult to do.

TONE: This book is like sitting down with your best friend, She’s upfront and kind, But serious. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LET THIS JERK HURT YOU AGAIN. Attitude!

 

 

WARNING: This book does reference “god” a lot. As an atheist It bothered me a little bit, But It still has great information.

For those of you wishing to purchase the book to read the rest,
