A goal set


As I was thinking today at work I was wondering about my goal and if I should share it. Just like running a marathon I thought about the people who helped me through it but more importantly sharing my success and my failure with them. It is with that in mind that I shall share with you my goal for Love Coverfront. It is a simple goal and one that I think if I reach out and grow as I have been doing with all of you that I can attain my goal. Last year I made my meagerly small goal of selling 500 copies that is in a mixture of paperback and ebooks.
Now it was not all at once. Oh how I would have loved that but no. It was throughout the year and I was only able to do it because I ended up giving away almost 10,000 copies via the kindle free book promotional. This year I do plan on giving some free books but not through the kindle promotional. I will be making a certain number of free books as prizes if you are a lucky number in buying through Amazon. This is in all in trying to reach my goal of 1000 copies for this year.

  • No I do not have a huge fan-base. Yes folks you are it. But if you help me and I help you I think we can grow. To that end I promise to be more out there, more talkative more, well what ever you need me to be.
  • No I do not have the funds to pump into a huge marketing campaign. Having to support a family means that I can not dump a couple of thousand dollars into a marketing campaign. But what I can do is trade reviews, Proofread for reviews, And even do some cover work for reviews and promotional help.
  • I do have drive. And if you have ever met me in person I will always keep my word. I was raised to keep my word, sometimes to the detriment of my person but I keep my word. Which is one of the reasons why I am very weary about giving it. Yet if you approach me and I promise to help you, I will.

Yes I could keep going but I think you get the point. So I ask, help me to grow my readership and I will help you to grow yours. Some ways you could help me out.

  1. Tell your friends about my blog. Comment on my blog. The nicest thing you can do is comment to let me know you were here.
  2. Reblog my posts. If you find a post interesting or if it is a chapter post. A reblog would be nice. I tend to reblog stuff that I find interesting but once in a while I reblog things that I feel you my followers will like. You never know, if you help two people make a connection the feeling that you helped people make a connection is sometimes enough.
  3. Favorite a post.
  4. Tweet a post.
  5. Review my book on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.

    So many things we can do for each other. I hope I can do for you as you do for me. And please enjoy my blog, my books, and my life as I share more of it with you.
