Am I Too New To Plateau?

In the immortal words of Def Leppard is it “better to burn out than to fade away”?

If given the choice I’d rather not pick either.  I am in serious need of a fire under the proverbial ass of my marketing campaign.  I’m burning out like a meteor here but so far the ride has been a hell of one.

Here’s the top 5 things I want to do to kickstart my new marketing plan…

  1. Book Trailer–seems to be the most fun thing you can do with your clothes on.
  2. Virtual Book Tour–a way to interact and communicate with fellow authors/readers/bloggers/fans (or at least to gain fans & readers)
  3. Interviews–although in my previous post I confessed that I’m not the best on the spot kind of gal but one thing I know is that I can talk about my book. I love my book, the characters the story. As a matter of fact I could probably talk at nauseum about it.
  4. Spend more time on GoodReads and maybe finally check out Book Blogs.

and…

5. Finish some works.  Mainly my sequel.  I’m close to done with the first draft I have about 3 chapters left but I’m struggling with the ending I want something unexpected but not cliché.

Not so unrealistic right? Unfortunately I cannot seem to get them done I don’t have internet at home it was the sacrificial lamb to making my ends meet. And up until now I was ok. I get my Netflix dvd’s in the mail (yes people still do that) and I use the internet at work before my shift and during lunch. Not enough time though.

I just got a new smartphone so I’m able to get on the internet more frequently but I can tell you that trying to post this right now on my phone is torture due to autocorrect. I can probably warn that there may be some funky words happening in the finished product of this post, no I will edit it painstakingly thoroughly.  However, being that it’s just a phone I’m a bit hindered plus there’s that pesky data plan.

Anyway this post wasn’t to complain.  As a matter of fact last there was no complaining night while lying in bed when I came up with this post. And I wished I got up and wrote it down because it was so much better. My mind is like a sieve sometimes.

But the purpose of this rant is to ask…all my blog followers and friends, what can I do to boost marketing w/out the use of the computer? Please let me know if you can come up with something so far I’ve been stumped.

I’m really interested in hearing some ideas! Spring is here and it’s time to shed my hermetic shell and get out and see world; so if I can do something outside that would be ideal.

I look forward to your ideas!
