It's interesting to watch other authors, who are more or less my peers, and see how they handle themselves.
One thing is for damn sure. Most of them are considerably more active in promoting themselves and their books, both online and in person.
Some of them are extreme extroverts, dressing up, acting out, engaging and arguing and posting and showing up at every conceivable event. This is not to criticize them. In fact, the opposite. More power to them! I can see how that might work.
Actually, I can see how that might be the only thing that works.
Ah, well. I need to just keep writing my books. That takes all the energy I got.
