*Sigh* - another time hog. Maybe when I get past the massive projects I have going now - all involving publications, none involving creative writing - I'll get going on Twitter, too.
However, I still refuse to blog. And I pulled out of a semi-local group which requires many posts on a Word Press site with a complicated calendar and posting schedule for topics which I'm not involved in.

Good luck with your promoting, but just use your time wisely. The best use of your time will ALWAYS be writing the next book. …

I finished my book, and its almost finished being edited. Now I am wondering how to promote my book. I have a blog and website,which I post weekly, which I don't get much views. I use social networking sites like Bloggers, Facebook, LinkedIn,StumbleUpon, Twitter, and Pinterest. Is there anything that is affective that helps promote the person, and people know about the book. I find its time consuming going through all these social networks. It is also confusing how to go about getting my name out there, and marketing. Does anyone have advise what best worked for them or to get people to notice the person's book. Any advise would be appreciated.
