I recently signed with a big publisher.
The writing world is small.
Heck, the entire world is small.
I knew my other publishers
would hear of this signing.
So I contacted them.
I told them
that, although I was excited about this new publishing deal,
I was as excited about my existing publishing deals
I hoped to publish more stories with them
in the future,
and pointed out that the new deal
might grow my readership.
You know what?
All these publishers HAD heard
of my publishing deal
(although I hadn’t told anyone
outside of a small circle of friends).
One of these publishers
was wondering if I’d be giving up
my monthly release slot with them.
(that would be a big NO)
When you land that big customer,
consider using that news
as an opportunity
to contact your existing customers.
they’re important to you.
