When I entered the romance novel business,
I decided I wouldn’t
post my image anywhere online.
I value my privacy
and few readers recognize
their favorite writers.
Has this slowed my readership build?
I don’t attend conventions
or book signings
where I have to be physically present.
But I compensate in other ways.
I’m known for character play
(attending online events
as my heroine or hero)
and readers love this.
I share stories about my life
that create a bond with readers.
I attend and host online conventions.
I’m very active in the community.
When you’re deciding what you WILL do,
also decide what you WON’T do
and how you might compensate for this stance.
