EXPOSURE

Wow, this is an extremely HUGE & IMPORTANT word for any writer of any genre!  So you've written your book and finally got it published, great!

Do you just sit back and watch sales multiply over and over again?  Do you hope some screenwriter somewhere will take notice and voice an interest?  NO and YES...

These things will happen, but only after EXPOSURE happens.

I have a great publicist who tells me in the social networking arena on the Internet, you must have many followers and "likes" to your various sites and pages.  I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE!

Follow my blog, connect with me on face book and linkedin, follow me on twitter, "like" my book on Amazon, share my posts, etc.  These are a few things you could do to help me.

There's been some recent interest from a screenwriter, but my publicist still tells me I need more of the above. 

I am a 56 year old divorced gay male who came out later in life. Having been married for several years, I am the father of two fantastic sons. I went through what many in the gay community have gone through themselves, struggles with identity, as well as fitting in a “one-sided” society. While I lead a seemingly straight life throughout my early and younger middle age years, I knew I was definitely different from the so called “typical male”. I married my high school sweetheart and began on a journey of hope that my true inner feelings and desires would someday change. I am using my book recently released as a vehicle on my mission to educate the world’s population about understanding and accepting people who are gay. My book lifts the curtain on the so called “gay lifestyle”, revealing a human portrait that resonates regardless of gender or sexual orientation. It’s been termed a portrait of success, of meaning, and of hope. It lights a candle against the darkness of ignorance.

I want to see equality for all LGBT individuals happen in my lifetime.  PLEASE HELP BY VISITING THE FOLLOWING:

  1. Hi J.C. Found your blog by doing some blog hopping. As a bisexual woman who came out in her 30's, I have some idea of what you face. I've followed you and will try to figure out how to add you at Linked In. Heading over to Facebook now. and Twitter.

    Also, wanted to let you know that I am a person who does reviews, and if you need someone to review it, then check out my review guidelines at angelThoughts: News & Reviews (http://www.angelgraham.blogspot.com) and I'd be more than happy to get with you on it. I DO NOT charge for reviews. I know that some do. I do the review--Honest Reviews only--in exchange for the book I am reviewing. If you are interested, follow the guidelines on my site and maybe we can get the word out about you and your book.

    Hope to see and hear from you soon.
