What to do with yourself in the weeks after the ARCs go out?

Serious, dedicated, professional indie authors—if such animals exist—will have a list of productive tasks to occupy themselves.

  • They might work on their website. Mine is good enough for now, so no.
  • They might get ahead on their blogging efforts by drafting new posts. I could barely come up with this idea, so no.
  • They might work on their mailing list. B O R I N G, so no.
  • They might be working on their advertising plan. I don’t have any money, so no. I am however waiting for Whizbuzz to let me create my ad in the week leading up to March 31, so that’s something.
  • They might create teasers. I’m not inclined to give too much away in short reads—the SPOILER effect—so no. Excerpts from reviews are something I will create posts for, if and when they start coming in.

There is a direct correlation between booby pics on my @EroticYou twitter page and my level of boredom.

  • Scrolling my twitter feed for naughtiness is fun, so yes.
  • Searching sexy media for this blog is fun, so yes.
  • Inviting your hot neighbour over for wine and bad decisions is fun, so yes.

Keep it fun until the world decides your writing is good enough to warrant turning it into a business.
