Hi Peter. I just joined this network last weekend and have learned more about marketing from reading your posts than I have from anything I've Googled in the past year. Really cool stuff you're putting out there.

Hi Peter,

I know, I know - three emails are a bit too much for a single day. :-)

I have a question. I read your posts on Lacresha Hays Discussions on "Getting major attention for your books". How do I promote my book on Google Alerts?

I went to google alerts, but what I saw was only a way to sign for alerts, not a way how to promote my books. Could you elaborate please?

Your Bauu Institude is excellent!
Thanks for being there!!

Thanks Peter. I guess the obvious answer is, "I want to spend more time writing." I am currently pursuing the traditional publisher route, having sent a proposal and 4 chapters of my manuscript to TRIAD last month. I rec'd an email from them 2 days ago asking for the completed novel. I'm not sure if that's a good sign, a great sign or just standard procedure. Nonetheless, I will be sending off the completed work (as soon as I spiff it up a bit)...I wasn't quite prepared for a timely response from them. I guess I'll know when I know. Thank you for the info and advice. As always, it's much appreciated.
