Today, the first promotional flyers got into the hands of the public. I had spent some time making my own flyer incorporating the cover art and author photo and bio with a brief blurb of the book, so I then printed out a bunch of copies and started giving them out to people: shop owners, students, colleagues. Since quite a few had no idea I had written a book, there was a fair bit of surprise. “Where on earth did you find time to write it?”
I also started calling local bookshops to organise some book signings, and that looks to be an exciting adventure as well.
