My first book, The Trojan Conspiracy, was released on July 15. I self published. Why? Because online marketing is my background, and I knew I could execute the marketing plan I had assembled. Why go through a middle man when you can do it yourself, right?
One thing I didn’t take into account: time.
If I were to quit my job or get fired or laid off, I am confident I could truly execute the marketing plan I assembled to make The Trojan Conspiracy a true success. But I’m not going to quit my job. And I have no intention of getting fired or laid off. Combined with the fact that I run FilmJabber.com and on average watch 27 movies per week (a slight exaggeration), I have no time.
The book has been a mild success so far, but is it a New York Times bestseller?
Not yet. 🙂
