While listening to the radio this morning, I heard a story abut a little girl who was playing hide and seek. Nobody could find her because she had such a great hiding place. The family then decided to have their dog look for her. She was discovered safe and sound in a drawer under the dryer. I was glad to hear of the happy ending.
Not to trivialize the event, but I can't help drawing analogies to what some authors do. They write great novels which remain hidden in great spots, like online, at distributors, in book catalogs. Nobody can find these books. That's because the authors don't market.
Writing takes time and effort, but so does promoting. Don't hide something you should be proud of. Get out there and let people know about it.
What about you? Do you write and hide it or do you promote? If you do promote, what methods do you use? Please share.
