It's Business Time


I don’t know if you guys know this, but...

I HAVE A BOOK COMING OUT A MONTH FROM TODAY!

So obviously you know what that means: I am about to become wildly successful and forget about all the people who loved and supported me before I was the world’s number one bestselling author. 

Soon, I will be saying goodbye to the classroom and blogosphere and hello to partying at George Clooney’s Lake Como house and cruising the Mediterranean on my new 300 foot yacht with my new besties Jay Z and Beyoncé (which I guess means Kim and Kanye will also tag along).

But before I blow you all off, I wanted to give you all one last chance to support me. 

Will anyone help me promote my book? If you help me, I will convince George to let you star in his next movie. I will let you ride starboard on my yacht. And if your name starts with a K, I will convince Kim and Kanye to name their firstborn after you. 

So here’s what I was thinking: In the comments section of this post or via email (missedperiods@gmail.com), you can let me know if you are willing to participate in any of the following ways, and then I will contact you and we will figure it out. (I know; I should have gone into business management.)

A. Interview me on your blog
B. Have me do a guest post on your blog
C. Blog about the release of my book on your blog
D. Facebook or Twitter about the release of my book
E. Call your friends Oprah and Ellen and put in a good word for me
F. Something I didn’t think of

In all honesty, though, thank you all for reading and supporting my blog. Your continued support really gave me the confidence to make this thing into a book.

I knew you had a book coming out but I had no idea when it was. I'm interested and able to do B,C, or/and D. I would be interested in A but I'm not good at giving interviews, only taking them. Good luck with the book too :) I have a contact page on my blog by the way.

Hey MP, I could help you with B, C, and/or D as well. Think my email is linked to my Blogger profile, so just shoot me a note about what you're thinking time wise, and I'll be happy to help you spread the word. :)

Sara said...

YAY!!! That is *so* tremendously exciting that your book is coming out in one month! I can't even imagine what that feeling would be like (but maybe someday - fingers crossed...) In the meantime, I'm so excited for you!
I'd be delighted to do A,B, C, D (Twitter) or F. Specifically, I definitely want to do A or B in combination with D. I will email you with some ideas for F.

Shelly said...

Shoot, any of the above. (Except I don't twitter.)(Nor do I know Ellen or Oprah.)

I'm new around here, but I'd be happy to let you guest blog (and retweet stuff). Sounds like your book will be a great resource.

Kelly Polark said...

Wow! One month!! Yes, my blog is your blog. Want to do a guest post?

DiscConnected said...

I'm happy to have you do a guest post.

I'll be hanging out with Kanye & Kim a month from now, but have your publicist call my publicist and we'll work something out!

Terra Shield said...

I could do C or D, no prob. Even B would be fine, but I have such a small no of followers that it wouldn't make much of a difference. My contact e-mail is on profile.

Skeptical Czarina said...

Yay! I can do whatever you want, I don't have all that many readers though so not sure it'll help!

Congrats though!!

James Garcia Jr. said...

Absolutely! We can do whatever sounds good to you. I'd love to offer a helping hand. You can reach me at rapture22 (at) hotmail (dot) com or certainly at a half dozen social network sites. I'm nearly everywhere. *sigh*
Talk to you soon.

Remember, if it weren't for us "little people" you big people wouldn't be much. Don't get too big for your bloomers. I'll line you up for a guest post on my blog sometime after George and Ellen do theirs

OTOH congratulations!

Theresa Milstein said...

A through D sounds good to me. I'm up for any of them. Maybe we can do a grammar quiz? A fun one.

Theresa Milstein said...

Or should it be:

A through D sound good to me?

Grammar fail.

Great Blog, I couldn't stop reading them, but I had to get some stuff done around the house. I'm seriously considering asking you to do a guest blog post and promoting your book on my blog calling my friends Oprah and Ellen. Congrats on the book!
Seriously, what would it take for you to do a guest post?

A Beer for the Shower said...

I'm new here (just became your 400th follower... booyah! Also, congrats) but we're always happy to help a fellow writer. We've already put out a book, and are soon releasing our next one. Believe me, the yacht parties* NEVER get boring.

I will happily post about your book on Facebook if you can do two things in return:
1. Tell me the name of the book and a small blurb;
2. Perhaps do the same for me since my newest release came out on Kindle last week :-)

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Aw, well, you know I'll help. Whatever way you like. You have a great voice that I think my readers would find appealing. I know I'll buy your book on that alone. So how about a guest post? Would that work? Congrats on the pending release!

Wendy Ramer, Author said...

FB post done. And I think I promoter you rather well.

Wendy Ramer, Author said...

Make that promoted.

Dylan Fitzgerald said...

I just posted about you on facebook! If you'd like to do a guest post on my blog, you're more than welcome... though I don't think that would count as promotion, since about ten people follow me!
