Looking for Love

Remember Johnny Lee’s hit song, “Looking for Love (in All the Wrong Places)” from the movie Urban Cowboy? https://youtu.be/FAyDmJvjxbg. I two-stepped a time or two to that song back in the day.

Now that I have a book on the market, I’ve found renewed interest in the song. Indie authors like me are always looking for love in the form of new readers and reviewers. I’d say it’s a hard knock life, but that would be an exaggeration and a whole different movie/song reference.

I find myself touting my book to everyone: my esthetician, my physical therapist, my gynecologist during my annual exam, the checkout person at the grocery store, random folks in line for their vaccinations at CVS, etc.

Occasionally my marketing strategy pays off and I’ll gain a new reader, but often I run the risk of being an annoyance. So far I’ve not been chased away with torches and pitchforks, but it could happen.

So, at the risk of annoying you, dear reader, I’m promoting my first novel, Mayhem at the Happy Valley Motor Inn and Resort https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PDRH2Q9/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_N8QPC4KEQNA1TTH8WD9Y

Please be gentle with me.

Peace, people.

  1. Keep touting! Who knows…you may end up with a book tour once Covid is over! I’m rooting for you!
    I met Johnny Lee a couple of years after the song & movie came out. He came into my shop at DFW. I was a senior getting ready to go to Boot Camp so working at the airport worked. 😊

      1. That is something! If I had a hard copy, I’d have you sign it. I could have you sign my IPad. LOL! It takes time. I almost quite my Etsy shop but I’ve got some momentum and orders are coming in. I’m getting busier which is a good thing. 🙂 Still writing bits and pieces of my book but not a focus at the moment.
