For the A to Z Challenge, I’m posting promo and other tips for writers, along with a daily photo.(All photos taken by me.)
It’s also time for another edition of The Insecure Writer’s Support Group, hosted by Ninja Captain, Alex J. Cavanaugh.
And today’s A to Z topic fits perfect, as making phone calls used to be a major fear of mine.
If you’re a writer or author, at some point, you’ll start making phone calls.
You’ll use calls to set up appearances and media interviews. You’ll talk to editors, publishers, and reporters. You’ll call bookstores and libraries.
If making calls scares you, here’s some tips that might help:
Sketch out what you’re going to say. Practice. Don’t read it over the phone or it’ll sound scripted.
Set aside a block of time to do nothing but make phone calls.
Start with an easy one to get into the groove.
Don’t stop until you hit a yes and try not to end on a no.
Remember to smile when talking - it does come through!
Now, who’s ready to start dialing?
