I just realized I went all of March without a lesson…whoops! I’ve been slacking lately, I know.

Anyway, today is Wednesday, and I’m actually trying to do more posts lately. Today is a continuation of Monday. We’re talking about balancing family emergencies and promotion.

Things happen. Family emergencies happen. I get that. It happened to me, too. In fact, it just happened.

So, how do you balance family emergencies and promotion? Well, I admit, I didn’t do very well. The thing is, you have social media at your disposal. It takes just a few seconds to throw a tweet together, put a Facebook post together, or whatever. All you have to do is think about it, and do it.

Now, I do admit I thought about it some while my dad was in the hospital. I thought about it a lot, actually. But I never did it. I know, how disappointing.

That’s a mistake a lot of people make, though don’t get me wrong, I completely understand. My biggest mistake is not promoting it at all during this family emergency even though my book had just come out like a week before. I’m not well known (yet), but yet I wasn’t focused on promoting.

I know it’s understandable, but still a mistake.

I could have made a post or two while I was actually not making a hospital visit.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not beating myself up about it. I’m just telling you my mistake. Don’t do like me.

Get out there and promote your book!
