"Make a video trailer with your phone..." See above.
"Follow this person on Twitter." Sounds like a waste of time, especially when my computer is downstairs, on a desk, pretty much immoveable.
"Build your platform." My husband is the carpenter, not me. And how does a fiction writer figure out her platform, anyway?
"Gather your tribe." HUH? I have a tribe? I used to, but they grew up and moved out. Why would I want another tribe?
"Run a contest." How? What in the world would I offer?
You get the picture. The world of technology has long ago passed me by. And yet I want to be published. Not pay-your-own-way published, but by a real publishing house with editors and all those wonderful people who want to help me succeed so they make money.
Is that too much to ask?
Maybe it is, for a technosaur.
I'd love to hear your comments.
