Promoting yourself

If you want to get your message across to the big wide world, it’s no good hiding yourself away.

Don’t be modest. Shout about your successes. Put you work out where others can find you. And find you they will …

So I am assured by Tom Evans, the Bookwright, to whom I turned for help to launch myself into cyberspace. I’m not ashamed to say I needed someone to hold me hand to get me started and Tom was the right man at the right time. And I realised I was taking a leaf out of my heroine’s book. Lady Henry Somerset would always ensure she called in the experts to advise her, so she could speak and act with confidence. She was an arch manipulator of the media in her time. What would she have done with the wonders of the web at her disposal?

Within a couple of hours Tom had me blogging and twittering, spinning threads to link with others who share my interest and enthusiasms. I suddenly feel I have access to a whole new world.

A century late, I’ll be able to get some of Lady Henry’s messages out there on the internet, as proxy on her behalf. It’s what she would have done, had the toolls been available to her then.
