Okay, it’s now Day 13 of the 5 Minute Promo Challenge and, if you’ve been here since day 1, it should be getting easier. If you are new here, it’s still easy, though you are welcome to go back to day 1 and start from the beginning. All you need is 5 minutes a day and a book to promote.
Today’s task takes you back to Instagram, where you have already set up an account (if not, now’s the time).
5 Minute Promo # 13
Snap a book selfie and post in to your Instagram account. A book selfie is a selfie (ie photo of yourself) with your book. It can be as simple as a photo of you holding your book, or you can get adventurous and come up with something unique. If your book is about an acrobat, take your selfie reading the book while standing on your head. Or, if like me, your book features chocolate, take a selfie of yourself, your book and some chocolate.
Feeling camera shy? Don’t worry – a selfie doesn’t have to feature you smiling into the lens. Here’s a selfie I took of my feet a month ago, and this one features my shadow. Experiment until you find something you’re happy to share.
