Learning to market myself

This is new territory for me. I will admit that when it comes to fiddling around on the computer, I am at the baby stages. When it comes to self marketing myself, I feel that I am at the same stage. BUT, I am learning and I have had some very nice people help me.
I started this blog as one way of marketing myself. I am hoping with this page to tell you of my journey as I am trying to get an agent and get published. I will reveal to you parts of my thinking process and how I come up with character names and things like that. The process of creating the characters and the places they will live is just as exciting as the creating the story itself.
Another way I have marketed myself is my Facebook page. Please feel free to look it up. It's Sarah Hoss, Author. I promise to do things differently between the two pages. I want to keep you guessing! ; )
Self marketing can be scary. I know that I have not published my book yet, but I want people to see that I am serious about writing. I truly want to make a career out of it. Also, I don't think that marketing is just about selling the books. It's about getting to know the author also. If you have any questions you would like for me to answer, please feel free to ask them in the comments box. I will answer you, I promise! If I add myself to any more places, you will be the first to know!
Thanks for reading along. I apprecaite it! Take care and have a great day!
