Mea culpa, mea culpa for my neglect of this site in recent weeks. I have no excuses. I appear to be caught in the Land of New Book Promotion with no GPS for successful navigation and I believe I need a new scout like Robert Horton was for the 1950s TV show Wagon Train. He always kept Ward Bond and the train on the right trail with no frivolous detours and, other than a few attacks by marauders here and there, the train inched its way slowly week by week toward the Promised Land. Yes, that’s exactly the kind of leadership I need. A new scout. Maybe I need two new scouts…or even three…or possibly this trip requires an entire Cyberspace Posse of Scouts!
Raise your right hand and repeat after me, “I do solemnly swear to put on my thinking cap for two minutes and send one good idea to promote I’ll Call It Like I See It to Ward Bond a/k/a the writer sheila morris so help me Robert Horton.”
Just to get you started, here are a few of the watering holes I’m currently searching for: book clubs, independent book stores, meetups, house parties, literary roundtables, book festivals, Oprah. I thought Oprah had real potential but then she got caught up in this whole Lance Armstrong thing. Seriously Oprah. What’s more important? Lance Armstrong and his lifetime of lies or I’ll Call it Like I See It with its treasures of truth? I think you know.
I promise to write more as soon as we make camp for the night…Wagons – Ho!!
