Tooting My Own Horn - Dellani Oakes
First stop on the Fantastic Blog Hop is sunny and hot Daytona Beach, Florida. Is that a shark fin?All kidding aside, it's the home of Dellani Oakes - author and instigator of the Fantastic Blog Hop.
I know it doesn't come across that way. I seem very extroverted, and I am -- in certain situations. I was a very shy child. My older sister was the one who could walk into a room of strangers and be everyone's friend by the time she left. She can still do that. I'm the one who sits and watches for a place to fit in. I don't always find one.
Until I started writing. Put me with a bunch of other authors, I won't shut up. Anyone who's heard one of my shows knows that. When I chat with other authors, I'm deep in my comfort zone. I love it there. I can discuss books I'm working on, things I've read, and bounce ideas around for something they're working on. I will talk myself hoarse under those circumstances.
I'm not one to talk about my work with people who aren't authors. I don't loudly announce that I'm an author in a group of people I don't know.
Why? I'm shy. Really!
When it comes to publicizing my own work, I won't say much. I'm not one to stand up in a crowd and yell "BUY MY BOOKS!" Which is kind of necessary if you want to sell something. People need to know who you are, what you've written and where to find your work.
Today is my day on the Fantastic Blog Hop and you can find out more about me by following the links below. Participating authors are:
