Oh, man. What a learning experience. It’s been hurry up, and wait. And then yesterday was one big hurry up. My book is now on the market … and available in every book outlet there is, I think. This is a good thing.
New Website Name –
The book having such a strong google presence has made my website name change precarious. I changed the name of my website (again) yesterday to guess what, Getting Real About Caring. The website name, Making Caring Real, got confusing. But the search engines in the book outlets are dwarfing my website search and access (my diagnosis). I’ll have to figure that out next week.
The point, there is a lot to learn.
However, my new website header is beautiful! … don’t you think?
Book Press Release –
My other learning exercise was to write an official book press release. So I’m sharing it here with you ….
For Immediate Release
