Marketing, for introverts

A few of us were talking Monday night about introversion and how so many of us in this field describe ourselves that way. It's actually comforting to know that's the norm--it really doesn't feel like it when you're at a conference or big meeting and see everyone actually making eye contact with other people.

This is why I'm finding myself rather taken lately with Shrinking Violet Promotions, a blog dedicated to marketing advice for introverts. But it's really a lot more, and there's a great interview up there now with Maggie Stiefvater, who wrote the bestselling paranormal romance SHIVER. (It debuted at No. 9 on the NYT list, making it a breakthrough book for her after an earlier novel scored a "low four-figure" advance. Sweet!)

They post once-weekly on Mondays. Here's where you'll find them.
