Overcoming Author Shyness

You grow up with injunctions against “showing off” which makes it difficult to bring out a book today. With previous books I could face my readers, find out what they wanted from the book, and often respond with suggestions. Facebook, LinkedIn are marvelous tools, and I get used to them only incrementally because of the technological filter. One reads so much from faces, voices, physical presence. When I speak at Toastmasters events, the difference is dramatic.But it’s still “showing off” I guess.
