Typewriter - tell me about it
For those who still don't believe that I'm actually shy: my aversion to being the center of attention is such that I have told hardly anyone at work the book news. Because augh then everyone will be focused on me. *hides*

What, that I'll need to Do Marketing to sell books?

I've never had any problem believing you are actually rather shy.

But then, I am also a shy person who has tried to push beyond it and I recognize a kinswomen when I see one.

Ee. I dislike it so much when people refuse to believe I'm shy. I'm there with you, in shy sisterhood, and also, well. How awesome will it be when you are buying J. K. Rowling's house and your coworkers are like, oh man, she said nothing, such modesty! ^_~

You could tell them over email so that they can do the immediate/noisy reaction someplace else & then the attention you get in person will be more sedate?

And marketing is a bitch for the shy. I speak from experience there, but you can learn. I find sufficient quantities of caffeine push me into a manic which pushes me into action & disguises the shy quite nicely.

Also, you at least can do a whole lot of online marketing. Which (at least for me) isn't remotely as shy/panic-triggering
