And I don't even have a burn-out excuse because I haven't had a release in months.
So, listen. I got an ebook coming out in October. It's pretty last minute but....what do I do about promo?
With dozens of titles coming out every week, the ebook world is flooded. So much of the promo I'm seeing looks sort of desperate or maybe there's some projection going on here.
--RT has a copy. They'll give it three stars. They always give Summer three stars. Kate gets 4.5 and RT Top Pick and Best First Historical and hugs and kisses. Summer gets three stars but good quotes.
--someone's updating/redoing Summer's page.
--ummm. Maybe I'll guest-blog at a couple of places?
--I think I'm getting one of those week of romance excerpt things because I won it in an auction. I should check on that now that Tara Green's moved on. I haven't gotten any for any books lately, so I hope they're still doing them.
Ah, this is such a far cry from my ambitions. Maybe I should buy a couple of banners places. Cat Brown at Romance Junkies does gorgeous banners. So does Laurie at Laurie likes books. If I had an idea that this book was amazing, I'd push it and spend more than my usual budget, but I never know about my own stuff. This probably isn't hot enough.
Any suggestions? This is an Ebook. For print, I have a whole lot of ideas. Mostly of these ideas are entirely useless for the ebookly world.
I love contests, but there are SO MANY.
I love sending around books for people to read, but the books get ignored because there are SO MANY.
I don't mind jumping on tables in bars and saying heeeeeyyyyyeeeee look at meeeee, but that doesn't seem to sell books. And when you do it in blogs, it might even lose readers.
I think I might do a contest but only because, dude, they're fun--not because they sell books. I don't think they do, actually.
