We interrupt the regularly scheduled Beach Bling blog post with this late-breaking and totally rockin' announcement...
Cover art for The Blond Leading the Blond arrived in my inbasket yesterday. And <<<drum roll please…>>> here it is!
The scheduled release date is October, 2011. Only 9 weeks away. Yikes!
So now I have to muster up my inner-cheerleader and start promoting myself. I could use a little advice here. In the comments section, please tell me what makes you check out the details of a book to see if you’d like to risk your hard earned dollars on a new author. Do you judge a book by it's cover? Do you pay attention to tweets? Blog posts? Listserve BSPs? Recommendations from friends? Or does a tchotchke from a meeting, conference or book signing give you the impetus to Goggle the book? If so, what tchotchkes work best? Bookmarks? Pens? Trading cards? Something else? I welcome any and all ideas. And if I sound desperate for a knock-your-socks-off promotional gimmick, it’s because I am!
