1) I've still only received a handful of paying forward prizes and I want to open the nominations next week. Please please please don't forget to volunteer!
2) Because my life is steadily becoming busier, I won't be doing the Word Master Challenge this month. Much as I love it, I just can't do everything at the same time.
3) Entries for my Crazy Goals Bloghop are still welcome. Any crazy/important goals are welcome.
And now, on with today's blog.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Doorways (announcement about that coming soon) might be published sooner than I thought. It depends on a variety of factors, like when I'll have my tax stuff officially sorted out and how fast I'll be doing the final edits, but the release might be before the end of this year. Maybe. *crosses fingers*
Even though it might be later, though, I'm assuming it'll be sooner, which means I need to put together a marketing plan A.S.A.P.
Obviously, there will be bloghops and reviews, but I'm thinking a bit further ahead.
This book is part one of a series. It'll be kicking off, a series. As such, I'm going to brand and market the series. Yes, the book will be what draw people in, but I'm not doing multiple images for multiple titles. And because I'm the go big or go home type, I'm seeing graphic artists tomorrow to put together a kick-ass campaign.
Sound premature, maybe, but I want everything as ready as possible so that I can simply slot together everything I need to do a few weeks/months ahead of time. Hopefully, I'll generate enough buzz to get a nice debut release going. I'm hoping some of you will help.
More than that, I also need to figure out the timing of a few announcements. Like: The series title. And Doorways's real name. After all, the last thing I want to do is spam my bloggy friends.
Just hoping that everything goes smoothly from here...
Any advice from the veterans?
