Recently I sent out a subscriber-only newsletter about my next book launch. My fourth novel, Whizzers, is my current Work-In-Progress, and I plan to launch it in 2019. 

I was pleased to get some email responses to my newsletter, as I am looking to build the largest launch team I’ve had yet. However, I also realized that I need to do every type of outreach possible.

With that in mind, I’m sharing publicly just a little of what I’ve heretofore only shared in my monthly newsletter. Here’s part of what I said in the most recent one, in a section about launch ideas of all varieties:

 

If you live in the Tampa Bay area, I could do a free talk at your book group. Do you have friends who’d like to be part of a launch party? They could:  

  • Sponsor the event
  • Provide entertainment
  • Donate prizes or giveaways 

If you’re not in this area, what can I do for you in exchange for your generously helping me get the word out about Whizzers? What sort of unique content would appeal to you? 

I can offer cool perks like what you would get if you participated in a crowdfunding campaign – free personalized signed copy, copy of the e-book, etc. – but what else?

Maybe you host a podcast, and would like me to make a guest appearance. Maybe you’ve got a novel to promote too. I’m open to suggestions, as this is going to be the biggest launch I’ve done since I started publishing books in 2015. Let me know what you think.

So there you have it: a Monday blog asking for new subscribers and/or new team members. Remember, you’ll get a free signed copy of the book just for starters – but again, what else would you like?

Oh, and by the way: Whizzers is really going to be something special. I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It’s by far my most autobiographical work, and it’s also ambitious – in the sense that I don’t even know what genre to call it. It has elements of the supernatural and the metaphysical, but I’ll work more on categorization when it’s finished.

Why Subscribe To A Blog?

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you probably know I post something new on my blog most Mondays. Or maybe you don’t know that at all. I’ll admit, I’m not exactly the greatest promoter of my own blog. When it comes to social media platforms like Twitter, I'm...

Let’s Get Personal: Why Do I Write?

I’ve been on a marketing campaign for the past couple of weeks, and missed my deadline for this blog last Monday…so I just plain skipped a week. Those of you who know me are probably a bit surprised. I’m pretty particular about getting things done on time. I’ve always...

Radio, Radio

Last month, I had the pleasure of being the guest on a terrific radio show for authors: the Joy on Paper program hosted by PatZi Gil. PatZi was kind enough to invite me on the show to talk not only about my third novel Miles of Files, but also about my company, Sahno...

5 Things to Do Before You Begin Your Writing Day

What should you do before you start your writing day?I've read plenty of advice on topics like this over the years, and I have to say upfront: I don't think there's a right way or a wrong way. You have to do what works for you. However, I've also tried to do things...

A Journey with A Few Heiresses

Way back in 2016, I got a guest spot on a blog called Writing in the Modern Age by an author named Marie Lavender. Of all the writers I've contacted online, Marie has to be the most prolific – more than 20 books published over the course of 15 years. Marie and I have...

Announcing The Whizzers Launch Team!

This weekend, I got my edited copy of Whizzers back from editing and sent out my monthly newsletter announcing the formation of the Whizzers Launch Team. Stuff is a-happening! As Mike Ehrmantraut once said to Jessie Pinkman, "Big doings today." Of course, that...

The Marketing Thing Vs. The Working Thing

Last week, I took a vacation with my lovely wife, and missed doing a blog post entirely. I see where WordPress has an option of writing and scheduling posts, but frankly, I was too busy doing that with my monthly newsletter. I figured I could ignore the blog for a...

Racism In The Time Of Corona

Yesterday I was going to write my usual Monday blog post, but with the coronavirus pandemic, the fact that I’m just getting over a sinus infection, and much-needed appointments with my CPA and chiropractor before we all have to “shelter in place,” I simply didn’t have...

And So The Tour Ends

Well, it's finally over: the blog tour for the relaunch of Miles of Files ends today with a stop at Novelgossip, hosted by the fabulous Amy. I say fabulous because, man oh man, has she got a following! Not even four o'clock, and already 33 bloggers have liked the...

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2020

Here's wishing everyone a safe, sane Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. For many of us, today is something of a day of mourning: not only mourning the loss of a great civil rights leader, but also mourning the turn our great nation seems to have taken in the last few years....
