|Locke is just so yummy <3|
I've had YEARS to think about how I'd celebrate this event. Since scantily clad, frolicking cabana boys are expensive, I decided I'd better go the practical route -- if only for this time around -- and focus my attention on promoting the book (see, if I can make enough on ZERO FACTOR, I can afford to get the frolicking cabana boys later).
I did TONS of blog-hopping, tweeting, Facebooking and chat-rooming. I met a ton of wonderful, supportive people, and I introduced the exciting subgenre of cyberpunk romance to the lexicon of everyone I met. I was surprised that many people didn't know what it was, so when I explained that cyberpunk (for me, at least) is an urban, gritty glimpse of a possible dystopian future -- sci-fi without going off-world -- most people seemed to get it. And if they didn't, I tried to cajole them into picking up ZERO FACTOR to get a clearer picture. I hope they did. :)
|Uh, I have NO tolerance for this stuff. Sad, but true.|
As I said, throughout the day I introduced my novella to everyone I could think of, but I did take enough time to order a charm to commemorate the release of this book. Since it's a cyberpunk story, the charm is a little computer with keyboard. With every new release, I'm going to get a charm depicting something about that particular book. Since I'm rabid for jewelry, this is an excellent motivator to get more books out to share with the rest of the world. =D
|See the #72 & #82? Those are sub-category lists - cool!|
|In the sub-catagory of sci-fi/fantasy/ghost romance, I was #84|
I'm so grateful to everyone who's put up with me this week. Thanks to everyone who let me visit their blogs and chatrooms (Hart Johnson, The Galaxy Express, Samhain Cafe), and thanks to everyone who gave me so many fabulous ideas on how to commemorate the release of my first book, ZERO FACTOR. And, just in case you didn't hear me the first time...
ZERO FACTOR -- IT'S OUT, IT'S OUT, IT'S OUT!!! :D
|There I am -- 10th on the Best Sellers list @ Samhain!|
(I'm currently 6th. Heh.)
