Believe me, if there was a digital version of a sandwich board that read PAY ATTENTION TO ME OR I WILL FOLLOW YOU HOME AND TAKE A DUMP ON YOUR LAWN I would wear that sumbitch. Lacking that, I must lower myself to doing self-promotion like a commoner, begging people to put eyeballs on me. It’s humiliating. It’s why I drink. Damn you all, just buy my books without me having to do anything! Including write the books, as that is a LOT of effort.
Still, promotion must be done. Here’s a round up of all the freebies out there currently to inspire you to read my mighty works:
- Fixer, the prequel Novella to We Are Not Good People, is available as a free eBook at Amazon, B&N, and other places.
- Fixer is also available as a FREE audiobook.
- We Are Not Good People is itself being given away in print form over at Goodreads.
If the idea of meeting me and shaking my sweaty hand as I mutter and twitch appeals to you, you will have your opportunities, my friends:
- I’ll be at the Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, September 21st, at the Mystery Writer’s of America table from 4:30 to 5:30pm. I’ll be signing and giving away books and other stuff and accepting dares.
- I’ll be at New York Comic Con this year, floating about and on a panel on Friday, October 10 at 1:15PM called “Playing with Magic” along with A.M. Dellamonica, Ilona & Gordon Andrews, Kim Harrison, George Hagen, and Jaclyn Dolamore. Moderated by Lev Grossman.
I’ve been writing a lot of things in service of self-promotion. Some of them are even good!
- The Story Behind We Are Not Good People over at Upcoming4me.com
- An essay about magic systems in novels originally at Off the Shelf, then picked up (and retitled disastrously) by The Huffington Post.
That does it for now. More things in the works, of course, but self promotion is exhausting and makes me feel dirty, so I need to drink now.
