Catalysts and Allure of the Gypsies: The Tentative Plan

First, here is an updated Cover Image:

People should tell Jason how awesome he is.

Second of all, I just received some information (actually after I saved the draft of this) and it is best to debut my book on December 1st.  Closer to the bigger buying days and it gives us more time to finish edits on Allure of the Gypsies.  Best to get it right the first time and November is apparently a slow sales day even for debuts.

Here is the plan:

Catalysts

The horror novella might be going live on the weekend or by Tuesday.  With Allure of the Gypsies coming close, I really want to get Catalysts off my plate.  There won’t be much beyond a few tweets in the early days and a blog post.  It will be a 99 cent novella due to length, my inexperience with horror, and length.  Maybe I’ll get it live by tomorrow night and give it a few days to build momentum to Halloween.

Legends of Windemere: Allure of the Gypsies

I will be trying to do a week of promotions and debut the book on a Monday.  I do apologize for the delay, but it will happen before too long.  My promo plan for the plan is the following:

Day of Sari–  Sari poems, a Sari interview for people to ask questions, and a write up on the gypsies of Windemere.

Day of Kalam– Kalam poem, interview with Kalam and Isaiah, and a write up that either tells or shows a scene where Kalam is training the Lich.

Day of the Callindors– Callindor poem, history of their lineage, and an interview with Luke’s mother if the previous interviews get good responses.  If the interview is out then maybe a story showing a child Luke doing some training.

Day of the Preview–  I know people hate spoilers and I agree.  So, I will take the first chapter section of the book and post it throughout the day.  No spoilers since it’s the very beginning.

Day of Family– Family is a big theme of the third book, so I’ll be going over the topic in writing for one post.  I might also set up an interview with Luke, Nyx, and Sari at once.

Probably some other stuff as far as my blog goes.

There will also be:

  • Cover Review
  • An excerpt from each book on the Community Storyboard
  • Cover Reveal prior to release, which people can volunteer for when I make that post.
  • Blog Tour, which I will go into detail on Sunday.  This is going to occur the month of release and will be very important.  I’m talking if you volunteer and get your day, you come through.  We will be gathering volunteers throughout November.  Seriously, this is going to be big.
  • Other events as November progresses.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  4. Better to be completely ready. But secretly I’m disappointed because I’m ready to read the next one.

    Sounds good, Charles…I like the candles on the mantle – that wax on the left inner one. I wasn’t noticing that the last time I saw this piece. Your stamina amazes me. Hoping all is well
