First, the free weekend starts next Saturday. Just to clear up any confusion right away. I’m going to be having Legends of Windemere: Beginning of a Hero will be free from February 22-24 to celebrate its first birthday. I thought it was the 24th, but apparently it was the 27th. That entire 3 day period was a blur for various reasons.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had any free sites that could help promote this within the week. This way I can get a little more out there than my blog, FB, and Twitter. I’ll be using all of those to promote this while trying to plan for the Family of the Tri-Rune Hype Week.
I don’t know exactly when this will occur because I don’t have the cover art. I do have a Google Form ready to go to get people to sign up for the Cover Reveal AND the month-long Blog Tour. I’m going to try to put the posts together as an HTML file this time, so I hope that works. Anyway, the Hype Week for Allure of the Gypsies kind of bombed after the cover reveal. The interviews were barely touched, so they’re out this time around. Still going to try for the Twubs Chat, but it might be me answering questions instead of the characters. My question here is:
ANY SUGGESTIONS? Hype Week is to bring in interest and give my audience stuff that they want. What would people want to see in the week building up to the newest Legends of Windemere release.
Finally, an issue with writing a series is that I can’t post great scenes that I write in the later books. They’re too spoiler heavy. I should have an easier time once the fourth book is out as long as I avoid a few pieces of information and one of the newer villains. I’m writing a scene that depicts the Great Cataclysm, which is going to be awesome. It’s only that it reveals a future villain, two future heroes, and a big Luke-based storyline if I post it. Dang it.
