War of Nytefall: Loyalty Blog Tour Volunteers Request

Title Card by Alison Hunt

In early April, I’m aiming to release War of Nytefall: Loyalty.  This is my newest series that focuses on the vampires of Windemere.  It’s strange starting from scratch again and I have no idea if established readers will follow me here.  All I can do is promote and hope for the best.

Of course, I need to set up a blog tour of some sort.  So, I’m going to see if anyone wants to lend a hand.  There are going to be two categories for this:

  1. I can send an HTML copy of the ‘Book is Live’ post that I’ll put on here.  This is simple, but I’ll admit that it doesn’t really garner a lot of comments and traffic outside of my own blog.  Still, if you want to help and can’t think of anything for #2 then this is the way to go.
  2. A personalized post for your blog on a topic that we can discuss below.  These might take a few extra days to write and get out, but they can create a lot of comments and traffic.  A lot of this depends on how my son’s Spring Break goes, but I might have more me time than I realized during that period.

Hopefully, this new series starts off with a big bang and can reach the same levels as Legends of Windemere.  It’s going to be a tough trick since it’s much more competitive on the Amazon lists and books just don’t sell like they used to.  Here’s hoping a strong blog tour will pave the way.

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.

  1. I’ll be happy to help.

    Do you ever write poems connected to your story? I ask as an idea for number two. I write poems myself, and sometimes share them, and they tend to be popular with my blog readers. I mean, I don’t have dozens of people commenting on my posts as a rule, but the couple of people who comment a lot are usually more likely to comment on my poems than my book release announcements, so… *shrugs* It’s an idea. Let me know what you think.

    Otherwise, if you have another idea, I’ll be happy to work with you on that. Or, if we can’t come up with anything that we agree might work, and you have time to work on, I’ll volunteer for number one.

    • I do occasional poems for my stories, but only for my blog. I gave one about the Dawn Fangs from a week or two ago. What were you thinking with the poems? Just one or several?

      • I thought you did, but wasn’t sure if I was remembering right…

        How many depends… I can do a couple of posts if you want to keep attention on your books for a bit longer. Basically, I was thinking one or two.

        My thought was that we’d post the poem at the top of the post… To grab the attention… Then go on to post something that says how it’s based on this book, and if you like the sound of the book it can be purchased in the places you can provide links for, and finish the post with your author details. It’s just an idea that came to mind when I was thinking of something different to do instead of the usual “buy this book” posts, but wanting to also make it something that might grab the interest of my blog readers.

      • I’ll have to think about it. The poem I already did covers the main plot without spoilers, so I’m not sure if I can come up with a second or third one.

      • No problem. If you can’t, but can think of something else that might work on my blog… Like if there’s something we can do with an animal character, if there is one… Shoot me an eMail and we can discuss it. Otherwise, as I said, I’ll be happy to put an announcement post up for you at least.

      • Sadly, no animal characters here. Didn’t really fit with the vampires. I’ll see if I can think of anything.

      • Just thinking. Would you want the poem I already did with the blurb?

        Like

      • Thought that was probably the case regarding animal characters. The whole vampire thing is tricky to work cuddly animals in to.

        Regarding using the poem you already wrote: that could work. Most of my readers probably didn’t see it when you posted it on your blog, so it would still be new to them.

      • Okay. I can send that and attach the blurb, sales info, and social media stuff to it. Short and simple might work.

      • If nothing else, at least we can say we tried something different. Plus, if I post it the Wednesday after you release, I can put it as my “Writer Wednesday” post, which may also help increase traffic (those posts don’t always get many comments – though the chances of comments tend to be better if a poem is involved – but they do get a lot of views, according to my stats).

      • Awesome. It might look a little odd with a poem and blurb, but I think that might be fairly eye-catching.

  2. Count me in. I can do either. How about the top ten things not to do with a vampire?

    Count me in, Charles. Whatever you come up with will be fine with me. If you would like an opposite top ten – i.e. ten things to do with a vampire – shoot.

  4. Count me in, Charles – the second option would be great – we all know the strengths and weaknesses of Vampires, so maybe a post on what calms or relaxes them (apart from a good meal 😄) – Music, knitting, painting, etc 😎

    I’d love to help…and I’m happy with whatever you’d like to do. Character interviews are always fun. 😀

  6. Count me in, Charles. Maybe some backstory or an excerpt might be a good way to go, but whatever works best for you.

    • Unfortunately, I don’t know when I’ll have the time. I’m doing one for Lisa Burton Radio, but we planned that a few weeks back. Right now, I’m getting maybe a day or two of rest between projects, so back and forths will be really delayed.
