I didn’t finish what I wanted to post today. The last full week of school caused some time issues as I talked about yesterday. This does give me an opportunity to figure out a problem I have coming up for the July and maybe August.
By the end of June, I’ll be done with the scheduled Teaser Tuesdays. I’m going up to Ichabod Brooks and then . . . I don’t know. The release of War of Nytefall: Ravenous by Labor Day isn’t a sure bet, so I don’t want to start bombarding people with Nytefall teasers too early. Imagine if I did that for July and August only to have to stretch it to October or December. That will bring up a secondary issue I’ve got actually. So, I’m left wondering what to do.
Yeah, these posts are awkward and I tend to get most people saying ‘whatever you want to do’ in the comments. Sometimes I get a few good ideas and suggestions. After all, I’m posting to entertain and promote here even if it doesn’t get me anywhere. All in good fun and games. So, I’ve been thinking of the following:
- I can open up each Tuesday to promoting the books of others through July and maybe August. Not sure if anyone wants the spot.
- Character interviews for Nytefall. These don’t always go well because people haven’t read the books. Maybe I can jump it back to Legends of Windemere for July and then do Nytefall in August.
- So screw it and do Teaser Tuesdays for Nytefall. July would be one from each of the published works and then August would be the new one.
- Any big author questions that people might have.
This brings me to another challenge. If I’m not going to be hyping a book in August then I have no post ideas. I’m thinking I need some ideas to create a safety net and then I can just rescheduling them for September/October if I need to use August for promos. So, any topics that anybody would want on here? It can be anything in regards to writing from my own stuff to opinions on things to tackling sensitive topics or whatever. I know I’m asking for a lot, but most of what I come up with is either lame or something that I’m afraid will cause as much of a comments battle as the ‘perverted hero’ thing last year. With any luck, I won’t have to worry about this and the book will be on my to-do list. Fingers crossed here.
