My blog tour bas been to a few stops so far.
Jen Wylie had me over first, with my post on How do you know you’re a writer? Not that I really know, but this was how I found out.
At Eva’s Sanctuary I expressed my love of monsters.
At Tea Time with Julie Campbell I discussed my use of creative dreaming to get the story written.
I became the first male guest author at Julia Barrett’s blog, where naturally I talked about Gizmos in Romance. Because I’m a guy. (Actually I try to live according to those wonderful words from Say Anything: “Don’t be a guy. The world is full of guys. Be a man.”)
At the Vivid Sentiments blog I pointed out how monsters look different depending on the genre I’m looking at them with. Which is not always a good thing. I had one lady who volunteered some promo time on her blog, who asked for an excerpt. Since her blog was mostly romantic suspense I tried to come up with one that focused on that angle of St. Martin’s Moon. I attached it, if you want to see it. It’s interesting how the story looks different depending on the genre you look at it with. I wonder if the query letter I never wrote would have been easier to write if I’d done the synopsis from some other perspective.
I was told that there is a site with an application on it for getting a count of the number of books, so I entered the URLs for the stories I have on Amazon, in the hope of seeing some movement in my numbers. I figured I would need about 600-1000 volunteers to get my books and give me a good sample size. Then I thought about it a little more and realized that I don’t have too many places where all the links to all of my stories are gathered. So I’m going to put them all here. I hope you don’t mind.
Ex Libris (commando librarians!)
Steampunk Santa (bringing Santa’s workshop into the 19th century)
Bite Deep (the vampires get what they always wanted for Christmas, a savior of their own!)
Chasing His Own Tale (the only thing worse than a story that doesn’t talk to you is one that does!)
Boys Will Be Boys (Cyber-pirates…sort of.)
Off The Map (No good deed goes unpunished.)
Unbinding the Stone
A Warrior Made
Monday I’ll be appearing at Reba Foote’s blog, and I have no idea what I’ll be talking about there. Hopefully something will occur to me today. For an author, ‘The End’ is just the beginning.
