Well, the giveaway is almost over. Only hours left. There are almost 900 folks requesting a copy, which makes me feel pretty good, that there’s interest out there. One young man asked that if he doesn’t win (which he probably won’t) that I send him a signed copy. My first thought was to say “you buy it, send it to me, and I’ll sign it.” Then I thought, what the hey? It won’t kill me to send one book. Besides, it’s not like I don’t have a half-ton of them here. And it’s one less I have to store.
In other news, I’ve almost decided to rewrite The Underground before I finish the sequel. It keeps knocking at my head. Maybe I can work on both at the same time. It’s not going to take much to revise The Underground. Well, I don’t think it’s going to take much. Anyway, I’ve put out feelers as to whether there’s a service that can turn the book into a Word document. It’s a big book–457 pages–so I’m going to have to put out some real bucks for that. Better do it while I have the money, you know?
As for the radio interview, The Authors show broadcasts on 5 channels, and I’ll be on number 5. It starts at 12:01 AM Eastern, and runs for 24 hours. So don’t be alarmed if you think you’ve missed it. As long as you tune in on August 10, you won’t. And I’m almost certain I’m going to buy their marketing package. The host, a marketing expert, is sending me an analysis of what I need to do to market. I have a feeling it’s a lot–most of my answers to his questions were “no.” What I’d really like, though, is for someone to do all that stuff while I work at my day job and write. They have marketing packages they sell. The package I’m thinking of buying runs for two years. I just get tired of the marketing. I want to write, but I’m so brain-dead from marketing that I can’t. Oops–whining again. Sorry.
At any rate, here’s the link for the Goodreads giveaway:
