More On The Underground Book Promotion

Tired of me flogging my book yet? Too bad. Lots more to come.

So–on November 11 at 10 AM Eastern, I’m featured on the Goddess Talks podcast talking about–wait for it–The Underground. It’s live, so you can hear me hem and haw and otherwise fuck up when I get asked an uncomfortable question. Not really. I’m pretty good at answering those. Guess all those years of public speaking were good for something.

If you can make it (it’s a holiday in the U.S. and you won’t be working so there’s no reason why you can’t) here’s the access info:

And I’ve got a virtual blog tour also starting on November 11 and running through the first week of December. For those of you who don’t know, a vbt is a promotional tool that replaces the fly-around-the-country book signing tours that authors–some authors, anyway–used to get from their publishers. Vbts are far more affordable (duh!) and without the exhaustion and jet lag. And, of course, you can book as many vbts with as many companies as you like. I know a few brave souls who put together tours without help but I’ve been told that unless you have LOTS of time and LOTS of patience–and I have neither–pay for it.

Here’s that schedule:

Cover Story

Contacted my designer for a new cover for The Underground. Actually, it’ll be a lot like the old cover, except better rendered. Jeez, that old cover is horrible! I just couldn’t make those people understand what I wanted. Hmm…kind of like the first cover for The Moreva of Astoreth.

So I sent the manuscript for the revised The Underground to the editor. We’ll see what she thinks of it. It shouldn’t require too much editing, but the key word here is shouldn’t. Everyone has their own style. Meanwhile, I’m going to leave it alone. I mean, really. I’ve some ideas for a couple more chapters, but I’ll write them separately, rather than dropping them into the existing MS. I think we really need some closure for Isadore Drummond, the morran elf. He’s got two chapters, so in the third, he either dies, or finds another child needing rescue from the riots. I don’t know–have to think about it. I mean, I hate killing off characters, especially since I consider them my friends. But if they have to go, then they have to go.

I also finished all my materials for the The Moreva of Astoreth blog tour. It’s running from September 7th through the 26th. Wow–six guest posts! Plus a top 10, plus interviews. I looked at the blog hosts, and found something rather funny. Deal Sharing Aunt is on the tour, and she’s going to do a review. She’s already done one, for the last blog tour. Gave me… Continue reading
