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:

I Promise

CapClave is tomorrow. This time I promise to bring a camera. Whenever I go to cons, I always make that promise, but I rarely follow through. I think the last time I brought a camera to a con was a couple or three Balticons ago. When I come back from CapClave, I will post pictures.

I promise.

I also think I’ll start doing podcasts and posting them here. I’m doing two next year for Broad Universe, and I’ve already bought the mic. Personally, I think it’s a wonderful idea. Add some content besides my own rantings. Of course, reading from my works technically qualifies as rantings but we’ll just leave that minor point aside.

You, of course, will be the guinea pigs. But I promise not to post pictures of my paintings. I do reserve the right to change my mind if I come up with a good one.

Did I tell you I bought a couple of disco balls? No, the real thing. I’m going to hang them in my living room. One’s silver, the other gold. Saturday Night Fever, look out! Actually, the reason I bought them is because I wanted to be reminded of what Melera’s eyes look like. Hence the gold mirror ball.

Who’s Melera? She’s the alien star of my book, The Underground.

About that camera–better check the battery before I head out the door…
