Yet again I promise myself I will remember to make regular posts here, especially since I have a long list of books I really do want to tell people about - and then I get sidetracked, diverted, sent off course...
But Ashamet is almost out there at last. In fact I'm told that one sneaky person over here [the UK] has managed to buy an early copy on the American site, so they have it almost the same day I received 'advance' copies.
I've now signed three, yes three, hard copies for different buyers too, so it's definitely out
And to be fair I haven't been entirely lazy. I was taking part in a Blog Tour.
Interesting experience. I had exchanged info about Ashamet with a few people over here who had mentioned or included it on their blogs or their facebook entries etc. But my publisher has a publicist, who was in touch a while ago about a proper tour, ie appearing as a guest blogger on about a dozen other sites interested in my kind of book. What was interesting was how different the sites were in their approach. some asked for a short essay - easy - others wielded a daunting list of questions, as long as two pages. And one even asked for answers from the character in the book instead of the writer. That, as you'll guess, was fun, especially becoming Ash for the duration.
I'll come back later with a list of the sites I know about, for anyone who fancies trolling for the various posts. No two alike.
