Number one on my October To Do list was getting the vote out for The Goat for Undercover Book Reviews Pitch Perfect contest that week. I had a disappointing 8 votes, but it was still enough for me to win. So, now I have this badge:
And Bragging Rights, which is fun… and I have the potential for a book review there… or I should say that I “had” a chance for a book review. I agreed to do book reviews and interviews for UBR so that rules me out of the running. But that means more word of mouth for me.
Getting more blog interviews and reviews for October seems to have been limited to GingerNuts of Horror.I guess I wouldn’t want to be over exposed, eh?
I had wanted to hook up with the Horror Writer’s Guild; but that did not happen. The rules and bylines are still sending out some sort of anxiety vibe when I try to get close to them. So much for number 3 on my list.
Number 4 went better. I filled out the form for the BiWriter’s Book Awards, my publisher is sending them a physical copy this week, and I’m thinking that I may reach out to them for that column I’m starting for UBR. Watch this space for details.
It was number 5 on my October Things to do, but so far it’s the stuff I feel best about at the moment.
I’ve made a lot of headway with Project Wonderful, setting up advertizing for The Goat across the net. Viergatch, my cover artist, had taken pity on me and made some perfect ads for me and I’m getting clicks, I don’t know if I’m getting sales, but the whole thing is costing me less than a dollar a day.
