Writers. Myth goes we’re a solitary bunch. Hermit-like hunched over our manuscripts. Emerging only at book launches. As Light would say, ‘Bollocks‘. Without a reader, books are merely words on a page. There’s no emotion. No connection. And no point.
Tomorrow my month long book tour kicks off. It’s a way for me – here in Oxford, England – to connect with readers all around the world. To chat, discuss and hand out exclusive sneak peeks. Blood Shackles is released on 1st November. To pre-order it now click here.
There’s going to be giveaways (the chance to win $50 Amazon card), reviews, interviews and excerpts.
Then there’s the guest blogs… Here’s a little taste: ‘The Soundtrack of My Blood Life,’ ‘Inside the Mind of a Slave,’ and ‘How to Cook Like a Vampire.’ Intrigued? Come on, that last one..? Diamond, seriously.
But the real secret to a good blog tour becoming great? I could’ve written War and Peace but it wouldn’t matter. If none of you folks turned up, shared, liked, commented and turned it from an event into an event.
Click here to see where I’ll be each day. I’ll update Facebook daily too. Follow me on Twitter, RT and use #BloodShackles to spread the word.
Post pictures of yourself with the novel on Facebook. Ask me anything you like – I double dare you. Tell your dog – it’s Halloween, he
may be listening.
The Blood Club is coming. How far would you go to free your family?
