We’re all elbow-deep in the holiday season, and in this hiatus between visiting relatives, indoor and outdoor decorating, cooking, shopping, and binge drinking… I thought I’d take a moment to outline my plans for the first of the year.
To begin with, the shiny people over at Full Moon Bites are orchestrating a blog tour for The Curse Merchant. I’ll be doing guest posts on other blogs, and will be returning spots on my blog in kind. I have a couple authors lined up already who I think will provide some interesting insights!
Since exposure for the novel will be on the swell in January (and doesn’t THAT just sound filthy?), I’m planning a couple additional events to launch in tandem.
The first is something I’ve mentioned previously… I’ll be releasing a short story prequel to the Curse Merchant (working title “Good Fences”… though I might actually choose a better name once editing is done) for free on Amazon and Smashwords. Though sample chapters of Curse Merchant are available, I felt it would be beneficial for a prospective reader to have a bite-sized story ready to consume, so they can get a feel not just for how I write, but for how I tell a story.
Second, I’ll wrap up January with a week-long series on this blog wherein I will be posting photographs in and around the Baltimore area of the real-world locations which inspired or exemplify the settings in The Curse Merchant. So if you haven’t read it yet… run over to one of the online retailers and snag a copy so you’ll be able to play along at home!
That’s it for now… I missed Cyber Monday by a few miles and have some shopping to execute. Stay safe and sane my friends!
