I talked to my editor today and it looks like the ARCs will be ready in early May. So I should be able to start moving forward with the blog tour in April. I’ve got about 30-40 bloggers who expressed interest—either through comments or e-mails. So now I’ve just got to figure out a grass roots way to reach another 100+ bloggers. Maybe word of mouth will spread once I actually start signing people up. Thanks for the Librarything idea. As soon as I have a book available, I’ll join as an author and see if there is more interest there. I assume Shadow Mountain will do the early review copies there as well, like they did with “The 13th Reality.”
I also have a meeting with the art department to discuss my cover on Friday. It’s like getting a little hint at what might be wrapped under the Christmas tree. Can’t wait!
Since several people have asked me about my publisher and the process of selling a book, I was thinking maybe we could do a Q&A with Lisa, the acquisitions editor at Shadow Mountain. If you’ve got any questions you’d like her, post them here and I’ll see if I can get her to answer them before the weekend. She’s pretty busy with a lot of projects, but I’ll see what I can do.
