Here's all I do to promote my writing: Blog, Twitter, a Facebook fan page (which I never use...), the free ad at Critters Writers Workshop, and working on having a lot of work available for convenient purchase.
Not particularly shameless, but it also doesn't distract me from what I'm supposed to be doing. Once I get these books up, I might do a little bit more self-promotion (guest posts, review copies, etc.). Just for the experiment.
I'm sure at least one eBook trailer will be spawned. It'll be a video of me talking on Skype with a suspiciously enthusiastic person who looks like me wearing a mask, to wit:
"So How Do You Get Your Ideas, David!?!"
"From the tears of Angels."
That's a good synopsis of the book, I guess. And a sweet new title and/or theme song!
From the tears of Angels/I left you yesterday...
I knew you wanted to talk/But I had nothin' to say.
If only you'd get better, then I'd be happy to stay...
From the tears of Angels/I don't want to see you cry.
(Bonus points to the first person to notice the new thing I've managed to figure out how to do with the blog design!)
Speaking of self-promotion, cover art is pretty important. My cover art is serviceable, but I'd really like to take it up a notch at some point. Trawling the internet I find a lot of great artists and I'm pretty sure there'll be no problem finding an artist who's willing to make an awesome cover. For money!
Of course, that'll be when this Experiment enters Phase II: Making Money.
