For the past few days, I've been sitting in my office surrounded by the things I need for promotion for my upcoming BOOKPLATE SPECIAL. Thousands of bookmarks, postcards, bubble envelopes, stamps, labels and lists and lists of addresses (most in disarray, despite the fact I've been working on them off and on for months).
And now I realize -- oops -- I ought to do a blog tour, too.
I must be out of my mind. I try (often don't make it) to post here five days a week, plus I blog for Writers Plot (Tuesdays) and The Cozy Chicks (Saturdays). Sometimes it's hard to come up with a blog posts. For this blog, I feel like I'm hanging out with friends (Hi, y'all!), but for WP and CC I feel a bit more pressure to be . . . well, ON. And now I need to be ON a few guest blogs during November to push the book. So I guess I should start contacting people with blogs and asking to guest post.
I've have LOTS of blogging friends, so it's not like I'll hear "NO WE DON'T WANT YOU," but the thing is . . . once I have a confirmation, I've got to write the blog posts.
Actually, I've often thought that I had nothing of particular interest to say to warrant being a guest anywhere, but Bookplate Special is a different kind of book. It has two themes that I should be able to mine for lots of blog posts, so that's good. But we're back to . . . writing the posts.
