Today is the day! No, I don’t mean Super Bowl (or, as I prefer to think of it, Superb Owl.) Rather, today is the day my short story collection is officially released. Many writers affectionately call it book birthday.
If you already have the book (because you received an advance review copy, got it as a Kickstarter backer, or are a time traveler) you would be doing me a huge favor if you post an honest review on your favorite book-buying web site (and especially Amazon, which uses an algorithm that accounts for the number of reviews each book has in their marketing of the title.)
Over the last week I’ve been working feverishly on typing up interviews, guest blog posts and arranging things like giveaways and podcasts, all meant to launch around the same time as the book releases. So rather than inundate you with each of these individually, here’s the collection of links for all of this various promotional stuff in one neat bow-tied package:
Giveaway at SF Signal: Enter for a chance to win one of two signed paperback copies of the collection.
Giveaway at GoodReads: Another opportunity to win a signed copy of the collection.
Interview at Darusha Wehm‘s blog (forthcoming tomorrow)
Listen to Icarus Falls podcasted at Toasted Cake: This is probably my strongest story published last year. If you haven’t read or heard it yet, I strongly encourage you to.
Listen to Requiem for a Druid podcasted at Far-Fetched Fables (forthcoming later this week)
The Art and Science of Anthology Editing – a long, detailed guest post at Locus Online. If you are interested in editing an anthology, or just want to know how the sausage is made, you might find this interesting.
There’s more to come in the next few days, including the release of the audio book!
