Weekend in LA

I had hoped to bang out pages on both the flight down and the flight back, but we had a plane change in Portland that really jammed my flow.  The flight back was non-stop and I'm +600 words or so.  I'd like to get back to it in a bit, but I'm going to have to sync the draft over from the iPad and I'm going to hope that I don't have any issues...

In other news,  I had some great conversations with my friends who run a web publicity company and it make me re-think how much effort I'm going to have to put into marketing the books when they are ready.  There's no doubt that it's going to be a big job.  I'm glad I'm starting early, as I'm going to need a media list to start pestering both pre and post launch.

Possible marketing strategies include:
Excerpts
Art previews
Book "trailer"
Interviews
???

I've all ready been following like madman on Twitter and have cleaned up my online presence there.  I have to remember to tweet more often about authoring and less often about software.  You can't just write a book, you also have to build a mini media empire!

    So true! My recommendation is to check out novelpublicity.com. Their blog alone is worth its proverbial weight in gold for recommendations about generating online buzz for your novel.

At least a black swan can get me going.
