Oh nos! Promo. More excerpt goodness.

Camera is not working. Bah. Which means no update on the Drama in Kellandia. And for those who know me well -- yes, I did check the battery. ;-)

Hey, did you guys know my Author Page at the Simon & Schuster.com website has my entire chapter 1 up (and not just the half chapter found on Amazon)?

I'm going to write a post about promo next week. Wow, you guys. The amount of work this involves is way more time-consuming than I thought. It's important work, though, and I do have lots of fun answering interview questions and guest blogging. I think that might be my favorite part of promo, actually. I've gotten to 'meet' a lot of wonderful readers and writers. But add all that to writing press releases, sending out material, connecting with the local media, scheduling signings and stock signings, and ordering/designing swag, placing ads, updating personal sites, etc... it ends up filling my entire day.

The timing, however, is working very nicely for me. I don't have any deadlines on other projects yet, so I'm not having to split my time right now. (And this won't always be the case, I know -- thank god for small, serendipitous miracles!). And, though I try to write everyday, I'm allowing myself this time, this month before release, to do whatever is needed to get the word out. This is my first book, ya know? So I don't want to have any regrets. :-)

More later...

I can't believe your book will be out already! I'm going to make sure all my B&N has your books faced out :)

This is really exciting and I know you totally deserve all of this!!!!
