I’m really tired this evening so this won’t be a long post. Today I went out to East Coast FM in Bray, Co Wicklow, to do an interview about Devil in the Red Dress. It went well I think. Tomorrow afternoon it’ll be Phantom FM…I’m doing quite a tour!
This weekend we’ll find out what the first week’s sales have been like…nerve wracking stuff! It’s so frustrating to have to just sit back and wait…
I’ve been playing around with Twitter all day, the people following me must have been driven mad. The new possibilities in book marketing offered by the Internet have always fascinated me and now I have a book to market I want to try some of them out.
So there’s this blog for a start…as I’ve said before I had been running an anonymous blog until I started writing Devil. That’s when it seemed like a good idea to register my own domain and start blogging officially so to speak.
I also use Twitter. It’s an interesting idea to be able to tweet about interviews I’m doing or news about the book. Stephen Fry has used Twitter like this brilliantly. I’ve got a long way to go before I reach his numbers of followers – have to become a national treasure so!
Finally there’s the idea of a book trailer…that I’m busy scripting but it should be appearing on a Youtube channel near you sometime soon.
I remember when I was a teenager being sent out to drop around flyers for shows I was working on. I suppose this is simply the modern equivalent….
