You know that look Olympic torch runners get, just as they’re starting to approach the Cauldron, preparing to the light the flame that will shine over the “We get along so well!” best two weeks of television sports coverage/don’t call me because I’m watching the Olympics moment of epic-ness?
That’s the moment I’m envisioning I’m having right now.
I’m also envisioning that there’s theme music. I’ve narrowed it down to:
- From This Moment
- We Are the Champions
- Champion (by RuPaul–I sing this in my head every time something good happens)
- The Theme from Bonanza
Here’s what actuality would be playing if this moment had musical accompaniment:
- Flagpole Sitta
With Me Now is now available for you and all your friends to buy. Yes. Oh, Random Contemporary. Sniff. I remember when you were a hilarious distraction from the seriousness of my other books. Now, you’re a thing.
Shameless self-promotion: Click here to purchase With Me Now as an ebook. I don’t know how to sign and ebook for you, but if we can figure it out together, I will. And I’ll write something sassy.
Guys, this is the moment I’ve dreamed of! I dreamed about this moment more than dreaming of graduating college or getting a driver’s license or getting drunk at the zoo (wait, what?). Did I expect to be sitting here in a sports bra and my underwear after working out to p90x3? No. No I did not.
But here were are.
I did some research tonight on how to market and ebook or do a book tour and all that jazz (and all that jazz!). Here’s what I got out of it. Nothing. Nothing! Well, nothing that actually was useful to me. Most of it required spending money on Facebook Ads (and let’s be honest, my Facebook fan page is pretty crappy) or lots of complex charts and diagrams and a sentence I misread as “show them your Taser” instead of “show them your talent” and I thought, wow, that’s really taking marketing to the extreme….
….So look, here we are on my blog. I’ll show you my hand: I got nothing. I’ve got no elaborate marketing plan for a blog tour and frankly, I’m relying on the kindness of my fellow authors at Evernight to host me for a “surprise, it’s my book!” tour. But hey, I’ll make you a deal. If you purchase With Me Now and leave a review of what you thought about the book on the Evernight site or on Amazon by the end of July, you can win an awesome prize. In fact, I’ll let you pick which awesome prize you want. People, you need to do this. Somebody other than my mother needs to enter and win. She’s getting an ego.
Seriously, I’m so excited! I seriously hope you guys like With Me Now because I, though somewhat biased, think it’s pretty awesome. Let’s party and do crazy things. Book release day: It’s on!
