ADD YOUR OWN SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION!
*Translation: The first time I saw you, you were pointing a gun at me.
So begins the interview with Jasper, the dog in my first release, SONGS OF THE HEART.
Since I won't be blogging again between now and my release date, I'm taking this opportunity for shameless self promotion. (I sure miss Wavy's Tuesday blogs that listed chapter members' accomplishments and upcoming events!)
Starting at midnight on April 4 I'm celebrating the release of my first book with a cyber release party. Every 4 hours, I'll post a new interview with characters from SONGS OF THE HEART and draw another name for a basket of goodies relating to that character. No, you won't get half-chewed shoes for Jasper's basket!
All this leads up to the grand prize drawing at 8:00 p.m. in a final interview with the hero and heroine. More details are available on my Web site at www.genenevalleau.com.
I have to admit I'm fairly new to e-books. However, since my first book won't be available in print version until May, I'm learning! The instructions say obtaining an e-book is as easy as (1) choose a format, (2) download, and (3) double-click to read. OK, I know I have to pay for the book somewhere in there, but I like the idea of buying a book without having to change out of my sweats and making myself presentable in public.
Am I going to give up my paper books? Naw -- I'll order some of those also when they are released in May. In the meantime, I'm broadening my horizons with e-books, and I'll also be able to get my book on CDs.
How about you? What writing accomplishments do you want to share and what upcoming events do you have planned? Please share so I don't feel totally selfish. :)
