Jeez, when I say it like that, I’m all nervous. No wonder I’ve been dwelling on all the things I have to get done before it happens. I was sidestepping the whole OMG! stage.
The next three weeks are a carefully constructed, haphazard mass of me out all over the Internetz. It begins today.
I suppose I could call it a “blog tour” but it’s not an organized visit of related places, so much as me popping up all over, yelling “Boo! Buy my book!” and moving on to the next location.
Today I’m visiting Kristin at My Bookish Ways where she asks me all sorts of interesting questions. I tried very hard to be a grownup. Come see the interview! There’s also a wonderful review of my book there.
In case you can’t get enough secret information about me, a second interview with me went up this morning from Melissa over at Lily Element. Also, she’s giving away a digital copy of Monster in My Closet, so if you don’t have yours yet, be sure to enter.
If you’re not following my publisher Carina Press on Facebook, you totally should. They’re offering an extended, 20% excerpt of Monster in My Closet in case you still haven’t decided whether you want to buy it. It’s only for another week, though, so hurry. In addition, they’re posting fun facts and trivia about me and about the book–stuff you can’t find anywhere else. Or you can follow me on Facebook, because I’m sharing most of what they’re posting about me. And really, if you’re not, why aren’t you following me already? Go! Follow! (Please?) I’ll wait.
And while we’re talking social media outlets, this week I’ll be posting book quotes on Twitter. Mostly silly stuff meant to make you feel like you MUST know what’s going on in the scene. So, follow me over there and see me look awkward at the Twitter cocktail party. Bring a tray of bacon-wrapped shrimp, if you don’t mind.
I think that’s it for the moment. No, no it’s not. Last week was a total wash on the blogging front, so I didn’t even manage to stop in on Wednesday to tell you I was at the Confabulator Cafe. Though, really, if you’ve been coming here for any time at all, you should have known to look for me there. Yeah, that’s right. I just put the blame on you for my not posting where I was last week. Bad writer. Bad.
So. Confabulator Cafe last week. We were asked about the best and worst writing advice we’d ever received. If you missed it, my post is here: The Odds of Getting My Homework Done.
Now I think I’ve covered everything. I’ll be back Wednesday with the next clue to the R.L. Naquin Scavenger Hunt Tour.
See you real soon!
