I Might as Well Go Stand on a Street Corner--The Lurid Business of Book Promotion

"Hey baby,
wanna buy a book?"
Stop what you're doing and hop over to Book & Trailer Showcase. I wrote a rather blunt essay on why we as authors should take our marketing efforts off the crowded streets of the social networks. You can comment there if you wish. You may have to click on the actual blog post title to see the comment box.

Here's the linky:

In other news, I'll be out of town for a few days. My niece is getting married and we're having a little vacation after that. I've almost successfully packed for five people. Phew.

I've had no more May Flash Fiction (MFF) submissions yet, so if you are still working on yours, go ahead and send when ready. I'll post again next week if I get any more in. Click on the flasher in the top right sidebar if you haven't heard about this contest. The deadline is May 29! Last night, I finally thought of a good prize, but I'm keeping it secret for now. Hee hee.

And still thinking of good content for June. I know of one goblin and his brothers who will get some attention for sure! Click HERE for a preview.

Until next's my girls' last day of school and summer is right around the bend. I hope you all have a great weekend!



  1. Congrats to your niece. I hadn't heard about the contests yet, but sad to say I wont actually be able to write anything for it because I already have so many other responsibilities. I'll be on the look out for more from you though. :) Have a great weekend and vacation time.

  2. Mysti very good post! I agree with your wholeheartedly.

  3. Yestегday, whіle I was at woгk,
    mу cousin stole my iphone and testеd
    to see if it can suгvive a 30 foot drop, just ѕο she can be a yοutube sensatiоn.
    My apρle ipaԁ iѕ now ԁestroyеd anԁ she haѕ 83 viеws.

    I know thiѕ is totallу οff tοpic but I
    had to share it with someone!

  4. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to
    start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Look at my web blog: quiz machines
