The Shell Game
I guess I may be over-committed to my cover art, but I just ordered 100 gold(-ish) Easter eggs. I plan to fill the eggs with ads/coupons for Baker’s Dozen. The coupon will be good for Smashwords, but links to both SW and the Kindle Store will be in there. And maybe cheap candy…I haven’t decided. I figured a little something to separate mine from the dozens of pieces of paper might translate into a sale or three. Yes, this means I’ll be carrying around a bag of eggs like a delinquent on Halloween. If you see me, ask for an egg,
I’ll also do a little trolling for reviewers at LibertyCon. I want to get a couple people to read and review Baker’s Dozen. I’m not chasing Locus or anything, just some bloggers with little web traffic and a track record of reviewing stuff that would be willing to share the review on Amazon and Smashwords. If that describes you and you’d be interested in writing a brief, fair review of my collection, zip me an email. Reviewers will of course get their digital copy for free from Smashwords.
[Be warned: I will be screening my reviewers prior to dealing out free copies. Not that I’m looking for favors or bias, but I don’t want to risk exposing myself to illiterate reviews from readers that don’t understand the genre and just wanted something free. If I can’t find a track record of reviews, I won’t be likely to shell out a free copy. But asking can’t hut, I guess.]
