Gearing up the Promo for Dispel the Mist

Even though I've not yet seen the galley proofs for my latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery, Dispel the Mist, I'm planning the promotion for it.

The cover is great, I'm hoping to get a .jpg of it soon so I can let people see it.

The book is supposed to be available by September. I have not actually set the date for the launch party here in Springville, but it'll be in October and that's because other events became available for September and of course I signed on.

I got invited to the Nipomo Library to be a part of their parking lot sale--which will have all sorts of things on display besides books. I'll promote like heck though in hopes that people will look for me there. That's Saturday, September 12th from 9 to 3.

The Porterville Library called and asked if I'd like to come and speak for them, so I'll be doing that on Saturday, September 19 at 2 p.m.

Our family is having a reunion in Barstow at the Holiday Inn Express, the one right off the freeway, not the one in Barstow proper, on the 25th and 26th, so on the 26th, I'm having a mini-booksigning at 2 p.m. either in the lobby or the room we've got for the reunion. I'll have a sign up to point the way.

On Sunday, October 4th, we'll be in San Luis Obispo for the Central Coast Book and Author Festival from 9 to 5--it's right next to the Mission. There's more in October, but that's enough for now.

I will also be doing a virtual book tour in October. Those are a lot of fun.

And that's my promo plan so far.
