Setting Up Promotion for No Bells

Anytime you have a new book coming out, you must get busy figuring out promotion.

Because I was going to do my own blog tour, awhile back I contacted different bloggers I know and asked if they'd be willing to host me on my tour for No Bells. As I received affirmative replies I lined up the dates. I also figured out a contest to hold on the tour. I asked each tour host what they'd like me to write about--and then I did it. Of course I had a standard blurb and bio to add to each post.

I borrowed an idea from Pat Browning to use different photos of me for each blog, in most of them I'm at some kind of promotion event.

I've ordered business cards with the cover on one side and information about the book on the other. I plan to hand them out at the two conferences that are coming up soon: Epicon in San Antonio and Left Coast Crime in Sacramento. I'll have other books for sale at these events, but I want people to know about the new book coming.

Some of the events I've got lined up are a library talk at the Kingsburg Library on April 19 at 6:30 p.m. and another at Gillis Library on Satruday, May 12th at 3 p.m.

That's it for now, I'll be adding more events as time moves on.

Great post on what needs to get done. I'm looking for a photo of us. The only one is a group shot of Oak Tree authors. That was a great idea Pat had. Might have to steal it.

A different photo for each blog event sound unique. I might just run over to San Antonio during the Epicon since it's not far from me.
Ricky, there is going to be an e-Fiesta on Saturday afternoon with book signings and I think it's right near the hotel which is across from the Alamo.
Wonderful blog. Thanks for sharing. Keep posting please.
