Of Interest:

Alex J. Cavanaugh is seeking support in his Thunderclap for Dragon of the Stars, scheduled to go out April 7. If you sign up, Thunderclap will automatically send out a Facebook status or Tweet at the pre-determined time with information on Alex's book release. It's super easy to do, and only goes out when it says it will.

Toi Thomas ,author of the Eternal Curse series, is looking to do video interviews with authors and book bloggers. As in, she wants to interview you! You can find more information on this, as well as other promotional services she's willing to provide on her blog, HERE. You can contact her via her contact page.

Any of these of interest to you? Anything to share? Have you tried out a Thunderclap yet, or been part of one? What did you think? Any publication news?

May you find your Muse.

  1. I've taken part in a couple of Thunderclaps. I think they were good for the author although I'd have to try it myself to be sure! Thanks as ever for the links. I'm working on a couple of submissions for links you provided before.

    1. Good luck with those submissions! This is only the third Thunderclap I've taken part of, but they're easy to do. I think it's an interesting idea. Plus, it's fun to see how far a reach people add to it.

    1. All over! I've joined LinkedIn groups, various groups on Facebook. Searches of my own while looking for markets. So on and so forth. It's just that I started sticking them in a spreadsheet according to deadlines as I came across them. They add up pretty quickly.
