It’s always tough for a new author to get traction in the marketplace and make a connection with new readers, and really, all we want is to be read. It’s why we do what we do.
I’m on my third book now, which means I’m not exactly the new kid on the block any more, but I am still enough of a novice in the publishing world that I have to work at getting the word out. I blog, I tweet, I give away dozens of books here and on Goodreads – sometimes I feel like I am single-handedly keeping our tiny local sub-post office in business.
Yet each time I run a giveaway to promote a new release, especially now that we’re into the meat of the series, I get feedback along the lines of “I’ve never heard of you” or “I’ve never read any of your work”.
So I had an idea.
If people have never read any of my work, I should give them some to read. A tasting menu, if you will, of The Wild Hunt.
Step this way, messieurs et mesdames – your table is ready.
