And so begins my blog tour

By the end of the next few weeks, you will know more about me than anyone other than my mother ever wanted to know. The thing is with a small press there is no other way to get the word out there other than to put it out myself. So forgive me the next few weeks.

I start with Dana King today.

Later this morning, visit Gerald So's book shelf.

I'm sure you and your book will benefit from the blog tour. You'll be appearing on my blog on June 11.

Patti, this is great! Good luck on your tour. I'll be following you.

Thanks for understanding, guys.

Patti, that was a really excellent Q & A, much better than the usual author puff piece I'm used to seeing. I credit both you and Dana for that.

By the way, my copy of the book is on the way. I hope it sells a zillion copies.

I just hope it sells enough to make Jason happy. He deserves to not lose money.

Though I have purchased the book, I checked the library and they have no listing for it. Why wouldn't it be in library systems? I'd assume your publisher at least puts books on the library advance lists. I went in and recommended they (the 3 counties we have around us) but there's no way to know if they will.

Because it is a little publisher and a little book. Only the big publishers automatically get their books into library systems. If you request it, it is possible it will be purchased. I cannot tell you how many books my library doesn't buy. Often they only buy a book after it becomes somewhat successful.

Cool. I'll check it out.

R.K. Robinson said...

I've asked all three county systems to get it. We'll see. I'm expecting the book in the mail tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by the blog yesterday, Patti. It was a pleasure having you, doubly so as I read your thoughtful answers.

(Thanks for the kind words, Jeff.)
