Good day fellow Scriveners, friends, and any rodent-like creatures with bushy tails, who might be reading my blog,
I’m breaking the rules. Two posts in one day. But I felt disconnected. I promoted two books this week on Wednesday and Friday, but you never heard from me. Not really.
A big part of the reason I started blogging was to help promote my fellow friends and I don’t think I’ll stop. I might just be more selective? Not sure about that. What do you feel about the promotion? Has there been too many in general on the blogosphere?
Possibly. But if it’s a book I might like, then I’m glad. I’m really looking forward to reading Ali Cross’s book, BECOME. And that is fully because of the blog tour and reading the sample chapter. Loved the writing. Loved the cover design.
What do you think? Can there be too much promotion?
On a different note, my house is under somewhat of an emergency. One I don’t like being in. Squirrels have invaded our basement. I’ve seen the shine of the green army helmets on their heads. I’ve seen them in a huddle outside, laughing at me as they make their evil plans. I know they plan to jump on my head if they catch me trying to grab some frozen green beans so my kids get their daily allotment of veggies, because I don’t believe in lying to our pediatrician.
But I might have to start lying soon.
And I’ll close on a third random note by saying there is a right and a wrong to end a book, as in cliffhangers. Some work extremely well. Some are just attempts to keep interest into the next book.
What marks the difference in a great cliffhanger for you? And did you know that squirrels in New England love camo pants?
