I’ve been thinking about this for the past week and I’ve decided to make a small change to my blog. I’m telling you up front because I don’t want anyone to think I’m trying to sneak promo in.
Here’s the thing. I’m an editor at Samhain Publishing (the Executive Editor, true, but this isn’t about that, it’s about the books I edit). I work hard on those books, I’m proud of them, and dang it, I like the books I’ve contracted. I like my authors. And I want to help their books do well. Traditionally, I’ve stayed away from a lot of promo here on the blog, because I’m like other blog readers–I don’t want to visit a blog that’s just about promo. But I also think I should take advantage of the fact that I do have readers who come back here regularly and who might not be as familiar with Samhain Publishing and our releases.
So once a week–on Wednesdays–I’m going to post excerpts from the books that I’ve worked on that have released on Tuesday (our release day is Tuesday). Not for every book releasing, just “mine” because I don’t want to overdo the promo 😉 Usually it’s just one book a week, sometimes it’s two and on very rare occasions, it’s more (like the 26th I have three for some reason). I’ll post the title and blurb and excerpt (a separate post for each book), as well as a link to the website where you can read another excerpt. I’ll try to still do original posts on Wednesday as well, but if you don’t have any interest in promo, feel free to skip my blog on Wednesdays but that’s what you’ll (mostly) find on that day.
