Whatever 2011 Shopping Guide Schedule: Get Ready to Promote
Now that it’s officially December, I’m going to get my Ho Ho Ho on and announce that next week, each week day, I am going to post a specific entry for authors, creators and others to promote books, creations and charities. Why? Because I have a big damn readership, full of people who are looking for interesting stuff to give (and get!) for the holidays. And because, you know, I shop for the holidays myself. I could use an idea or two. Or three. Or many.
To give you folks time to prepare, here’s the schedule of what to promote and by whom:
Monday December 5: Traditionally Published Authors — If your work is being published by a publisher a) who is not you and b) gets your books into actual, physical bookstores on a returnable basis, this is your day to tell people about your books. Includes comics/graphic novels.
Tuesday December 6: Non-Traditionally Published Authors — Self published? Electronically published? Or other? This is your day.
Wednesday December 7: Other Creators — Artists, knitters, jewelers, musicians, and anyone who has cool stuff to sell this holiday season, this will be the day to show off your creations.
Thursday December 8: Fan Favorite Day — Not an author/artist/musician/other creator but know about some really cool stuff you think people will want to know about for the holidays? Share! Share with the crowd!
Friday December 9: Charities — If you are involved in a charity, or have a favorite charity you’d like to let people know about, this is the day to do it.
Any questions? Leave them in the comments. Note I’m running about this afternoon so I may not respond immediately but I’ll get through the thread eventually.
