I've got just a few more queries pending. Considering I haven't gotten so much as a partial request, (]let alone a full, offer of representation, publishing contract which could be a matter of years), I'm not likely to get one any time soon. This book is NOT going to be thrown in the ocean. I enjoy it, friends enjoy it, an exacting critique group enjoys it and so do 500+ subscribers who've heard the first three chapters. I hope that making this available to even one more person can make them feel alive…….and BE alive. The proceeds are going directly to cancer research.
With the worst/best timing, Jennifer and john had already been planning to visit me so they've taken on the grunt work while I dictate my needs. We're setting this up as a softcover, e-book, and audio book. I'm not sure how much of the audio I can do but Will Ross has already volunteered to do some ass kicking.
Jennifer's got the video blog announcement on her computer and we're ironing out Lulu.com's counterintuitive formatting issues. The book will be available for purchase at Lulu.com–in which case a greater percentage of proceeds will go to research–Amazon and it has the capability of being purchased for brick and mortor stores like Barnes and Noble, just get into the store and make the request. I understand if you want to read the book first before putting in that effort so just email us and we can send a larger sample.
Jennifer is the head of our street team and the go-to girl for those who want to help so we'll post her contact info ASAP. For now, send anything to mine, she's got accsss to it.
If you have any promotional ideas, let us know! Some ideas so far
- press releases in local (to you!) stores
-print out your favorite quote with the website address and stick it inside a book or games or movies etc that might relate (7th Son, Heroes novels, X-men books or comics, Iron Man stuff, TMTNT, Blade
-Get creative–draw the characters, make a diorama of a scene, be eye-catching a fun, make pins
-Challenge people…..whose side are you on? The doctors or the patients?
-Write fanfiction! I'll feel like I've made it when there's slashfic on fanfiction.net ;)
-Go around videoblogging…. ask people what they'd do if their touch killed people but so did their reputable doctor? What other questions could you ask? Go for tings that are open-ended
-Send us your creations so we can post them!!
