Hi all. We’re pluggin away trying to increase awareness of the book, Crumbling Walls, ahead of its official June 1 release. Of course, as you may well know, it has been and still is available as an eBook on Amazon, barnesandnoble.com and the Apple iTunes bookstore. And, eventhough it is also available to order online at the major online retailers, it won’t be shipped until June 1. At any rate, this post has more to do with some of the successes we’ve had in our promotional efforts.
First, wordpress’s very own TheNovelReviewer (http://thenovelreviewer.wordpress.com/) has agreed to read the book and post a review on his blog and various other outlets. I just received an email from him today and he indicated he has already started reading Crumbling Walls and will hopefully have a review up soon… maybe in the next week or two. I’ll certainly keep you all posted on this one. While you’re at it, go check out his other reviews on his blog. He’s a good guy.
Second, I’ve spoken to the Book Editor of the regional newspaper here in Lancaster, PA and she has agreed to write an article and/or review for the paper. This is exciting because this is not just a small local, city paper. The New Era/Intelligencer gets distributed thoughout this region. And while I understand Lancaster County is not a huge urban area, this is still an exciting development. Her plan is to wait until closer to June 1 and write an article that can line up with the release and possible book signing/promotional events here in this area.
So, things are moving along. I’m happy to see progress, but am a little anxious for June 1 to role around. I’m not one for wishing time away as I realize how short the time we have already is, but I will admit that I will be checking the days off between now and the official release. Thanks everyone for following our journey. Hopefully, things are just getting started for us.
Oh, by the way, if you’re like TheNovelReviewer and would be willing to write a review of our book for your blog please get in contact with me. I’d love to talk to you.
