I have the most awesome friends.

My friends have been so supportive helping me promote ‘Becoming Death’ over the last month, from sharing it on their social media connections, buying copies in book stores, organising book tours and taking my book to conventions they have all done their part. This post is a thank you and a way to highlight the amazing things they are doing for me.

Alisa helped out by getting a website she works with, called PopULove, to cover my book and allow me to make a playlist. Trying to make a soundtrack for my own writing was so fun but really difficult. Check out my song choices and let me know what you think. Did I miss anything you would have included?

Faye is organising a blog tour for my book for the week of August 17th- August 23rd (my birthday week), she does this for a living and has a real talent for engaging for authors and bloggers. She already has some bloggers planned but if you’d like to sign up to the tour there is a free e-book copy in it for you. The link is below:

Devin is going to the Great8BitLive con in Grand Rapids, MI on Saturday to sell items from her online jewellery store, Nerdy Robot: http://nerdyrobots.storenvy.com/ and promote my book through postcards, sample copies and posters at her stall.

Kris is featuring an author interview with me soon on his blog, 4 thousand words: http://www.4thousandwords.blogspot.co.uk/ .

Many of my friends have also signed up to support my Thunder Clap campaign but I’ll need way more help if we are going to make it to 100 people by Saturday night. Please consider signing up for free here: https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/28332-becoming-death-book-launch .

Lastly, the official online launch party for my book will take place on July 11th from 9:00-10:30 on my author Facebook page. Come join in and maybe win a free copy of Becoming Death. https://www.facebook.com/events/866908590064052/

Thanks again everyone for doing their part to support me as an indie author.

Thunder Clap campaign and book launch online party

Hi everyone

I have two pieces of exciting news.

I am running a Thunder Clap campaign to get the word out about my book. The idea behind Thunder Clap is to try to make a message and have it tweeted on Twitter or posted on Facebook so it creates a trending topic for more people to see. You can support my Thunderclap campaign by signing up to share my message on your social media accounts. It only takes a moment to sign up and it will help my book sales. You can sign up here http://thndr.it/1SXvMYQ .

I am also planning an online book launch party on July 11th from 9:00-10:30pm UK time for Becoming Death on my author Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/866908590064052/ .

There will be book giveaways, discussions, quizzes, and a chance to ask me questions about the book, self-publishing or my writing process. I would love to see all of you online. Please also invite anyone else you think would enjoy the party.
