The Great and Fateful Book Launch: Part the First

So, my book Soulless is due on the shelves in 6 days, Amazon ships in 4 (there is a kindle edition), and a few brick & mortars around the world have already pipped the post!

I'm hoping to tap into my friends for a little assistance launching my chosen career. Remember, I'll never be asking for baby shower gifts, you could consider Soulless my first child - and cheep at the price!

If you'd like to help here are some options . . .

* Within the next 6 days you could mention Soulless in your blog, on facebook, twitter, or elsewhere. If you haven't read it, that's OK, just a nod to its release helps.

* If you have read it, please review it on Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Powells, Borders, Shelfari, WeRead, facebook book reviews, and the like. Some of these do not allow reviews until after the launch date. Detail and honesty is much appreciated, even a bad review is better than no review. For those of you who wrote a review in the past for your blog, just a cut and paste to a second location would do wonders.

* Interview me or host me for a guest blog?

* If you are planning to purchase online, please, please, please try to buy the book on Amazon the first day it's on sale (September 29, 2009) this will up me in their rankings. If you can't do that, or aren't willing to support Amazon, going into a brick & mortar store, or buying online from an independent bookstore on the Big Day, October 1, would also be very much appreciated.

Thanks to everyone for their help and support. This will be cross-posted. I will also post a reminder about online purchasing on September 29, and on brick & mortar purchasing on October 1.

Quote of the Day:
"Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with it is a toy and amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him out to the public."
~ Winston Churchill
