No, It Really Is Me...

I know! Third time this week... what is the world coming to? Oh, that's right. (2012: Insert doomsday music here)

Just kidding. I really don't believe the whole "The World Is Going To End" crap. Sorry, I just don't buy it.

However, I do believe that because of all the hype, there are people out there who will end their lives or the lives of others because of it. The world, as we KNOW it, will end. But not the world itself.

Let's just call it a cleansing of the Shallow End of the Gene Pool and leave it at that. Like when all those people committed suicide when Michael Jackson died.



I still have a tentative release date of May (??) for my first book, Adversarius.

Gawd, I'm getting super excited about that!!!

I need to start rounding up and making appointments for my virtual blog tour soon, don't I? I have a list somewhere of who has offered to allow me to pilfer their blog for a day. I'm trying to assess a couple of things.

1 ~ Do I need a "host/hostess"?

2 ~ Do I need a theme?

3 ~ Do I include a giveaway?

I will do my best to set up a "Tour Package". Those of you who offer to let me drop by on my hop, I'm hoping to hook you up with a "copy" of the book. It will be an e-book, of course. Print may come later, I'm still not sure about that. I'd also like to have a little banner or something. I'm sort of waiting to see what my cover will look like first. Woot!

Gosh, it's getting close isn't it? Any help, advice or suggestions will be appreciated. I have a couple of links to go check out that I received last time I asked about this.

Thanks everyone! And have a super weekend.

The first part made me laugh!
Blog tour - yes, select some good hosts, and a mixture of guest posts and interviews. A giveaway or two is good. And no you don't need a theme.
I'm booked into July (scary, huh?) but you know I'll do a big shout-out for you when the book is released!

Congrats on the upcoming release. I have one in May, too. May 7th. If you want to swap guest posts some time, let me know. :)

I haven't come up with my posts, yet, but am thinking about it.

Lol, Alex. Wow, July?! That's awesome!

Thanks M Pax! I'd love to swap some guest posts. I'd also be happy to post when you do your tour.

Joel's posts always have some useful information.

Good luck, and have fun!

I'm looking forward to your blog tour, Mel. It's going to be awesome!

I really wish the Mayans had just put a "etc...." at the end of their Long Count calendar so the spaceheads wouldn't be all up in arms about the end of the world.

Hey Mel! Count me in the blog tour! I am really happy for you that your book will soon be out...and I already know how good it is. Just give a holler when you want to hop onto my blog...okay?
