The countdown begins… ten days until the official release date of THE LURE OF DEVOURING LIGHT. I guess if there’s anything more I need to do in advance of the book actually being out in the world, I’d make it happen soon.
So, what else remains?
This coming week, I’ll post a couple of blog entries, brief notes about each story in the book. Don’t worry, no spoilers are included, so it’s entirely safe to read before the stories.
I also intend to step up my efforts to promote the book. Ross Lockhart of Word Horde is doing an excellent job of spreading the word, getting review copies into the right hands (you saw the review in Publishers Weekly, right?), as well as submitting the collection to the editors of the various “year’s best” books. So on top of Ross’s efforts, I’ll be doing my own outreach.
I’ve been writing and publishing for a while, but this will be the first time I’ve had to make an organized effort to get people to pay attention to a book with my name on the cover.
