Excellent pointers to promote TTT posted 13 March 2005 in Author Q & AExcellent pointers to promote TTT by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

Excellent ideas, one and all. I haven't checked out the TTT thread yet, but I can tell you the single biggest obstacle already: ME. <!-- s:roll: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_rolleyes.gif" alt=":roll:" title="Rolling Eyes" /><!-- s:roll: --> I've drawn up many a 'to-do' list like this, but I just don't seem capable of the multitasking required to diligently execute them. I am a true absent-minded monomaniac (and it causes me endless troubles teaching as well, believe me!).

For instance, I spent alot of time with Larry over at wotmania last summer, doing my best over the period of several weeks to take advantage of all the different opportunities to interact with the most excellent folks at that board, and I would be surprised if I finished a dozen pages that I've kept from that period. I think the time was well spent - very well spent - but it brought home to me yet again my inability to write while preoccupied.

This is why I gotta be big: to be able to afford the assistant the I need to get big! <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Regardless, once the draft of TTT is out of my hands, I will definitely revisit all of this and run it by my publicist. I've been arguing the importance of the web for two years now, and I think there's already big changes happening in the way books are marketed - ways you may all be rolling your eyes at in the near future! At Time Warner, they actually had a meeting to discuss what I did with Larry! (creepy, when you think about it).

The content of the website will be updated with material from all three books sometime in the near future... Let me get back to this <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: --> view post
