Excellent pointers to promote TTT posted 15 March 2005 in Author Q & AExcellent pointers to promote TTT by Aldarion, Sorcerer-of-Rank

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: -->[/quote:ps1smaaz]

Sorry, Scott, that's my first reaction to reading this. I agree with you about everything said above, And Time Warner having a meeting to discuss what we did? Pardon the language, but Holy Shit! <!-- s:o --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_surprised.gif" alt=":o" title="Surprised" /><!-- s:o --> Never knew they paid that close of tabs to what we do over there. It'll be interesting to see if anything came of that meeting, but wow, that's a real ego-booster, yes? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

And to get back to the subject - if you ever want/need any promotional materials publicized on wotmania, be sure to email me - I'll get it done ASAP. Even the little things, such as the cover art and the release dates, those will be big items. And of course we'd love even a copy of the synopsis after the book goes to the final editing rounds. view post
