Roll for initiative!
I'm seeking fellow geeks to host me on their blogs when my Dice & Debauchery (D&D) series is released on January 9, 2015. Yes, I'm getting an early jump on this, but I want to make sure I have time to prepare everything and get the best dates with my hosts.
I will be hiring a virtual book tour company to help promote the erotica side of the books. I'm familiar with only a few erotica blogs and I wouldn't know where to even start looking around for others. This will also ensure that any naughty stuff I share in excerpts or posts will be on sites meant for adults only.
The other tour I'm personally arranging for D&D will focus on the geeky aspects, romance, and writing. Posts with a PG rating rather than an R! (Of course, if you want to have something about erotica, I have no problems with that!) I have a ton of post ideas for nerdy things. It made me realize how immense of a geek I am!
You can request a guest post on something specific or a topic of my choosing, a nerdy interview, a character post, an excerpt, or a review. (I cannot give out review copies. You will have to email Ellora's Cave to ask for one. And I would greatly appreciate it if you do.)
There will be giveaways. Wait until you see what I have as prizes!
The first book of the series, "Loose Corset" will be released on January 9th. That's a Friday. I won't be doing a release day blitz nor will I be doing a cover reveal before it. (Readers seem tired of those things, but my newsletter subscribers will get to see everything first! Subscribe by entering your email address in that handy dandy little widget on the right hand side.)
It is a great possibility that each of the novellas will be released a month apart. Having learned how difficult it is to handle tours that have several stops in one week, I'm going to stretch out the D&D tour over those three months with only one or two stops a week. I hope this will give me time to be a proper guest on the blogs that host me and will also extend the exposure of D&D thus attracting more readers.
I would like to keep the dates to Mondays and Wednesdays. (Though if you really want me on your blog for a different day, I'm flexible.) If you're interested in hosting me for my D&D tour, please email me at christinerains [dot] writer @ gmail [dot] com. Let me know which date you'd like and what sort of post.
Here are the possible dates:
January 9, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28.
February 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25.
March 2, 4, 9, 11, 16, 18, 23, 25.
I will also be self-publishing an urban fantasy novel late winter or early spring. If you're uninterested in D&D or you could not get any dates you wanted, I will be doing a tour for my novel when it's released. It's quite the different creature than D&D, and readers of The 13th Floor will love it. Be on the look out for the call for tour hosts in a few months.
Thank you to everyone in advance. I've always received such a generous outpouring of support and encouragement from this community. You guys are awesome!
