Book Launch Update

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you're all fully recovered from the A-Z Challenge. Feels like it's receding in the rear view mirror but the sense of accomplishment is still giving off a warm glow.

This is just a wee update about launch plans for my spec fic collection which is set for May 25th. Those who agreed to host me on my tour can expect a post by the middle of next week if all goes well. I've been busy with them this week and having a lot of fun!

If anyone else would be kind enough to give my book a blast on launch day, let me know and I'll send over some details. I also created a Thunderclap campaign, you can join that here. It's just a couple of clicks which will automatically schedule a Tweet, Facebook update or Tumblr post on the day. I'll also post some prewritten tweets to grab on release day.

Okay, that's my marketing hat off. Have an excellent weekend!

Warm greetings and all the best with the launch!

Your book sounds very interesting Nick and I wish you the best with it's release. I have a pretty good idea what a blog tour is, but not being a writer, I'm unsure of what a thunderclap is. I'm guessing social media posts and buzz? Anyway, makes this a great time to be Blitzed! ;)

I would LOVE to host you on release day. The book cover is fantastic, just like your writing. Send whatever you'd like to: elson.nicki@gmail.com

If you have time, could you answer one simple question for my blog? If you had to pick one song that best captures the essence of A Change of Mind and Other Stories, what would it be and why?

Happy B-b-b-blitz Day!
