Blogging and Promos and Covers, Oh My!

So! I’ve been busy.

I didn’t really know what to expect after the book release. I suspected there might be very little difference from my point of view. And in a way, I was right – but that’s mostly because I was writing up promo stuff even before the release. I’ve put a list of links below to all the blogs and interviews I’ve done that are up now (there are a few more coming).

It’s a lot more work than I thought it would be. Heaven knows I’ve blogged about anything and everything, and I figured yakking about my characters and my universe would be easy. Turns out it feels really different when I consider that people reading what I’m writing might actually have read the book.

One thing that’s been awfully nice, though, is how generous people are with their time and space. I know I’m still a newbie to this business, and I’ll probably run across some curmudgeons eventually. But so far? Nice people, all of them.
