How do I plan to accomplish this?
I’m taking a page out of Chuck Wendig’s book once again and throwing open the doors of the comments section for the following (he makes people do one of each, just sayin….):
- Pimp out somebody else’s work – this can be a favorite author, blogger, post or book you’ve read, a wonderful teacher or just someone who had profound influence on you as a writer or a person.
- Promote one of your projects that you’re excited about – a hobby, a blog, a book, a new direction your writing is taking you. You decide. Just tell us all about it in the comments! The rest of us will jump in and “ooooh and coo” at you, and likely promote your project even further (because that’s just how we are).
I want to hear about what’s exciting in your life today.
To start this fiesta off right, I’m going to:
PIMP OUT… James Rollins. This all-around nice guy (and ex-veterinarian) rocked my world at the DFW Writers’ Conference last month. He was fun, witty and very down to earth. His personality alone convinced me to buy any book he writes but you know the best part? They’re great books!
In case you need any more convincing, Harper Collins is allowing people to download the first six chapters of his new book “Bloodline” for free. (Squeeeeee!)
Last, but not least, James has a short prequel to “Bloodline” coming out on June 5th for $0.99 that introduces two characters in the book. I’m particularly excited because I am such a dog lover! Kane, the war dog gets his own POV in this book and I want to see how James (the ex-vet) handles that. More about TRACKER can be found here.
I’ll save all the promoting for y’all – you be sure to enjoy yourselves down there in the comments. I’ll just thank you once again for making things so fun here at More Cowbell!
p.s. Be sure to read through everyone’s comments to find something new and shiny.
OK, Team Cowbell!! Rev those engines…Let’s see your best pimp or promote!!
