The World, My Oyster, and You
So…when I get done writing this book, I will be able to write whatever I want. Historical, contemp, dragon, vampire, steampunk, mystery, young adult…you name it, the world is mine. Well, so far as writing the next book goes.
Given the choice, what would you prefer that I write next? Yes, yes, I’ll end up writing what I will feel like writing, but I’m interested in what people are anticipating the most.
I wanted to thank those of you on Facebook who put up with my head-scratching over a reader who sent me a nasty note about Yacky’s book. I can’t tell you how much your comments and e-mails of support mean to me–it really does make me feel blessed to have you all in my life.
It’s ironic that all that warm fuzziness should be going around right now because Assistant Sister and I have been brainstorming something super exciting. Although I’m not quite ready to release all the details, I will let you guys know that at long last, after two years in the waiting, the Katie Mac Street Team (aka Mobile Minions) will be launched upon the unsuspecting world!
We are in the process of having some really fun things created as both rewards, and items you can share with others, so stay tuned for the call for street teamers!
I hear some of you asking “What’s a street team?” For authors, it’s simply a group of dedicated readers who help promote an upcoming book (or the author in general). People volunteer to help get the word out about a new book, and in return (depending on how the team is organized), they earn rewards. For my street team, I’m creating some nifty things that will be exclusively available for members only (and not the general public). So what do street teams members do? Everything from posting a review, to tweeting about a book, sharing videos, posting pictures, dropping promotional goodies off at libraries and bookstores, and something so fun, I can’t tell you about it until I have a picture of it. The street team is all volunteer, and we will be rewarding people for their efforts both big and small.
More information will be forthcoming as soon as we have the structure in place, but until then, consider whether or not you’re going to want to be one of the few, the dashing, the elite Mobile Minions!
The ladies behind the voices
This is a fantastically fun interview with all three of the narrators of the newly-released Dark Ones audio books. Who knew they were all buddies? In addition, there’s a contest to win a copy of each of the books! Go forth and enjoy.
