Today is the first day I’m doing a quick promo to give away a few e-books for free in exchange for reviews. Also, I’m at a Japanese Animation convention, Anime North, doing a few panels on publishing and Asian vampires.
After a long day of chatting with friendly people dressed as Sailormoon, Naruto and other fabulous creatures; I came home to do a quick check to see how the downloads were going. Surprisingly I hit number one in Fiction/Asian American and Fantasy/Asian!
Admittedly these are very niche categories, but hey, No. 1 is better than No. 100 at the moment! Here’s hoping that I’ll find a great audience who likes to read things from a different perspective!
Meanwhile, greetings from me and a plant lady at Anime North (pic below)!
I’ll be at Anime North this weekend and have been looking forward to this for a long time! It’s a big con for me and my book, so I’m super excited! My Viking is very nervous as it is his first con and it’s a big one! The attendance is about 25K and although I’ve been involved for many years, the Viking stayed away…
During May 24-28, 2014 I am giving The Undead Sorceress e-book for free as part of my promotional strategy at the con. Click Amazon Kindle link here for free e-book during these few promo days.
Anyhow, below is my schedule – Sat I’m at the table and Sun I’m in panels. All purchases of the print book will get all sorts of goodies: the whole set of limited art cards along with pandas & bags.
