Putting the Hump in the Day

Perhaps it’s my inner juvenile delinquent, but since Wednesday is lovingly referred to as “Hump Day,” it only seems appropriate to take this opportunity to do a little pimping.

First, and close to home, my husband’s studio project has hit it.  Like many authors, they chose the Indie route.  You can hear a sample on on this website.

You can pick up the CD here .

Kristen Lamb has given us even more tidbits this week about marketing that authors (and perhaps musicians) should take note.  You can read her advice on her lovely blog.  Kristen’s Books   We Are Not Alone–The Writer’s Guide to Social Media and Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer are for sale for around $4.99.  They, as stated above, are a writer’s guide to social media.  Kristen teaches us how to attract and engage our audience so that we can build our platforms, and our book sales.

And not that he needs any pimping – the Grand Master Pimp himself, Joe Konrath published on his blog today about the demise of the Big 6.  For those non-literary folks that means the Big 6 publishing houses – like Random House.  I’m not sure if Konrath is right, but his other predictions have been spot on.  This comes from the first man to sell over a million eBooks.  The man is worth listening to… and I plan on taking some of his advice.

And…for my literary peeps – Janet Reid’s former assistant Merideth Barnes posted today about word count.  This is a common question that I’ve never seen such a simple answer to.  She lays it all out here.  She breaks it down into Genre…interesting enough, her article actually touches on some of the trends Lamb speaks about.

So there it is – my Pimping for the Day of the Hump!
