First off, to all those book bloggers whom I’ve been in touch with over the last few days — welcome!
It’s been a busy week of letter writing and mailings, as I seek out reviews for Latasha. The division of labor worked like this: my publisher handled the mailings to the national media and reviewers, and I’ve been contacting the locals and members of the blogosphere personally. Thus far, I’ve reached out to about 30 different blogs, and my batting average when it comes to accepted ARCs has been pretty good. Hopefully, I’ll be able to say the same once the reviews actually come back…but I’m feeling good, if a bit wiped from doing my normal writing and all this network-y stuff.
