Elaine Viets and the art of book marketing
[There’s supposed to be a nice cheery book cover here, but those of you who read my last post won’t be surprised that Blogger won’t let me post it. Sigh. But you can see it and some other nice stuff at http://www.elaineviets.com ]
Back in December, some of you may remember a essay by Elaine Viets on the Lipstick Chronicles blog, concerning the Male Romance novel. Witty and with substance, Elaine gently inserted the skewer into the attitude that boy books are gritty, cutting edge, and worthy of review, where girl romances are, well, not.
Elaine has a new book out. Unfortunately, Elaine also has a brain recovering from a stroke, which means she wonâ€™t be touring, which means the promotion set up by her publisher has its legs kicked out from under it.
So some of us agreed to step up and say Hey, and support this great lady of crime fiction. And turn readers on to a fun book, as well.
Please go out and buy a copy of:
