How things are going to shake out

As we dive into October, I’m going to be starting my blog tour for The Midnight Rambler. This means chaos around here for a while.

I’m eternally grateful for my hosts, and want to create some benefit for their hosting me. This means I’m going to be reblogging the posts here on the day they go live.

The hope is that you’ll visit these folks, read the posts, and meet some incredibly generous members of the writing community. Check out their books, consider following their blogs, and help me repay the favor in some small way.

My hosts are all the kind of people authors should get to know. They’re helpful, intelligent, charming, and worth spending some time with.

I’ve gone out of my way to make each tour stop unique. This won’t be like the, now out-of-style, cover and blurb days. There’s a bit of content at each stop so my long-term fans won’t get bored. Let’s face it, you can only look at a cover and blurb so many times.

Lisa Burton is going on the promotion trail, too. She has some fun new posters to share with everyone, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

My work weeks have gotten hectic, and there’s no end in sight. I can manage a few comments before my morning commute, then I’m going to have to pick it back up after I get home.

I have a few outliers that I might still have to squeeze into the schedule, but I’m hoping to have it all wrapped up this weekend. It’s the only time I have to do this stuff.

It’s going to be a great October, but I might be tired after it all ends. Tonight, I need to come up with my next Story Empire post. It would be great if I could nail that down before the work week arrives once more.

Have a great weekend everyone, and I’ll be seeing you along the tour route.

  1. I like that you’re making each tour stop unique, Craig, and I look forward to Lisa’s new posters. She’s always a hit.

    And I can relate to the work issues and getting online. I’m facing the same issues due to job changes, and hoping I can hop online at lunch breaks, then again in the evening. It’s hard juggling it all, but you’ll nail it!

  3. Lots to juggle for you, Craig. Your new tour sounds very exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing Lisa Burton. Best of luck during this busy time. (I loved the apple close-ups here, BTW. Or Asian pears?)

  5. Best of luck with it. I know the blog tour can be almost as much work as writing the novel is!

  10. I always enjoy your tour posts, and I’m excited to see what Lisa has up her sleeve. If she’s even wearing any, of course.

  11. HI Craig, I take it that your early start and early finish isn’t working out that well. I tried that and it never worked for me so now I just accept I can’t write during the week. Sometimes I do some marketing while on boring admin Teams meetings. I can set up Twitter and Instagram without concentrating much. It isn’t easy, but then, nothing in life ever is.

    Hope you got the Story Empire post written as quickly as you hoped to, good luck with the tour, and I hope there will be some time to rest a bit once it’s over.
