Tag Archives: Push Tuesday

Checking in

I’m just about to head down to my seminar, in Atlanta. I was so tired last night that I didn’t post anything.

I’ve been chosen as another Push Tuesday recipient by the Rave Reviews Book Club. This means my fellow club members will push one of my books across social media for an entire day. This is great support, and it generally moves copies too.

If you think you could benefit from some of this support, consider joining us today.

The club chooses which book to promote, and they chose Wild Concept. Lisa is beside herself with joy.

“I’d like to thank the Academy, anyone who’s invited me to their blog, everyone who’s ever appeared on my radio show, Craig, Bunny,…

Someone give her the hook. I’ve got to go to work. I’ll try to check in during the breaks and to support back when I can. Thanks everyone.

The Fates are Smiling

Last week one of my Macabre Macaroni stories yielded the highest number of views and follows in one day. That record lasted exactly one day. The next day surpassed the day I posted. I’ve gotta tell you, I was one happy blogger.

Things got even better today. I woke up, fed the old pit bull, and made coffee. When I opened my iPad and checked my email, it completely blew up.

It took me a minute to figure out what happened. I was selected for a “push day” with the Rave Reviews Book Club. They call this “Push Tuesday,” but it was Monday.

Club members are supposed to post all over social media and promote my book to their followers. I had hundreds of mentions on Twitter, and many of those folks have thousands of followers. I may have reached a million people today.

The club chose to promote Panama, and it was a good choice. This is a fun story, and is a great intro to my work. I managed a few book sales too. I don’t know if there will be any carryover, but I hope so.

I didn’t sell a jillion books, but it was Panama’s best day ever. Someone even picked up a copy using Kindle Unlimited. This has happened a couple of times now, but I still think it’s cool.

I’m celebrating. I’ve had to build my writing project one brick at a time. Today I hit an easy stretch. Maybe I’ll get a dozen reviews out of this.

Here’s a link to the Rave Reviews Book Club. You guys might want to check it out for yourselves.

And, just in case, here is a link to Panama. There might be one of you who didn’t get the tweet today.

Any idea how to thank a couple of hundred Twitter folks?
