Book Launch 2.0 (Hilarious!)

This is bloody brilliant (and more accurate that you might imagine). This is a writer talking to his editor about the paperback re-release of his book. Enjoy!

LOL, "What twitters?" So much of that is quotable!

It is a funny video, but it does bring up the question of what an author can reasonably do to promote her/his book.

I have a website and a blog, which attracts a lot of attention via my listing on blogcatalog.com.

I'm also an active participant in a few online communities including a group blog that caters to my target audience (lesbians -- ooh, scary!).

But I try to balance my (hopefully) smart marketing efforts with the time I spend writing. I had a weekly podcast which I abandoned because it was taking 16 hours a week. I had 200 iTunes subscribers, but I had no time to write.

Peace out,
Dharma
