An interview, a reading and a contest

Promoting a book is challenging, but it’s also a lot of fun.  Over the course of the last week, I’ve done some pretty cool stuff:

First, I did an interview with Jeralyn Lash-Sands for her blog, Jeralyn Writes.  I really enjoyed answering her questions.  Many thanks, Jeralyn, for your interest in me and my book!

Then, I did a reading from Peripheral Involvement as part of the Audio Series on The Next Best Book Blog.  I’ve always had this fantasy of being on the radio or doing voice-overs, so it was really fun to record myself (although it took a few tries to get it right).  I love the idea of people being able to hear my words in my voice.

Finally, I found out last week that I made it to the second round of Amazon’s Breathrough Novel Award contest.  My entry there was a matter of lucky timing, as I had just finished finalizing the book for publication when the contest opened.  They announce the quarter-finalists on April 14, so I’ve got my fingers crossed.  I will, of course, let you know how it goes.

One response to “An interview, a reading and a contest”

  1. Bob, it doesn’t surprise me at all to read that you made it to the second round of Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award Contest. As I mentioned to you after taking in your well-constructed replies to my questions for the interview, you are on your way to something big. Congratulations – have fun and enjoy!
