#webpresence -Viking Wedding Ceremony- Book Readings

Viking Wedding Ceremony

Viking Wedding CeremonyI’ll be honest with this one. I’m an introvert though I have been to one book reading I have not done any of my own. I don’t think it’s stage fright, I just have issues with boasting my books or anything else in front of a lot of people:)

Last summer I was invited to a Viking Wedding Ceremony. It took place in the mountains, the middle of nowhere. I’m talking an hour and thirty-minute drive into the mountains, dirt road boonying, turn on this smaller road, another rough road, avoiding rocks and trees, until dropping down into a valley. The drive alone was a blast and I’m still surprised I didn’t get lost. Boast-my little truck is a badass on those back roads!

After the wedding came the Mead. The goal, praise whomever you like, boast an accomplishment, drink, pass the Mead. There were only about ten of us. I passed on the Mead often, I can’t stand getting drunk, feeling drunk, or having a hangover. But the few times I did drink from the horn I had a hard time boasting, not because I didn’t have anything to say, I just couldn’t spit it out.  Like I said I’ve got issues:)

Lynn Thompson BooksPart 6: Find a Place To Give a Book Reading

 

I recently found a post on 89+ book marketing ideas and so far have posted increase your web presence,  build your fan base, cultivating community, making extra money, and building your brand offline to this series. Book marketing can take a lot of time and effort and I continually want to make sure I’m on the right path. With life, learning, and writing, I’m trying to manage my time better so I love it when I find loads of information on one post instead of finding a bit here and a piece there.

The post on the blog I found has a ton of information so I’m separating the book marketing ideas into eight different posts. Hopefully, once a week. Feel free to visit Author Media to read the whole post and get more great information. I’ve been using these lists and checking off what I already have and what I need to do.

As with anything else, I may not use all of this information and you may not either. But it is nice to have on hand.

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
