So many exciting things happening all at once for my Days of the Dead blog tour!
RisingShadow has an exclusive Q&A with me about Vendetta, Shadow & Flame, Iron & Blood and what’s coming up next, plus switching up genres. It’s all here: https://www.risingshadow.net/articles/543-q-a-with-gail-z-martin-days-of-the-dead-blog-tour-2015
Then Beauty In Ruins gets me talking about Ghosts and Genre, and how the type of ghost and the way ghosts are portrayed differs by the sub-genre https://beauty-in-ruins.blogspot.com/2015/10/ghosts-and-genre-by-gail-z-martin-guest.html
Fellow author Catherine Lundoff and I chat about ghosts in alternate history stories, and the how/why of weaving in ghostly elements in Steampunk https://catherineldf.livejournal.com/384534.html
I posted about Moonlight and Magic for the Broad Universe Full Moon Blog Tour
Speaking of the Full Moon tour—there are 30 awesome moon-related posts on the tour and three awesome book prize packages. You can find the posts here: https://broaduniverse.org/blog/2015/10/14/full-moon-blog-tour-25-oct-7-nov/ and the Rafflecopter contests here (make sure you click on the arrow in the box—there are 3 contests) https://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/739c9ac21/
I’m doing a giveaway on Reddit/Fantasy for a set of 3 of my books in either physical or ebook (Kindle/Kobo/Nook)—2 winners, lots of fun! Books are War of Shadows, Deadly Curiosities and Iron & Blood. Details here https://bit.ly/1N67wTF Ends 10/30.
TWO Goodreads giveaways (one for Iron & Blood and one for Deadly Curiosities) post on 10/29, so make sure you enter for a chance to win! Watch for details—I’ll post the links when they go live.
On a slightly more serious note….Did you know that just because you’ve signed up for my Winter Kingdoms Facebook page, that doesn’t mean Facebook will let you see what I post? It’s true—Facebook has gotten greedy, and if you don’t pay to do ads or boosted posts, only about 1% – 3% of followers see what is posted. If you want to make sure you always know about new books, stories, novellas, events and giveaways, please join my Chronicles newsletter. It’s free, you’ll get excerpts and flash fiction, and you’ll get the scoop first! Sign up here: https://bit.ly/1CF12Th
And don’t forget The Swaggiest Swag giveaway. If you like bookmarks, postcards and cool free stuff from bestselling authors, this is for you. I’m one of 11 authors who are giving away neat stuff for just the cost of a self-addressed/stamped envelope. Find out more here: https://www.facebook.com/events/147435758936773/
