Hi LKA, my name is Larry Rodness and I am inquiring about receiving a review on my newest YA novel entitled, "Perverse", published by Itoh Press in both print and electronic formats. Synopsis as follows:
19 year old Emylene Stipe is a 2nd generation Goth who, like every teenage girl, is trying to find her place in the world. One night she comes upon an old painting in an antique store and is compelled to purchase it. When she brings it home an image of a young woman appears in the sketch and then magically materializes in her apartment. Emylene nick-names her 'Poinsettia' and they soon become fast friends. But Poinsettia has an ulterior motive for her sudden and strange intrusion into her host's life which causes Emylene to question her whole belief system.
I wanted to invite you and everyone you know to the #PinoysTalkYA happening this Friday, Feb. 15 on Twitter. I'm the guest author, but the chat isn't exclusive to stuff about me. It's really more about all things YA, and I thought you would want to participate. Here are the details of the event:
"The Twitter chat would go live every first Friday and third Friday of the month that starts at 7 PM until 8 PM. The chat will be moderated by yours truly (Von from Mr. Bookwonder) and the lovely ladies from Amaterasu Reads, Kai and Fragments of Life, Precious. There will be discussions about YA books of course, there will be giveaways, and the most exciting part of this chat is that we can invite authors too--both local and international! We are also in the midst of contacting National Book Store and Fully Booked regarding this. Hopefully, they will love this idea and join with us (along with their followers too)."
I'll be posting about the chat on my blog in the coming week. Any promotion you could do about #PinoysTalkYA is highly appreciated. I hope we can all meet up on Twitter this Friday and have a YA chat. *hugs*
Thanks for the message. I'm basically doing this on my own in a country that's not that technologically inclined ito e-readers (we're catching on but it's a slow change curve). So, if you're still okay with it, what advice would you give me to promote the book. I've read so many blogs, ebooks on marketing but the one thing missing, I think, for me, is people willing to give the book a try, review it and / or promote it. I'm very willing to gift the ebook (via a link to smashwords) to promote it. Can you assist please? And what would you require from me?
Thanks again for the offer. I really appreciate it.
Hi there, thanks for the welcome. I've already liked your fb page and checked it out. Thanks for the offer of help too...I'm sitting at my laptop hyped up right now because I took the biggest risk (grin) - the emotional one where I hit 'publish' on smashwords not so long ago... It helps that the writing community's comprised of such great people.
