I love reading Xeus's blog posts--they're always full of neat info. The latest post is about her efforts to garner publicity for Dark City in newspapers and magazines:
My main problem on doing publicity for my book is that I'm a pseudonym, and I refuse when they want a picture of me. For them, no picture = no interview. And so I strain myself coming up with angles on how they can feature me. For the press, it's all about the angle of the story, otherwise you'd have to contend with a book review.Do also read the comments section where Yvonne Lee (The Sky Is Crazy) and Lydia Teh (Life's Like That) chime in with their 2sen's worth.
Hey, thanks for highlighting my blog, Ted! How's the short story publication going? Any news yet?ReplyDelete
Hi Ted! Thanks for this kind of support.ReplyDelete
I think the sharing of news is healthy for our writing scene.
You're welcome, both of you. No big news as yet, but I now do have a chance to polish my draft. Am making sure I'm proud of it before I release it into the wild :DReplyDelete
