Just a reminder that you can now preorder a signed copy of LIES I TOLD from Oblong Books and Music! I love doing preorder incentives with Indies, both because I want them to stick around and because it means I get to see the names of the people who have preordered and can write a personal message along with my signature. I feel like I know so many of you from Twitter, Facebook, etc., and it’s really nice to see your names on the list and then sit down to write you a note. Plus, if you order from Oblong you get a handy-dandy peacock pocket mirror as part of the promotion.
Like you needed something else to make this worthwhile.
Preorders are a very important benchmark for authors, as publishers look at those numbers to determine how well the book is expected to do. And THAT is important because if a book does extraordinarily well with preorders, a publisher may give the book more exposure through increased marketing, something that can make ALL the difference in how well a book does long term. It’s one of very few things you can do in advance of a book’s release to support the book and its author. So do me – and any author you want to support – a solid and preorder a book today!
P.S. Hang onto your receipt if you preorder from another store (online or otherwise) as well. All of my preorder swag is going to the Oblong orders first, but if I have extra, I’ll be offering it to readers who preordered elsewhere.
