They like us, they really like us!


So we're day two into the cover reveal and I'd like to share what I think of doing a cover reveal before a tour.  I would have posted yesterday but I ended up in the ER with colitis.  Ych.  So I'm on meds and catching up on work so forth on a chicken stock diet, nothing like it.

I'm really really happy with the way things are going so far.  My intention was to pre-buzz this tour with a cover reveal since we're not at Amazon yet.  I think it would be better of course to be at Amazon but we can't change things so this is what I'm doing.  I'm keeping track of website hits.  So far we've increased hits to this blog at least 750%.  If I have my math right.  Never was good in math.  But that's what it's looking like so far.  Because I was in the ER not able to promote a thing, I can't imagine what kind of hits I'd be getting if I could have sent out my own promotions.

On the other hand, the bloggers who have hosted us have been over the top fantastic.  The comments on these blogs will blow you away.  They love the concept, the cover and are saying they want to buy the book.  Even if we don't sell a single copy, that is enough to make my day right there.

Let me give you an example.  Here's what was on My Book Addiction and More yesterday:

What an interesting concept! I'd love to read the book. 

What beautiful cover art and a very intriguing synopsis. Looking forward to the read, thanks for sharing. Definitely going to enter the giveaway for this treat ;)

I do believe in ghosts - there is just so much more out there than my puny mind can fathom - so why not ghosties :)  

Is that the coolest thing or what?  I'm still out there promoting but those readers are like gold. ;o)
