Along with the whole “I’m active but not so active that I’m updating my social media” schtick I have going, I have entered Mark Lawerence’s Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off 2016
300 books enter, 1 book gets crowned the champion. That’s it, there’s no further prize. But of course as an independent author, the hardest thing to achieve is publicity, and this gives exactly that.
Demi Heroes has been randomly dealt to Ria from Bibliotropic who seems to be doing a pretty damn good job considering she’s only a single reviewer! Of course all of the blogs that have received books to review are allowed to decide how to go about eliminating books to get to the final one that they will put forwards into the top 10, but I’ve seen that some of the blogs that are running in teams of reviewers are doing less in-depth coverage of their books. So a big thank you to Ria!
And, extremely excitingly for me, she’s narrowed her 30 books down to the top 9 that she’s going to do a full review for, and Demi Heroes has intrigued her enough that I’m getting the full review treatment!
Of course, that review could be “DNF after 4th chapter. Huge mistake”, but let’s imagine that I started as I meant to continue, with intrigue, guile, and readability.
This will also be the very first review from a book blogger that I will receive, so that also makes me very excited. An in-depth review of my own book. Not at all scary!
I’ll be sure to post a link to her review when it’s up.
PS. I had completely forgotten about needing interesting images for every post. I’ll get right on that!
