My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon
by Katie MacAlister, Jim Butcher, Marjorie M Liu,  et al.

This is a book of short stories, so I’ll take a quote from different novellas.

Killing him would be easiest but, unfortunately, out of the question. Ten years from now, I’d still be hearing about it: Clay couldn’t even get through our honeymoon without killing someone. – Stalked by Kelley Armstrong

You know, before I marry a guy, I like to know little things like him turning hairy and carnivorous on the full moon. You’re a werewolf… That qualifies as need-to-know information before we tie the not, in my book! – Half of Being Married by Lillith Saintcrow.

How to Publicize a Book

I recently had to do an assignment for school where I was to create a publicity campaign for a Canadian book. My group’s “publishing company” chose to “sign” Chuck Huges of Chuck’s Day Off fame to make a cookbook (okay, so the photo is actually the menu from his Montreal restaurant, I’m not the cover designer on my team).  I also had to figure out the sales distribution targets, but that part wasn’t nearly as much fun.

The thing is, it is a lot harder than you think trying to figure out the best ways to promote a book on a very minimal budget. Some of you may have heard me say before that the only funds for publicity is $1 per book in your print run, so, for example, 15 000 books printed equals $15 000 towards marketing and publicity.
