Internet Works in Strange Ways

A month or so ago, I did an interview for The Fence My Father Built on Meg Moseley’s blog. She’s a “newish” author whose debut When Sparrows Fall (Multnomah, 2011) is helping establish her as a fine novelist. Today she wrote that a recognized Canadian blogger, Paul Wilkinson, mentioned my interview with Meg.
Writing Tip for Today: Whoop-de-doo, you say? Not so fast.

  • The link could open a whole new market for both Meg and me.
  • It reinforces my belief in the Internet to market and promote our work.
  • It’s a good reminder to set your Google Alerts for both the book title (in quotation marks) as well as your author name. That way you automatically receive notice when out of the way things such as Paul’s mention of our interview occur.
  • There’s no such thing as bad ink. Even if the comment hadn’t been positive, the more readers who hear about even a “bad” book the more will check out that book if only from curiosity.
