IWSG - 16 Weeks to Donald's Day...

Founded by Ninja Major (sel.) Alex Cavanaugh, one won't save 15% on Geico Insurance, but the Insecure Writers Support Group absolutely saves time and money by allowing copious amounts of time to be spent sharing worries, WIPS and warts.


For me, this month, I'm focusing in on Nov. 3, which is only sixteen weeks (or three IWSG posts) away...

That's the date my first book, REVIVAL: The Donald Braswell Story will be released.

Strangely, I'm not feeling insecure about the book - I've found a great publisher with an excellent sense of humor - so now it's "just" the marketing side of things I have to get my little bald head around.

I *DO* need some help to spread the word, so if you can hook a brother from another mother up, I solemnly promise to follow you on MySpace and send you a telegram of appreciation.

(Told you I have some marketing issues...)

But wait, there's more!

I'm planning something truly unique for the official launch party (more details to be shared over the next couple of weeks) but for now, all I'm asking is a show of virtual hands (and if you can Tweet/share this post, that would be most wonderful, too.)

Donald Braswell
If you haven't heard about Donald, or his *amazing* journey, the backstory is HERE.

So... interested in joining the REVIVAL?

Please let me know in the comments below. (It's a no-click, no-signing up zone.)

I will then grasp this pencil and paper thing I got for Christmas and write something called a list. (All listees will receive full details once we're closer to Nov. 3.)

 Cheers and Happy Fourth of July to everyone stateside:)

Good luck. I WANT the book with a very real passion. I am very bad at publicity, but will throw my cap in the ring if you think it could help.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Be happy to help you spread the word! And host you on my blog if you do a tour. Just say the word, Mork.

Virtual hand raised. Put me on the list. November will be here before you know it.

Sens me a hail when you're all set for the big day and we'll get the ball rolling.

Congratulations, Mark! Very exciting news for you. I'll be happy to help if I can. Maybe you'd like me to interview you for my blog after your book release.

I'll do it all, baby. Put me on the list! :D

I would really like a telegram. I've never had one!

I would be happy to feature you on my blog when your book releases. I remember you were one of my early First Impressions volunteers! I do prefer original posts to something that's appearing simultaneously on multiple blogs. So please -- keep me informed! If it's unique and fun, I'm in! Or alternately, I'd love an interview about writing a memoir. I've never interviewed a memoir-author.

Congratulations!

I don't tweet, but hey, put me on your list and I'll do a blog post for you. Sorry, I'm allergic to pen and paper :)

Annalisa Crawford said...

I'd love to help, Mark :-)

I love lists. Don't put me on it though. Life is a little unpredictable right now and I can't guarantee my presence, even a virtual one. We'll see if things settle down before November.

Loni Townsend said...

Woohoo! Grats on the upcoming release! I can help out if you need it. :) I don't know how helpful I'll be, but I'm willing to spread word.

Jo said...

Anything I can do Mork. Don't tweet of course.

Martin White said...

Inspiring story. Happy to spread the word anyway I can. Martin@fionasirishpub.com
