In January 2013 my brother and I were sitting around chatting when I said casually ”Wouldn’t it be cool to write a sci fi novel”. Now, two and a half months later, it’s all but finished. Over 100,000 words of epic space travelling drama and action packed madness is only weeks from release as an eBook, and then later as a print version. Gyaros: Book One – The Mice Eat Iron is to be released on the 4th of April 2013 for $2.99!
I must give a special thanks to my friend and fellow author Athena Brady, without whom the Gyaros project would not have been the same. Thanks to her generous contribution over on the Ro-nations page we were able to purchase the artwork and put together this awesome book cover! So thank you Athena, every contribution helps so much in getting these works out there
Fellow bloggers this is where you come in. The blog tour will begin on the second week of April (Monday the 8th) and continue for as many days as it takes! Back in January, thanks to the efforts of 8 incredible bloggers, we managed to pull off a successful 10 day blog tour for The 7 Things That Made Me Genuinely & Irreversibly Happy. Let’s see if we can beat that!
So let’s take a look now at how you can help out. There are three options available to choose from:
Option 2: Author Interview - Interview myself and Alex. Ask anything you like, but make sure there is some reference to the book. Interviews are done via email.
Option 3: Host An Excerpt - This one’s easy peasy, simply create a post that includes a short write up about the book (genre, what it’s about, price, where to buy etc) and a sample chapter from the book!
And there you have it! I’ll be trying to get a balance of all three types so get in quick if there’s one particular option you really want. Now let’s have a look at what’s in it for you and your blog:
- Everyone who participates in the blog tour gets a free copy of the eBook.
- I will reblog your blog tour post on my blog sending my readers to you.
- The number of links going to and from your post will be great for SEO, increasing your blogs discoverability.
- You’ll become a nicer person by helping out and taking part in this awesome blog tour*
* May not actually make you nicer.
If you are interested in doing a post on your blog for the tour leave me a comment here and send me an email to email@example.com
WARNING: Gyaros: Book One – The Mice Eat Iron is a “new adult” action/sci fi/horror story. It contains strong violence, course language and adult themes. If you are sensitive to any of these you may find the book too much and might want to give this book a miss. Fair warning
I really can’t wait for the release of this book! It’s the first fiction novel I’ve ever been involved in writing which makes me incredibly excited Take care everyone and let me know if you want to take part in the blog tour!
All the best.
