Well, the big news is probably that "Game of Thrones" is now showing on HBO. I've been hearing good reviews but I haven't seen an episode yet. For those who have yet to pick up George R. R. Martin's epic work, you're in for a treat (although in my opinion, the guy starts to lose focus a little bit...I had a hard time getting into book 4).
As most of you are authors who are constantly on the lookout for new methods for book promotion, I thought I'd suggest doing some Facebook ads. I've just started experimenting with them and I like the fact that they allow you to set a budget (I couldn't find that option on Google ads...although I may have just not looked hard enough).
My other recent tactic is to be a lurking beast on the Amazon fantasy forum. There seem to be a lot of fantasy writers on there who are willing, at least, to give your book a "like" (hey, everything helps).
That's about it for now, good luck writing, marketing and selling. If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to write me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
