Let me tell you the about the joys of social networking. No, this isn’t a diatribe about a “heated debate” on the internet, or some social faux pas which landed me in a sticky mess (although I’ve had more than my fair share of those). It is about making social connections with like spirits.
I’ve been trying lately to create some cooperative sharing vibe among other small press authors. I came across a thread on LinkedIn where another author asked whether cross promotion was acceptable in the business of small press authors. I told this author I thought it was not only acceptable, but that I had put my money where my mouth was and had already done it.
Now I’m doing it again. Author D.H. Nevins’ web page can be found at www.dhnevins.com . I’ve already read the first chapter sample of her forthcoming book Wormwood: A Post Apocalyptic Novel, and I had to laugh to myself that she’d placed her protagonist in the same kind predicament I had placed my protagonist Mikael in at the end of chapter one of Thomas the Poisoner – rendered unconscious with a fade to black. It seems that if nothing else we may just think a bit alike.
