Last month I had the opportunity to make an online appearance that may very well be the next new advancement in book tours. Shindig is a site which allows up to 500 people to join you for a live, virtual discussion online. Think Blog Talk Radio, but with the ability to see and interact with the attendees.
Questions can be asked, and you can opt out of appearing onscreen, but it’s very cool to see your friends and followers as you present your discussion.
This is a Beta site, a bit glitchy, and a dozen people were unable to access the appearance, but I’m sure Shindig will be able to work out all of the kinks before too long. I was thrilled to have had this opportunity to talk about my books, SNARE and STACCATO and to discuss my road to publication.
If you are an author with a new release, or want to promote your currently published books, I encourage you to jump on this opportunity. You can reach Eric Yohay at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deborah J Ledford’s latest suspense novel SNARE, The Hillerman Sky Award Finalist, is book two of her Deputy Hawk/Inola Walela thriller series. STACCATO, book one of the serial, is also available. Both novels are published by Second Wind Publishing. To find out more about Deborah, receive a Free Download of the first chapters of her novels, and to read a few previously published short stories, she invites you to visit her website.
