Cover Reveal & Publication/Blog Tour Dates

After a lot of thought, and factoring NaNoWriMo and the festive season into the equation, I have finally decided on the publication date of the first of my ebook short story collections. Passing Time and Other Dark Fiction Stories will be published on February 11th 2013. Taking Time and Other Science Fiction Stories is tentatively scheduled for May 6th.

What I need now is your help. I am looking for people to take part in my cover reveal on January 7th and anyone who would be willing to host me during a two-week blog tour. I would like the blog tour to run Monday to Friday, from 11th to 22nd February. So, I am looking for ten blogs to host me. Even if you are unable to take part in the cover reveal or official blog tour, I would love a shout-out of any kind.


If you are interested in the cover reveal and/or blog tour, please leave a comment below or email me via my Contact Me page.

If you can blog, tweet, Facebook, or use any other social media to tell people about this, I would much appreciate it. Please feel free to use the web button I have produced for the cover reveal. I will post another for the blog tour nearer the time.

Happy Writing.

  2. Ok, so you have now reached the limits of my knowledge of social networking. I can explain in detail how the software and hardware behind the Internet works, right down to quantum tunnelling effects that are the current limit on hardware miniaturisation, but hosting someone else’s blog? I am as a babe in the woods, how is that done? I would like to help but don’t know how.

    1. 'I can explain in detail how the software and hardware behind the Internet works, right down to quantum tunnelling effects that are the current limit on hardware miniaturisation'

      You lost me at 'I'. LOL.

      In answer to your question, for the cover reveal and/or blog tour, I would write a guest piece that you would post on your blog on the assigned day. I would send the post to you in Word format, along with any links and images. You then transfer them into a post, putting whatever you wanted to introduce me etc. Hope that helps!

    2. OK I get it now, count me in. I assume you need an email address to send the word file.

    3. Yes. I would need an email address. No rush, as I will not be sending cover reveal posts out for a while yet. The blog tour posts will be sent out during January.

      Thanks for offering help!
