Blogs wanted for the ‘A Close Shave with Destiny’ Blog Tour
My comedy fantasy novella, ‘A Close Shave with Destiny,’ is currently in the ‘In Review’ stage at Amazon. In up to 72 hours the print and kindle versions will become available. To help promote this, I would like to set up a blog tour (please note I have never done this before so am probably making tons of mistakes!). I am a hobbyist writer so do not have money to spend on a professional to sort this out, so am really asking for the generosity of the public (along with a free copy of the book!). So here are the details…
What I would like from you
To post an article about ‘A Close Shave with Destiny’ on your blog that links to the book in both formats.
What I will give
- Title, text, images and links for the article (to explain who I am, why I wrote the book and what the book is about)
- A date to place the article on your blog
- Tweets to the article from my twitter account (including the #CloseShaveBlogTour hashtag)
- A free copy of the book in either kindle or print version (happy to sign the print version if you want)
- The commitment to participate in your next blog tour
What is ‘A Close Shave with Destiny?’
I suppose you want to know what the story is about before you commit. Well, it is a novella of around 40,000 words that tells the story of Wignut and his aid Barnabus. It is a comedy fantasy novella set in a moustache. Why a moustache you ask? Originally it was to be written as a short story to help get sponsorship for Movember (where you grow a moustache in November to raise money for men’s health causes), but became too large and turned into a novella. I have therefore decided to donate to Movember and sell the novella as a work in its own right. Anyhow, back to the story. Wignut and Barnabus are told of an apocalypse that will rip up houses and trees so and are sent, against Wignut’s will (he is very sceptical), to collect a sticky substance to glue down their houses and save the village. The novella is the resultant mission.
What do you do next?
Thank you to everyone for even looking at this, and many more thanks if you take part.
