Authors are getting very creative when it comes to marketing. Last week I told you about an author that put a ad in Craigslist for a woman to have a professional love affair with him for 30 days so he can write about it in his next novel. I would not go that deep, maybe having a book signing at a sex shop would be more my league. Mystery? Have a scavenger hunt that relates to the plot. Enticing readers with free stuff is definitely a plus; everyone loves free ish. Or what about a game?
Kobo is running an online game called The Descent which is based off of Dan Brown’s Inferno and nine circles of hell. Download Sins of Temptation and Sins of Violence for free through Kobo. There are clues sprinkled within the ebooks, crack them and play the game. First player to arrive at the final step and complete it will get $5,000 AND an ereader signed by Dan Brown himself. Hurry up though, this promotion ends May 14th!
Peace and luv!
