Blog Tour! But Not Really!


Lots of authors these days are doing blog tours. Joe. Konrath wrote original content for over 100 blogs to promote his book AFRAID. I’m not nearly as hyper as Joe, so I can’t do that. Instead, I’m offering a guest blog right here. Just insert your name and book and post away!

Version #1, For Authors….
_____

Hi! I’m published author Jeff Strand! My novel PRESSURE will be at a bookstore near you on May 26th, and it answers the age-old question “What if your best friend was a killer…and he wanted you to be just like him?” Publishers Weekly called it “marvelously creepy reading…the horror in this tale of twisted friendship is relentless.” Sweet, huh?

But you know what? Screw PRESSURE. [Your Book Here] is way better. After I read it, I called up Leisure Books and begged them not to publish my crappy book. “Don’t worry,” they said, “not everybody can be [Your Name Here]. Even [Your Name Here] has trouble being [Your Name Here] some days. It’s a level of awesomeness that only three or four people can attain at any given time. PRESSURE may not be as good as [Your Book Here], but it’s still a fine piece of work.”

So I broke into the Leisure Books warehouse and burned every copy of PRESSURE that my flamethrower could reach. I think a few copies may have survived, so if you’ve already read [Your Book Here] and everything else by [Your Name Here] you might want to give it a shot.

Version #2, If You’re Not An Author…

Hi! I’m published author Jeff Strand! My novel PRESSURE will be at a bookstore near you on May 26th, and it answers the age-old question “What if your best friend was a killer…and he wanted you to be just like him?” Publishers Weekly called it “marvelously creepy reading…the horror in this tale of twisted friendship is relentless.” Sweet, huh?

But you know what? Screw PRESSURE. Any random entry from [Your Name Here]’s blog is way better. After I read that last post, I called up Leisure Books and begged them not to publish my crappy book. “Don’t worry,” they said, “not everybody can be [Your Name Here]. Even [Your Name Here] has trouble being [Your Name Here] some days. It’s a level of awesomeness that only three or four people can attain at any given time. PRESSURE may not be as good as the blog of [Your Name Here], but it’s still a fine piece of work.”

So I broke into the Leisure Books warehouse and burned every copy of PRESSURE that my flamethrower could reach. I think a few copies may have survived, so if you’ve already gone back and read the entire archives of [Your Name Here]’s blog, you might want to give it a shot.
