"The Shameless Promotion and Endless Plug-Your-Novel Thread"
#1  Dr. Drib 03-12-2010, 06:09 AM
We all like a good read, right? Especially when the price is right or when the ebook is new, or when the 28th Revision is NOW AVAILABLE - that's when we want to know about it.

Why not use this Thread to get the "Good Word" out on your recently published novel? You know: The novel that was just published by Rabbit-Do Press ["We Produce More Ebooks Than You Can Comfortably Read." ]

So let this be YOUR platform for YOUR published novel, whether it be a Self-published novel, a promotion ["Available at this special price for ONLY 10 more months!"] or when you chime in with "Endless Plugs." But remember: You're going to have a lot of competition and that plug is going to get quickly buried.

BUT WAIT! -- Like any thread, this is open to comment by all posters. This will be a place for Writers AND Readers to make comments. [If you're a thin-skinned writer, you might want to avoid making a posting here: This may not be a good place for "special" personality-types.]

Please remember: Let's use this Thread to have a CONVERSATION as we congratulate our new writers or their newly published work.

And also remember:



"Rabbit-Do Press" is a copyrighted name by Dr. Drib.

Thanks, Dr. Drib!

Let me be the first to take advantage of this great opportunity. I have several books available on my website and at smashwords and feedbooks.

When Do I See God? has been available on my web site for 13 days and 22 hours. (By including the hours, I can come back with an update and make a new post in the same day!)

Soul View has been available for 275 days and 18 hours.

The Delver Magic series has been available for years. (I really don’t want to count back the days for those.)

They’re all free, so unfortunately I can’t give you a coupon code that’s only good for five days and then come back with a post for a new coupon code to replace the expired one. I also can’t keep adding new posts to inform you there’s 4 days 6 hours and 3 minutes left until the offer expires. (I really should work on my Marketing strategy.)

My books are available in several formats, but again, if I find some new format, I’ll be sure to come back with a post to bump my thread to get more attention, er, I mean to inform you of the good news. I'll also be sure to inform you whenever my books get a new review, whenever I reach a download milestone, or whenever I see this thread drop too far down the list for my liking.

Thanks again!

Here's the complete list:

The Second Coming: A Words of the Prophecy Novel

Five hundred years have passed since the Earth shifted on its axis - a catastrophic event that wiped out civilization and released the powers of the dead. Now, a dark age shrouds our world once more.

Journey into a future rife with witchcraft, demons, and vengeful gods that have returned to reclaim their former dominions. Follow the fates of three intertwined characters in this sinister new realm: Paine, a young man cursed with the ability to summon the dead and on the run from Witch Hunters; Brahm, the battle-hardened woman that slaughtered his mother and in whose body the woman's soul now resides; and John, a friar once imprisoned for heresy, now assigned by a woman Pope to destroy the boy he unwillingly fathered. Take a voyage to the future as the legions of heaven and hell combine to bring the WORDS OF THE PROPHECY to fruition.

The Second Coming is nigh.

And the God we expect to deliver us from evil is not who He seems.

"Beautifully written, dark and eerie vision of an apocalyptic future."
- Margaret Weis, New York Times Bestselling Author

"David H. Burton is a dark new talent in the genre. This one will make you leave the lights on for a week!"
- USA Today Bestseller, Cathy Clamp

The race to unravel the mystery begins, and Katherine must solve it – for any day after her birthday could be her last.

I think your press has invaded my library, as the TBR list has been multiplying like, well, you know...

If new threads crop up that are shameless self-promotion, will they be merged into this thread? (please oh please oh please)

Seriously: That will continue to be looked at as needed, and as we Moderators see what is appropriate or not. When you think about it, those threads usually grow as a natural result of reader comment followed by author appreciation, and from actual news related to a book or to circumstances related about an author's professional well-being. Most of those types of threads will die a natural and thankful death, anyway, thank God.

About this thread and with a little humor in my comments: It was the shameless bumping [like an irritating telemarketer who won't stop calling], or the "HEY! 'Love Bite Magazine' absolutely LOVED my new book and YOU will, too" type of nonsense that was beginning to irritate some readers here at MobileRead. Hence, the purpose of this thread: Irritate away, writers!

YOU CAN USE THIS THREAD TO TELL US HOW MUCH YOUR "UNCLE BARBARA" (the cross-dressing relative that Aunt Matilda likes to trade clothes with) LOVED YOUR NEW BOOK!

Because, after all, if your relatives love your new book, won't Readers here at MobileRead like it, too?!!

Last day for Read An E-Book Week...go get your ebooks while they're free/cheap!

#8  Dr. Drib 03-14-2010, 09:22 AM
Remember there's only more than 200 days left - or until Dec. 31, 2010 to get your free ebooks.

The response has been great! Already, 3 people have downloaded a free ebook in the last 10 months.

Get your copy before this special sale ends - or until a new President is elected.

Come on, Authors -- this is your Thread.


#9  Dr. Drib 03-14-2010, 09:29 AM
To repeat:

David Burton has a free ebook available.

USA Today has some comments.

He also has a Trailer available.

It's also available from Amazon.

And there's also the author's website, located here:

Dr. Drib, I missed some of that information you posted. I guess I was reading too fast. Could you please post it all again. I'm sure other people missed it as well and they would probably appreciate seeing it again, and again, and again...

Also, you said something about there being more than 200 days left. That's not quite as precise as I would like. Is it 217 days or 216 days? It makes a huge difference.
