Smashwords Interview with Mark Coker

Book Launch 2.0

The video below pretty much sums up the experience far too many authors seem to go through.  As a publisher I know I'm guilty of suggesting most of these techniques from time to time, but it's particularly entertaining when they're all strung together like they are in the video.  I'll admit I laughed out loud at least three times while watching this.  Thanks to reader Paul Mikos. for sending it along.  Enjoy.

Hilarious! Wish they'd do a prequel where the guy answers "I've been doing some writing" to the inquiry about what he's been doing. The pre-publication discussions can be very similar but with even more vague or intentionally unrevealing responses.

Funny, insightful and very very funny...oh I said that ;)

Now I don't feel nearly as guilty for being a bit behind in our promotion. We are ahead of this particular author, however.
