World, meet Spartacus

Ok, the mass-market of MIRRORED HEAVENS gets released tomorrow, and that means it’s Shameless Self-Promotion/mega-pimpage time. Events are going to be going down all week, so watch this space. . .

And I’m going to start off by introducing my partner in this marketing endeavor, Spartacus the Wonderbeast. He may be only five months old, but he is a marketing expert, and has been signed on at Chez Williams specifically to help me sell this paperback. In fact, his continuing to be supplied with unlimited amounts of chicken and turkey directly depends on Bantam moving thousands of copies of this book. But he’s not worried in the slightest, and is right now investigating a certain mouse-like toy that has rolled under the desk. Stay tuned for further updates. . .

    Since I already have your book, I pre-ordeed Dark Skies today from Amazon. Nice cat. I also have a cat named Logan, he watches Battlestar Galactica with me.

    For what it is worth, I picked up my MMPB of The Mirrored Heavens a couple days ago at the Borders on State in Chicago. A sale you can directly credit to your expedition to Windycon. Hopefully I’ll like it.

    Ah, I knew I couldn’t be the only who photographs their cat with books ;-) Only cutie Spartacus looks a lot more enthusiastic than my Manny – nothing impresses him except tuna ;-)

    Thanks for sharing Teh Cuteness, and have a lovely day! :-)

    @Meesh: he’s the brains all right. I obey all orders without question.

    @ John C.: thanks for the pre-order dude! And Logan’s a cool name. . . I heard they were gonna do a remake of that movie, but I’m hoping the rumors are false.

    @ Jason: thanks a ton, sir. hope you enjoy it!

    […] Spartacus here, back for the final day of my week of guest-blogging. Dave’s pitiful cries from the bedroom are growing faint, and I think I’ll have to open the door shortly if I want more food (I suppose I could eat him, but this would be a short-term solution). […]

    Dave– He’s so cute! You should keep an eye out for when GalleyCat runs pics of authors’ cats. Always good to have a little extra web ink, and that site is well known. If I see any notices, I’ll try to remember to alert you.

    @Karen: well, he’s a little more seasoned/”mature” now. . . but hopefully he’ll still qualify! Definitely let me know if you see anything re GalleyCat, I’ll keep my eyes open . .
