Still at work. Loraine called late to fill me in on her meetings in London:
- She’s tried to sell Conspiracy’s second book while she was at a publisher’s negotiating another deal. Turns out. No one’s interested.
- I told her about his blog, and she said to get it ready to pitch to Manchester at tomorrow’s conference call. I said that I hadn’t asked Conspiracy yet, and she said to run it by Manchester first (he’s the one into blogs), then go back to Conspiracy.
- So, that’s why I’m here late. I’m getting my proposal together for tomorrow’s call.
- I suggested that, if we’re going to try and sell his blog, then we might be able to start marketing through that format now. I could send out a press release to a load of bloggers, asking them if they wanted to review the first book, and if they did, then I could send electronic copies. Then, if we got the blog published, we’d have an already waiting audience. Loraine likes the idea, so I’m now making a list of all the bloggers I want to approach about reviewing the book.
- And she talked to that author who was going to leave both his agent and publisher to go self-epublished. Loraine has gotten him to agree to ‘think about it’ before doing anything official.
Right. Better get back to work. In fact, I think I just made this list as more of a ‘to do’ list for myself as opposed to a blog post. Sorry about that.
