Due to the fact that my IndieGoGo campaign for Imminent Danger is almost done (Dec 9th, baby!), I figured I’d go out on a limb and try to spread the word via the Facebook “boost post” feature. The post is over on my Facebook page if anyone wants to check it out and ooh and ahh over how shiny it is. Hypothetically you could also share the post via your own Facebook account, but that might be a bit extreme.
I set the post to “boost” itself $5 a day, for 2 days. It’s supposed to show up for Canadian women aged 13-30 who like books and e-books … which supposedly will reach between 2k-5k people. The actual people who read my book obviously aren’t all in that target demographic (not by a long shot!), but I’m hoping some impressionable teenagers — I mean, clever and discerning young readers — will see the post and be tempted to check out the campaign. In all likelihood this marketing scheme will fail miserably, but heck, what’s life without a little risk? I’ll let you know if anything actually comes of this marketing attempt.
In unrelated news, my roommate’s cats have taken to spooning on the chair beside my desk, and it’s ridiculously adorable.
That is all.
