UPDATE: Just struck me, how will I know if this is helping? Drop Terry a note if you buy, maybe?
I recently received a special episode of Terry Fallis' podcast of "The High Road." Hope you've already been listening, but if you haven't, it's attached here. The gist of it is this:
"...So while I have always preached that social media is not really an appropriate platform for hardcore selling, I’m going to cross the line this once, but I think all for a good cause. If you want to have a hand in reshaping the approach traditional publishers like McClelland & Stewart have historically adopted, please take a second to buy The High Road. Here are Amazon and Indigo links, and you’ll also find links in the left hand side bar.
If we can show that the podcast helped to drive early sales, M&S will be more likely to consider podasting to be an effective way to promote new titles. As always, thanks for all the support. The High Road hits bookstores today (September 7th), so now is the perfect time to place that order. Besides, the holiday season is just around the corner. Thank you all, I’m grateful…"
I'm still unemployed -- but yeah, I'm thinking...
