Thank you, Silver Threading, for this post and the feedback of how your authors did on Thunderclap. I think, even though 2 did not reach target, the results are still pretty inspiring.
Now my question to my P’kaboo authors:
Should we thunderclap our books?
It is a program with intense author involvement, but we’ve done that type before, with our facebook & twitter “likes” campaign and others.
Oh, ok, second edit: Here is how it works.
It’s like crowd funding, except that the currency targeted is not money but publicity. If you reach a certain number of supporters, Thunderclap publicizes you to a large social network. If you don’t make target (even if you’re only short by 1), then nothing happens. I think it’s worth a shot, especially if we can pair it with some other publicity push?
Oh, and 4th edit: It’s a free program, at entry level. Your supporters don’t have to fork out a cent, they only have to “fork out” a click. (I haven’t checked out the other levels.)
Let me know if you’re in. If you’re self-conscious, email me instead of commenting.
