Seedy Hills, an odd little town follows the daily adventures of Eric Green, a reporter for the local newspaper.  Eric is an arrogant, crusty, old time reporter who likes to get to the bottom of things.  Seedy Hills is not a normal town, and it keeps him busy.  When Bigfoot was spotted in the woods, the local hunters and trackers formed a posy to make it a trophy.  Eric went along on the expedition to get the story.  When UFO’s were seen above the Walmart, Eric spent the following night on a vigil to scoop the story and unexpected things happened.  Ghosts, vampires, and crop circles are only a few of the other occurrences that he reports to his readers who live in the odd little town of Seedy Hills.


With the manuscript complete it’s time for the media blitz, but promotion for an independent author is a huge challenge.  Even though the internet is a giant help, the majority of ads and posts are ignored by people.  To get attention you need to advertise big or advertise often, and the budget of an independent author does not allow advertising big.  The blitz is the most common tactic for the independent author.  The author must post on everything from twitter to blogs and comment on the new release with links and URLs.


The question at hand is does that tactic work effectively?  I guess I’ll find out soon!
