    Well, this video is, of course, brilliant (:D), but I came here looking for information on this new ebook you’ve published… Is it going to be on Amazon soon, or you actually going to make me find the cord for my Kindle, so I can plug it into the computer and download it the old slow way from Smashwords? 😉

    Yes, GREAT video. Thanks for sharing!

    And yes, I also tend to agree that book promotion shouldn’t make your head explode (though arguably, it might be cool if it make your readers’ heads explode… figuratively speaking, of course!) Above all, promotion should be taken with a grain of salt (here’s a guide to social media, and how authors and writers should use it: http://www.livehacked.com/blogging-business/social-media/ )

    Thanks for the post, and thanks for noveldog.com. Love it!

    Cheers,
    Nick
