So we’re less than two weeks away from the October 5 release of The Charlatan’s Boy. I’m in rabid self-promotion mode. To that end, I have set up an author page on Facebook, as distinct from my regular Facebook page. If you don’t mind, please go to that page and click the ‘Like’ button. (Here’s the link). And if you want to suggest the page to your friends (there’s a link right under the profile picture of the book cover) or ‘Share’ it (bottom left), well, that would be fine too. ‘Liking’ my page is an easy way to broaden the reach of my marketing efforts.
One thing you will see on my author page is the following movie, which one might call a book trailer (though I won’t, since that term annoys me).

The biggest thing happening on my Facebook page in the near future is the Feechie Film Festival. The idea is to take a short movie of yourself (or someone you love) telling why you do or don’t believe in feechiefolk, and upload (or link) it to my facebook page. I should be able to provide a few more details in the near future, but in the meanwhile, pull out your digicam. By way of inspiration, here are my friends Russ and Pete articulating their respective positions on the feechiefolk question.

Here’s Russ:

And here’s Pete:

As anyone who knows Pete and Russ can attest, neither of them is more clever than you, dear reader. So I look forward to seeing what you contribute to the Feechie Film Festival.

    Oooh, this sounds like a lot of fun. 😀
    If I get one put together, do I have to put it on Facebook? I don’t have a FB account (and can’t get one). Also, is it required to show my face?

      Good questions both, Jenni. No, you won’t have to have a Facebook account to participate. There will be a Feechie Film Festival page on this blog, and your video would be on that page. If you have some way to get it on youtube, we could embed it in the blog. And if you don’t, we’ll come up with another plan. As for not showing your face, that’s not a problem at all. I’m sure you can come up with something brilliant that doesn’t unmask your superhero identity…

    Does saying out loud that someone doesn’t believe in…them…kill one like it does fairies? If so, should we start clapping to bring them back to life?
    For the record, I do believe in Feechies! I do! I do!! I DO BELIEVE IN FEECHIES!!!
