Spreading the Roots and TAFTAF
Just as the title says, what makes a movement a movement? I've been pondering and contemplating this for hours upon days upon... well all 7 years of the book, but MUCH more recently of late, and i've concluded several things that I believe will truly help spread the word of the Ronin Saga:
- First and most important, content. An amazing book. Check (hopefully). But of course, the Catch-22 is that the book isn't out yet, so how do i generate interest and content without that? Well, that's my job. i.e. info on characters, fun events, quotes, anything and everything I can do to provide lots of entertaining content and never "fluff". Also, who "I" am. I don't have the book, but I have me (a poor substitute surely). Yet the thing to take from this is I want and need to stay connected to you all. So ALWAYS feel free to send me e-mails, PM's, comments or anything else.
- TAFTAF. What the heck is this? Simply put, "Tell A Friend to Tell A Friend." I realized that while a share is amazing, it has the potential to hit a roadblock. How many people just look at a post and go: "Oh that sounds like a cool book...." *then proceed to click on the next picture of a kitten, or some such thing*. I don't blame them, but to really spread the word.. We need to tell ONE (or two or three), SPECIFIC person (usually someone who is cool and close) and go: "Hey yo, Tim, can you like this page? And after, tell Jane she should do the same thing, and tell someone as well." This will truly spread the word, i believe. (And hopefully they like good books).
- Lastly, lots of book talks etc to come!
