DarkFuse has been doing a lot of stuff for The Hoard, recently. If you’re a fan or friend on facebook (more on that later) then you’ve probably seen a lot of this. But for those who haven’t:
The Hoard announced on the darkfuse blog (which you should follow).
The Hoard at DarkFuse.com. Ordering info will eventually go here.
2 Sample chapters. This is one of those times when I feel I shouldn’t write such short chapters.
The Hoard’s goodreads page. Maybe add it to your to-read list!
The Hoard’s Facebook page. If you follow one thing, follow this. It is the hub. There are going to be giveaways and other festivities leading up to the release of the book. If you’d like to be kept up-to-date, like this page. Note: DarkFuse controls this page, so this isn’t going to be redundant info if you’re already my friend/fan on facebook. If you want to know what’s going on, it really is best to just like this page.
This all brings up the issue of social networking redundancy. If you follow my blog, my twitter, my facebook account and my facebook page, then you might hear the same news 4 times in a row. I automatically feed my blog into google+, and sometimes also post it on twitter and my 2 FBs. There’s so much cross-posting that I fear annoying people, but I fear leaving people in the dark more.
Let me say this: if you are both a friend and a fan on facebook, then drop one. My facebook account has everything my fan page does, but not the other way around. IE, I post goofy stuff and important announcements on my “friending” account, while I try to just post important announcements on my “liking” page.
