Where's Konrath? Blog Tour Day #22

To promote my horror novel, AFRAID, which debuts March 31, I'm appearing on different blogs every single day in March.

Please follow my daily journey, and broaden your blog-reading horizons.

Today I visit Marci Catania at Travels of a Bookworm:

Marci was also kind enough to review Afraid:

Rowena Cherry also kindly reviewed Afraid:

If you've been promised a review copy of Afraid, but haven't received it yet, email me and we'll sort things out.

For those who have received it and are wondering where to post your reviews, here are some options:
Am I missing any review sites? If so, please list them in the comments and I'll add them to the list.

Twitter doesn't allow enough space to review books, but it's great way to link to your review elsewhere on the net.

Amazon.com doesn't allow reviews until Afraid's release date on March 31, though you can review it now on Amazon.co.uk. A work around is to start a new discussion, or add to an existing one, in Amazon Customer Communities:

Speaking of Amazon, did you know that authors can blog there?

As always, thanks for tuning in...

I'm unsure what the terms are, but I believe if one of your reviewers is registered on www.indiebound.org as an independent bookseller, they can post an AFRAID review to the Indie Next List. Nice way to score a highlight in an under served and well deserving business community.

Hi,

Thanks for the books. A suggestion: you might consider putting your name in the filename of the downloads, too.

Joe,
On Facebook, there is also We Read. I've already posted my preliminary review there, and also on Goodreads.

Reviews can also be posted on Waterstones, Blackwells, Tesco, Forbidden Planet, Zoot, all the Ning sites, Chapters.Indigo.ca and many more.

There are people on the paranormal romance yahoogroup simply panting to read my review of Afraid... and there are some speculative/paranormal elements, so I shall.

I stayed up reading until about three am this morning, so may revise my review to add a tad more of my impressions.

Very gripping, and I loved the ending.

best wishes,

Thanks Joe for coming and visiting my blog and answering a few questions. Such a treat! Have to do it again sometime soon! Maybe, for CHERRY BOMB....
