Rocktober Reflections


For my first Rocktober, I think it was a huge success. I got a lot of people talking about it, got a whole slew of reviews posted, and hopefully laid some groundwork for next year.

There were a couple moments that made all the work — and believe me, there was a LOT of work behind it! — worthwhile. Reviews of my books went up (and, as promised, those review writers have been asked if they’d like to be on the review team I’m working on building). Amazon put the print versions of ALL THREE Demo Tapes books on their 4-for-3 sale, where you pick four eligible books and get the most inexpensive one for free. That’s still going in, it looks like.

I know. It’d be a better deal if Trevor’s Song was in the mix. But… these things aren’t up to me, or it would be.

At any rate, to all who joined in to celebrate Rocktober, thank you. If all you did was hit a Retweet button, thank you. If you did more, put a post up, read a work of Rock Fiction… thank you.

Rock Fiction deserves to be its own genre.

Before I’m out of here and on to the next fun thing, let me tease you a bit… King Trevor, the follow-up to Trevor’s Song is currently scheduled for this year’s Susan’s Birthday Release. And I’d love to have Demo Tapes 4 out for you next Rocktober.

Keep on spreading the word…

    I would have liked to have done more. October was just a really rough month for me. I’m still going to review what I have left, including your books and hopefully next year I can do this up right! 🙂

    I would have also liked to have participated more, but life gets in the way!
    I did read two rock fiction books in October though, and my interviews with the authors will be on my blog this month. A bit late for Rocktober, but every month should be rock fiction month in my opinion! 🙂
    I’ve just finished reading a book that you’d like, Susan, B-Sides and Broken Hearts by Caryn Rose. If it’s not already on your to-read list, it should be! Look out for the giveaways on my blog this month of B-Sides and Broken Hearts, and Metallic Dreams!
