Starting sometime next week, I’m going to give random strangers on the train a copy of my novel GUESTLIST.
My plan of attack will be simple: I’ll approach people with books and eReaders, those who look like they like to read. I’ll ask if they’d like to read my book. If they say yes, it’s theirs. If not, I’ll tell them that I’m not asking them to buy it, I’m asking if they would be interested in reading it. If they still decline, then it’s on to the next one.
We’re not running a big operation over here, so I’ll probably only do this once a week, but hey. Whatever it takes to get the word out.
So, if you’re in NYC and you’d like to check out a dope debut novel by an up-and-coming author, keep an eye out for the handsome young brother offering one to his fellow straphangers.
