Here's who I've already received info from:
C. L. Holland
Jeffrey B. Allen
Michael A. Ventrella
Stacy Danielle Stephens
I'll be sorting out the master copy on Monday, so if you'd like to have something included about you and your work, there's still time, but please send it to me before midday (US/Eastern) on this coming Monday.
If you want to send something, here's what I need you to do:
Send your info to firstname.lastname@example.org and please, please, please make sure you put the words 'PROMO STUFF FROM[YOUR NAME] FOR JON'S FUR-FACE CD' in the email header, so I can sort through everything more easily.
Also, don't forgot to clearly name any attachments you send me eg:
Fur-Face by Jon Gibbs - book cover.jpg
Bio/blurb for Jon Gibbs.doc
Chapter one of Fur-Face by Jon Gibbs.doc
Book trailer for Fur-Face by Jon Gibbs.wmv
I don't know how much room I'm going to need, so I'm setting a limit of one book promo per author and one short story promo per writer.
If you're an author, I'd like to include an author pic, a book cover pic, a copy of your book trailer if you have one, a one-page book blurb/author bio document along with the first chapter of your novel (on MS Word or PDF files). If you want to combine the blurb, bio and first chapters on the one file, that's feel free.
For short story writers, I need a picture of you (if you want to send one), a bio and up to two short stories (four if they're all less than 1,000 words) on MS Word or PDF files.
I plan to have three folders on the data CD, one for the various formats and promo stuff for Fur-Face, one with notes from my Fine Art of Self Promotion presentations and one labelled, 'Some of my friends.' Within the latter, there'll be a seperate folder for everyone who sends me stuff to include.
Don't forget to include plenty of links to your blogs, websites and relevant sales pages etc, so folks who want to can look you up online.
