For those of you who missed it (where were you?), yesterday was finally the day Carrion was released into the wild – I mean, launched. I’ll be the first to admit that social media isn’t something I’ve ever really got the hang of, so when there was a blog blitz on Friday, with nearly 25 bloggers sharing stuff about the launch, I struggled to keep up with it. This is good, though, isn’t it? Not that I struggled, but that fewer than 25 bloggers could generate that amount of traffic.

So, on the one hand, I was delighted – on the other hand, my day was filled with commenting, liking, sharing and otherwise responding to what was going on in the wonderful world of social media. And that backlog carried over to yesterday, which is why I’ve neglected some areas where I feel some extra effort should have been put in – by me, that is, not by anyone else.

Over the next day or so, I’ll share a handful of blog posts connected to the launch, because they stood out for me, offering something a little bit special.

The first of these is from Kerry at Chat About Books. Kerry has been a terrific support, offering way more than I could have asked. She shared another post last Monday, and there’ll be yet another today – though I’ll share it through my blog over the next few days (I am playing catch-up here!). The publication day promo was simple, but effective, and it included a couple of teasers at the end. Have a quick look – just click on the map.




And here’s another teaser just to keep you interested:

Rocks hadn’t been in the plan. Salin hadn’t mentioned any at all when they’d set out. Cordane would’ve remembered that. Because, even if they’d only been hinted at, he wouldn’t have got in the boat in the first place. And yet, here they were. A whole series of them, sticking up from the seething waters, sharp, angular edges glistening in the midday sun.



Some temptations are worth giving in to.
