On the Campaign Trail

Why should the likes of Obama and Ron Paul get all the fun of being on campaign? 

Thanks to Rachael Harrie of Rach Writes many bloggers and authors will be participating in a campaign to support each other from August 22 to October 31.

I’ve never participated in anything like this before so I’m game to get going.  If you’d like to join you’d better hurry and sign up because last I looked there were already over 100 participants.  From what I hear, it’s a blast!

To introduce myself to my fellow campaigners:  My name is Angela Yuriko Smith.  Last May 2011 I published a paranormal fiction titled End of Mae.  I’ve had a lot of fun testing creative marketing techniques on End of Mae, the results of which I just published in my second book: No Money Marketing: All You Need Is Like.  My marketing had to be virtually free and effective.  And go beyond the usual ‘use Twitter and Facebook’ advice ;p

Right now I live in Australia with my husband but we are preparing right now to go to the US.  I’m excited to be joining the campaign trail!  ;D

    Hi Angela, Greetings from a fellow campaigner. (This is so much more fun than running for office, isn’t it?) I’m intrigued by the No Money Marketing concept, as it is within my budget! I look forward to learning more about you and your writing.

    • So much more fun, and we don’t have to feel ashamed of ourselves ;p No Money is my favorite price so we’re together on that – I’ll be doing a Q&A session on Sept 2nd at Goodreads if you want to drop by. The info is under my events tab. Good to meet you!

    Fellow campaigner trolling around to see what’s out there. It’s really amazing how much we all have in common in some ways. Let me (prematurely) welcome you back to the US. I’m a native Jerseyan – small world. Looking forward to your posts and will be picking up a copy of your book – what’s better than ideas for free marketing!
