I was thinking about blogging a scene once every week. Then, I thought I would send it out in a newsletter, again once a week, instead. If I do that should I blog or put the entire prequel in a newsletter? Or would it be better to put only part of it in the newsletter or blog then later publish it as a free eBook?
I like the blog idea because it would allow readers to make and read comments, which, of course, is the purpose. Also, previous scenes would be available to those who started reading after the first scene was posted. The only drawback that I’ve thought of is that I would not know how many readers I have since my blog is part of my website.
The newsletter idea is appealing because I would know how many people have signed up for the weekly issues. I could also add news about contests, book launches, etc. The disadvantage, is that no one would be able to make comments. However, as I sit at my laptop and write this blog post, I realize I could send the readers to my website and have them make comments on my forum. Hmm, that could work, too.
What do you think? What have you done to help promote your first book?
