I frosted Cupcake the a couple of days ago, and now there are weird lumps on my piping and bag. I know her moist bread is pink, but I don't think it's that. You might want to take Cupcake to the doctor. I don't think I'll be seeing Cupcake anymore, will you let her know? This is Chad.
H-ha ha! N-nice joke, Tomoyo... y-you really got me ha ha ha
This is more for the anon asking how to build hype for a book. A local-ish author here does the convention circuit and offers his books there, also does some panels with other local authors. This may be more effective somewhere with a population density larger than 1.3 per km2 ...
Sup, country-anon. Hopefully this reaches self-published anon. The convention circuit definitely reaches the enthusiast crowd. Winning awards (big and small) helps, too. Submit your work for everything, but don't tell anyone about it -- only mention the wins.
Sakura and Tomoyo Clone Army. The initial idea behind Tomoyo42's room was that there were a bunch of bunch of Tomoyo and Sakura clones grown in a big vat and some of them turned out a bit different from the originals...... an alternative name under consideration at one point was "the magical girl hole".
Do you know any ways to build hype/interest in a book?, I mean with comics/games you can draw characters but I can't imagine anyone being interested in a self-published book by someone they don't know... Also I feel like I'm being too weeb when I name my characters what should I do?
Honestly, this is outside of my experience so I really don't know. Sorry... ;~;Still, a few evil suggestions: You can always try and use social media and attach a viral sob story to your book ("BadguygroupX said goodguygroupYs couldn't write a novel... WELL I SHOWED THEM!" or "I dedicated my life to chasing my dream. Here it is.", etc.) or you can weasel your way into a popular clique and have members promote your stuff (especially effective if promoting your stuff makes them look good) ...... And of course you can reach readers, reviewers, and taste-makers directly on all sorts of message boards, 4chan, twitter, or go straight to kickstarter ("I finished my book -- this is a preorder campaign") ... You an also try gain readers by associating with established names (e.g. get someone popular to write an introduction to the book, write a review, or hire a artist that's popular with your demographic to do the cover art)...... and you can also try unconventional stuff like maybe producing youtube audio books or the like... hrrm... And you can just release your first chapter or two and spam the link everywhere, of course... hhm...Well, I'm sure you've already thought of all that stuff already, though. Maybe you can ask a successful self-published author how they did it...? I really have no idea. ;w;
