Word of Mouth and Book Promotion ~ Virtually Amazing!

Ever been in a virtual world, like Second Life?

That’s where I do 99.9% of my Book Promotion

It’s also where I have fun and fascinating relationships, deal with people’s hang-ups and foibles, and, quit often, hang-out on my houseboat and Chill :-)

Joel Friedlander asked me to do a guest post for him about my experiences on Book Island in Second Life.

Hop on over to, Second Life: Virtual Book Promotion and Word of Mouth, give it a read, and perhaps leave a comment; and, if I’m real lucky, you’ll also come back here and comment :-)

    I tried Second Life once shortly after I watched a two part episode of CSI: New York that featured an assassin using the game to hunt her targets.

    Unfortunately I didn’t know what to do with myself after character creation and so I stopped playing. I’d have to dig through my emails just to find out what my character name was…

    I find what you are doing in Second Life to be fascinating and brilliant. I had heard that businesses and schools were making use of the game to do stuff like this but it seemed like a flash in the pan sort of thing. I guess it’s still going on and doing quite well then. I’m starting to get some ideas…

      I remember visiting a CSI-crime scene in SL:-)

      You could either dig through your emails for your old avatar or just created a new one, eh?

      Also, lots of businesses did come in-world yet the ones who stayed are there for more than just the money

      Glad you’re getting “ideas”.

      Come visit us on Book Island :-)
