A mix of my past that relates some way to my novel and interviews with current authors that I read while promoting my novel on Slush Pile Reader and Authonomy.

How Many Web Sites are Needed to Launch a Book?
I created a “Facebook” page for Saint Peter Killed God to announce the latest news about its release date. Every time I post an update on its wall, it automatically tweets it.
On my “Twitter” account, I see other writers posting my name on WW (Writer’s Wednesday) and I try to re-tweet it. I feel like I should give a shout out to all those I’ve read on Slush Pile Reader on WW, but it just haven’t had the time yet. Maybe over the summer.
I’ve also created a blog on “blogger” and every post ends up being duplicated on my “Goodreads’” author page.
To promote my blog, I got a “Book Blogs” account.
I tried to promote my blog on “Kindle Boards”, but they have all kinds of strange rules regarding their forums. I will try to promote SPKG there when it’s released.
I’ve got an account with “Linkedin” but I’m not sure how to use it.
When SPKG is released, I’ll look into “BookBuzzr.”
And on top of Facebook, twitter, blogger, Goodreads, Book Blogs, Kindle Boards, and Linkedin, I should probably get my own webpage.
Oh, I know I’m missing others. There seems to be an endless number of sites to promote your book. It seems that getting published is really only the first step. I feel like I'm missing some other web sites - any suggestions?
