News from the Clouds #askllew on Twitter and Periscope
I have been a very bad Unbound Author, not posting things in my shed. I am experiencing guilt.
I am trying to rectify the situation now.
The cover looks gorgeous doesn't it. I was so thrilled when I saw the first drafts. Brilliant design.
But what about what's inside the cover?
Due to the fact that many people have already received thier copies it's also very rewarding to hear their responses. I think it's fair to say the result has been overwhelmingly positive.
It's the final book and it does have an ending, I won't spoil it if you haven't read it yet, but there is an ending.
So, this Thursday afternoon (which is the same day that Clouds hits the shops) I am conducting an experiment with Twitter. I will be at their London offices answering questions as fast as I can on Twitter, (they are using me as a guinea pig to see how I use their software) but I will also being using the live video streaming app 'persicope' (https://www.periscope.tv/)
You can watch and fully interact with an iPhone or you can watch on Android phones or a browser. I've been told there is an Android version coming soon.
I've used it before and it's extraordinary, people ask questions and I can answer them by talking not typing. I have been told on many occasions that I can 'talk under wet cement' so I find this is a much easier way of answering questions.
I hope you can join me. I will be announcing exact times on the Twitters using the hashtag #askllew. Or you can add a question in the comments section below too.
Just in case, I'm @bobbyllew on the Twitters
Would love to hear what you think of News from the Clouds if you've read it, but remember, no spoilers!
In the meantime, leave a question here if you've got one and I promise, this time I really will answer it.
