Lisa's Lair

Hi everyone –

As you can see, I did survive the trip to New York! YAY! Thanks so much for all your good thoughts and emails… You rock!!!

So the brief run down from RWA National is that not only did I not get lost, I had a great time and met some amazing writers!!!


Me and the Fabulous Angie Fox at the Literacy Signing

And I got to meet one of my Twitter buddies and

Author of Goodnight Tweetheart, Teresa Medeiros!!!


I also got to see a Broadway show! J We went to see The Addams Family!


It was Brooke Shields’ second show as Morticia! She did a super job… J And afterward I got to meet her!!!!


She was very sweet and spoke to every single kid who had waited after the show to see her… Nice lady!

I also got a pic with Roger Rees who played a spectacular Gomez! We loved him!!! J

(Not sure why my phone camera decided to wig-out, but oh well…)


And here is the surreal moment of the NYC conference…

My Night Walker promo was in the Goodie Room!!!


The trading cards went like hotcakes! I had to replenish the Calisto cards every time I visited! YAY!

For my writer friends who have been asking about the publisher spotlights, I attended the Samhain, St. Martin’s and TOR spotlights. All three want paranormal and urban fantasy. TOR is also looking for mainstream YA. Samhain also wants steampunk, space opera, and superhero romances… Hope that helps! J

So now I’m back home with less than three weeks until Night Walker’s release… Yikes! 🙂

I’m doing all I can to get the word out about Night Walker. As a debut author, promotion is probably the biggest hurdle since I haven’t made a name for myself just yet. Nora Roberts and Stephen King can put a book out and people hunt for it…

Lisa Kessler puts it out there and most people don’t even know to look! LOL

But I’ve got a few plans, and I’m lucky to have the most AMAZING street team in the world behind me, so we’re shooting for world domination… Why not, right? J

First step? Goodreads! J

Night Walker has been added to three different Listopia lists. What’s that? I asked the same thing! LOL Basically they’re public lists that people vote on… As titles move up into the top 10 more people see them and add them to their to-read lists.

So if you could toss Night Walker a few votes that will really help to spread the word about the book…

Vote here for Best Cover of 2011…

http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/7253.Best_Book_Covers_2011#11557788

Vote here for First in New Series 2011…

http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/10342.First_In_Series_2011_#11557788

And you can Vote here for What’s the book you can’t wait to read this summer?

http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/10634.What_s_the_book_you_can_t_wait_to_read_this_summer_?page=6#11557788

And if you’re a Goodreads lover you can also recommend friends add Night Walker to their to-read lists. It’s super easy, just click on the Night Walker page http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/11557788-night-walkerand in the top right corner you’ll see “Recommend it” click that and it’ll show you a list of friends… Woot!

Next step in the quest for world domination? Tumblr! J

If you’re not on Tumblr yet, it’s simple, fast and a fun way to connect with people from around the world. It’s different than facebook and twitter… You post things and hope it gets “reblogged”… This kind of viral marketing can really give you exposure. You should see how Tumblr explodes every Sunday night after the new True Blood episode! LOL

If you love Eric Northman you are REALLY missing out not being on Tumblr! LOL And if you are on Tumblr, please look me up! http://LisaKessler.tumblr.com I’d love to follow you back!

This weekend I’m participating in another author blog-hop with a couple fabulous prizes, so I hope you’ll all swing by for the Treasure Hunt blog hop on Sunday… I’ll be giving away a signed copy of Night Walker and *drum roll* I think I’ll have posters of the Night Walker cover too!!! SQUEE!!!

Thanks SO much for all your support for Night Walker and me! I’m very nervous and excited with butterflies in my stomach as the calendar moves closer to August! Sorry to be so full of promotional craziness, but when you’re this close to your dreams you have to reach out a little farther, right?

See you Sunday, same bat time, same bat channel, and we’ll have some Mayan Mystery fun!!!
