Hooked into Werewolf Fiction!


Just to show that blog tours and twitter marketing really do work – I’ve recently stumbled across multiple references to Naomi Clark’s latest book, DARK HUNT.  She’s kicking off a blog tour, and her publisher, QueeredFiction, has been doing a great job of keeping folks informed via twitter updates.

I saw the first twitter update, didn’t pay much attention.

Saw the 2nd, and thought hmm… who is Naomi Clark…. but didn’t click the link.

By the 3rd or 4th, I caught a reference about werewolves and thought kewl, haven’t read a lesbian werewolf story yet.  So clicked the link.  Poked around her website some.  Went away.

Then saw the twitter update AGAIN.  And thought, I should go see if I like her writing.  So poked around some more… Saw it was the 2nd in a series.  So figure I need to get the 1st right?  Well, I stuck DARK HUNT on my amazon wishlist anyway.

Then saw the blog tour mentioned AGAIN, with a ‘free’ coupon for the 1st book.  So jumped on that for sure.

And finally, whilst pulling together the links for this post, I found her free story that introduces the main characters in her werewolf series.  Again, must read!

Anyway, all this to show how much repeat marketing it takes to get me to click a link and finally decide to make a purchase 🙂

ps – just noticed she’s from the UK.  I wonder if she writes with an accent?  (tee hee)

pps – Naomi – If you stumble on this post – do your other books have lesbian/queer content or just this series?!?  Inquiring minds want to know…

  • Emma Donahue
  • April Sinclair
  • Jeannette Winterson

and a scattering of books like The Fires of Bride and Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel books, and Larissa Lai’s “Salt Fish Girl”.

…and a whole thread on SF/F lesbian-themed books with too many recommendations to retype here!
