I’ve had this blog for a bit over a year now; I’ve gained quite a following. Still, it’s time for me to close up shop here on wordpress … sort of. I’m moving back to my original site: http://www.matthewdryan.com . It’s been a blast on here on A Toast to Dragons, but I’ve decided to centralize my efforts, upgrade the site, and add more functionality. I will keep the domain name: http://www.atoasttodragons.com and simply point it at http://www.matthewdryan.com (I think that’s how it works) so traffic destined for A Toast to Dragons will be redirected to the new site. It’s still going to be powered by WordPress, but unfortunately the followers are not automatically uploaded to the new site. Which means those of you who wish to follow the blog will have to re-follow (Sorry! 😦 ) Hopefully the transition will go smoothly and I won’t lose too many followers. Oh, and did I mention that the new site has a newsletter? You can sign up so you will be informed immediately when my next book comes out.
Facebook Fan Page Established: Yes, I’ve finally gotten around to it. I’ve started a fan page for my book, Drasmyr, on Facebook. You can find it at: http://www.facebook.com/Drasmyr. The fan page will contain cool things related to the book; specifically, I’ll be periodically listing excerpts, a cool quote or two, and even the occasional vampire poll. I’m still learning the ropes on the Facebook Fan Page, so it may take a while before things start going smoothly, but I’m a quick learner.
Long and Short Reviews Haunting Halloween Blogfest: “A Toast to Dragons” will be participating in a Halloween Blogfest at Long and Short Reviews (you may remember them; they reviewed my book, Drasmyr, here) this year. I wrote a short short story (under 1000 words) entitled “A Woman Scorned,” which will be posted on the LASR website on 11/1 at 10 a.m. (I will post a link that day). In the meantime, from 10/29/12 – 11/2/12 dozens of authors in all genres will be blogging at Long and Short Reviews!Every post will be offering a prize… all you have to do is leave a comment on the guest blog in question. One comment will be chosen at random at every blog to win — it might be you! So don your best costume and come party with us at the Halloween Blogfest. Note: For “A Woman Scorned,” the prize will be awarded to a commenter at the guest blog at the LASR site, NOT the normal biweekly blog at “A Toast to Dragons” which is due out the same day. For more information on the Blogfest go here: http://www.longandshortreviews.com/promo.htm.
The prize “A Toast to Dragons” is offering for one lucky commenter on “A Woman Scorned” is a set of metal miniatures; specifically, a pair of vampire counts and a pair of vampire slayers from the Classic Vampire Wars line by West Wind Productions Gothic Horror.
I am pleased to announce that Bewitching Blog Tours will be sponsoring a blog tour for myself and my book, “Drasmyr,” during the month of May. The tour will begin on May 7th. The particulars of the tour, including which sites I will be visiting, will be announced at some point in the future.
