a blog exploring new romance venues
Last winter I placed The Dark Huntsman, a Fantasy Romance of the Black Court on the shelves of The Book Nook, a virtual book store in Second Life run by fellow fantasy romance author Sharon Clare. If you are unfamiliar with Second Life, it’s a place online where you create an avatar of yourself and you can visit locations all over the world, different countries, cities, museums. In this case The Book Nook is a romance only store located in virtual London, Victoria. Isn’t that cool? My book is available in a virtual bookstore in London!
You can take your avatar and walk down the street in London, and walk right into the bookstore. It looks just like this, except these were taken December 2013, so I doubt Sharon has left the snowman and holiday rug out. When you click on the book you can read a blurb and there is a purchase link that takes you directly to Amazon, so you can buy the book. It’s just like buying a book in a real bookstore except you make the final purchase through your Amazon account and it shows up on your e-reader.
This month I added Prince by Blood and Bone to the virtual scene and I’m pretty excited to see it up on the shelves.
