Marathon Scheduling

So regular readers of my blog will notice that a lot of my posts have been about my books. In fact, they are marketing posts in an attempt to bolster sales and increase awareness and interest. I have been trying to do one for each book each day but it all takes time.

With that in mind, I decided to take a bunch of them and create a rolling schedule. So that’s what I have ben doing the last two weeks. I now have posts scheduled for each book for each day for the rest of the year! Over 1000 posts scheduled. So whatever happens you’ll be hearing from me every day until at least the end of the year.

This will leave me the time to do other original posts. I will still be doing Ronovan’s weekly Haiku challenge. I will also try and do something for the Daily Prompt. Having said that a heavy cold has meant I missed yesterday’s already!

I hope it doesn’t make the blog too repetitive – it’s an experiment to see if I can drum up more sales. We’ll see how it goes.

A Spring of Dreams – Starfire

Starfire

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Made of crystal
So clear
It can hardly be seen
The breadth of seven men
The height of the clouds
The top unseen
Inside
Sparking and crackling
Impossible
Bright and pure
It is filled with
Starfire
For miles around
The land knows no dark
Ever
The question might be asked
Why it was built
Were there anyone around
To ask it
