Alien Jones, the Esteemed Brainy one here, reminding you to “Ask the Alien” a question and get plugs for your books and blogs in my answer right here on the Bookshelf Battle Blog, bookshelfbattle.com.
Help me get Bookshelf Q. Battler’s writing career up and running so my boss, the Mighty Potentate, will release me from this mission.
“But Alien Jones,” you ask. “What are the pros and cons of asking you, an alien, a question?”
- You help your planet become one answer smarter.
- You help promote self published authors and strike another blow in the Mighty Potentate’s war on reality television. You thought reality tv was harmless, didn’t you? But now a reality tv star is running for president. Next thing you know it’s Secretary of State Kardashian. Don’t say you weren’t warned, 3.5
- You’ll get a free plug and maybe even gain a new reader or two. I’ve helped 20 indie authors already.
- The Mighty Potentate won’t vaporize me.
Literally, nothing. Why are you humans so quick to look a gift alien in the mouth? A representative of a hyper intelligent species wants to share all the mysteries of the universe with you and you’re all still like, “Well, I dunno, let me kick the tires on this one and get back to you.”
So ask me, Alien Jones, a question today. You can ask away on twitter. Tweet @bookshelfbattle #AskTheAlien and our resident Blogger in Chief will forward your question to my ship.
Or, just leave it in the comments here.
“But Alien Jones, where else can I, a mere human, get in touch with you?”
If you can reach BQB on his other social media, go for it.
And finally, you might ask, “Alien Jones, how long will it take for you to answer my question?”
Normally, I try to answer questions in the order they’re asked. I used to bunch several questions into one column, but now I like to give each author a column all their own. That doesn’t mean that repeat askers aren’t welcome. They are. And if you’re one of the 3.5 people out there without a book to push, feel free to ask away. I like to help indie authors promote their works, but you don’t have to have something to promote in order to ask away.
Thank you, Earthlings. Continue your normal functions of duck faced selfies and scratching yourselves at inopportune times.
Alien Jones, signing off.
