Hi everyone. A big round of thanks for help, comments, and words of encouragement with my cover reveal this week.
On my mid-week post I blogged about how I came up with the concept art. Today, I thought I'd share what I did on Facebook in the days leading up to the release. This was a spontaneous fun way to let people know the cover reveal was coming, and have a little fun with it.

What's it spell?

|Hey Babe, forget about the Most Interesting Man In The World. I can take you places he can't. Like four days into the future with my TARDIS to get a sneak peak of Stephen Tremp's cover reveal for ESCALATION.|
|Really, Steve? I promote your first two books to important and interesting people around the world. And you won't give me a sneak peak of the cover art for ESCALATION? Really?|
|Let's pass this budget. We don't want to miss the cover reveal of ESCALATION only three days away!|

|Great! NASA spends all this money to get a sneak peak at ESCALATION Cover Reveal, and now the International Space Station is ruined and I'm floating aimlessly in space. George Clooney, where the heck are you?|
Question: There has been talk around Blogdom regarding Cover Reveals and if they are effective any more, the concern being promo overload.
Have to admit, it has me thinking. I will help with Cover reveals through the rest of the year. Then in 2014 I will focus on more science and Sci-fi related posts. I have been getting away from my roots and trying to get back.
What are your thoughts on Cover Reveals as there sure are a lot (myself included) these days.
