The Book Tour of the Great Queen

Morpheus Ravenna is crowdfunding her upcoming book on historical and modern devotions to the Morrigan, The Book of the Great Queen. The book is funded, and the campaign is reaching it’s final stretch goals: Funding a book tour.

Something most people who haven’t worked as a writer or a publisher might not know: The success of a book–any book, really–depends on promotions. Unless you’re name is so big that you can move paper by sheer inertia of celebrity, you have to work your ass off just to make sure that the people who want your book know that it’s available.

Profits in publishing have gotten so thin that the big publishers won’t–and the small publishers can’t–spend much on promotions, so it’s down to the authors themselves to get the word out. That’s why funding a tour for The Book of the Great Queen is a big deal.

This book is a big deal, too. We need more good scholarship on the shelves, especially when that scholarship comes from a position of understanding that the gods are real.
