It’s Campaigning time! (But I’d rather be a Crusader.)

So, the fourth crusade is up and running, and one of the requirements to join is to post about the campaign and link to it. So that, obviously, is what I’m doing write now. 😉

I’ve had a lot of fun with the third Platform-building Campaign, but I’m sorry, I have to say, to me, it just didn’t have the immense cool factor of the second Platform-building Crusade. I know that there were people who were offended by the word ‘Crusade’, and Rach made her call to change the name, but I just loved being a Crusader, and I’m a little sad that there were people whose feelings were hurt by that word.

If you don’t know what either the Campaign or Crusader are about, then basically it’s just a huge months-long fest of blogging writers linking to each other, getting to know each other, and having fun together. You can follow the links to Rach’s blog to find out more.

Moving on – Campaigner spotlight interviews! If you’re signing up for the Campaign too, and you’d like to do an interview and get the spotlight on your book or your blog or anything else you’d like to plug, you can reach me by:

  • Email at chrisken zero at gmail dot com (deciphering that email address shouldn’t be hard for anybody who isn’t a bot.)
  • Commenting on this post
  • Waiting for news about the Fourth Campaign yahoo group, which should be starting any time, and joining. I imagine I’ll be posting a call for Spotlight subjects there in the next few days.

If you’ve contributed an interview for the Third Campaigner Spotlights or the Nano spotlights in 2011, then I’d rather give new people a chance rather than give you a second chance, but I don’t mind you dropping me a line to let me know that you’re available in case I need somebody to fill a spot.

And, if you’d like to contribute questions for the interviews, post a comment below! I’ll probably vary the interview format a little, with a few questions that are sent to all spotlight bloggers, a few that are repeated often, and a few that are unique.

Hope to see you all on the Campaign trail!

    Am sitting out this round of the campaign as I’ve too many things to do… 😦 Hope you have a great time!
    Will probably be back for the August round 😀


  2. Just stopping by to say hi! I’m in short stories, Sci-fi, fantasy and YA of Rachael Harrie’s Writers’ Campaign. I’ve been a part of Rachael’s campaign for a while now. It’s amazing how we can network like this and meet some many awesome people.

    Hello, fellow platform builder campaigner. Hey, an interview sounds cool. Maybe I’ll ask for one when I get my book edited and published. I’ve got to say thanks for helping out the new publishers. I appreciate stuff like that.

    Hello! Just stopping in from the campaign and thought it would be fun to do an interview. I started blogging a little over a year ago and gave up because I wasn’t connecting with people with similar interests. I’ve restarted as of January and am loving this community! My WIP is mainstream, but I’m not sure I fit into an exact category. There’s romance, adventure, danger, medical, international. In real life I’m a R.N. and I lived in S. America for three years- so it’s based on my experience there.

    Hello, Chris! I am visiting your blog via Rach’s Campaign blog. I have only been blogging since Dec 2011 and actually have never done an interview before (although I am working with another blogger to possibly do one in the near future). I am thinking of way to draw readers to my blog ( and I think interviews are a great tool. I write PB, MG, YA, poetry and just about anything else that interests me. I’m excited to participate in my first campaign…


  6. I think we’ve met via Six Sentence Sunday, but I’m in the science fiction group at Rach’s Campaign blog. First time, so I don’t know quite what to expect.
