August is my birthday month and anyone who knows me knows I love giving away books around my birthday. So for the month of August, I have a fun giveaway that rewards my favorite people--my readers.
Reviews are something that every author needs in order to compete in today's book world, and I don't always ask people to write them or post them. Now that I've branched out into ebooks, I really could use some fresh reviews from readers who want to share their thoughts and feelings about my work.
I appreciate honest reviews, so even if you don't think my work deserves 5 stars, if you follow the rules of this giveaway, I'll still give you your prize.
Here's how the giveaways will work...
Read any of my novels, whether print or ebook (the text is the same). I have 5 titles available for you to buy and review: Whale Song, The River, Divine Intervention, Remote Control, and Skeletons in the Closet & Other Creepy Stories. The last 2 are not on every review site listed below.
Write a short, honest review. It doesn't have to give a detailed account of the story plot. I really want to know what YOU thought and felt, what made you read it. I want to know why you'd recommend my book to your friends--or not.
Send me the links to your reviews once they've been published and by August 31st, 2010.
You'll get 1 point for every review you post. Please note: you get 1 point per book title so though Amazon will post your review to multiple editions, you will only get the 1 point.
33-40 points - will receive an ebook of my upcoming new release Lancelot's Lady, plus your name as a character in one of my next novels (or a name of your choosing), plus an ebook of that book once it's published.
24-32 points - will receive 2 ebooks of your choosing from my current list, plus a special thank you on the Acknowledgement page of one of my new novels.
17-24 points - will receive 2 ebooks of your choice from my current list.
6-16 points - will receive 1 ebook of your choice from my current list, plus a special thank you on the Acknowledgement page of one of my new novels.
1-5 points - will receive 1 ebook of your choice from my current list.
Important notice: You can start reading and reviewing now--I'll give you a head start! Any existing reviews on the above review sites that you've already done will count towards this contest, but you must write and post at least one review in August 2010.
Everyone must email me with those links to reviews to qualify.
Prizes will be awarded in the first 2 weeks of September.
