Okay before I get into the biggest news, let me say that the plan for my Corridors of the Dead roll-out is complete. Just to remind you, here are the prizes:
- First Place will be a $50 Amazon Gift Card (one winner).
- Second Place will be a $20 Amazon Gift Card (two winners).
- Third Place will be a signed copy of The Corridors of the Dead (three winners).
- Comment on the launch-day post, and you’ll earn one entry to the drawing.
- Tweet about either the post or link the Amazon page (and @crimnos it so I can see it or link it in the comments), and you’ll get two entries.
- Post about it on your facebook page or profile and either link me or send a screenshot to crimnos @ gmail.com, and you’ll get three entries.
- Purchase the book and forward the receipt to crimnos @ gmail.com, and you’ll get four entries.
- Write about it on your blog and get five entries.
Don’t worry, I’ll post all this again at the front of every post until Wednesday so that you remember on the big day. And now for the…uhm…just as big news! The Kayson Cycle is part of a blog tour with three other fantastic writers (seriously, check out their books too) where you can win up to an $80 Amazon gift card (enough to buy a Kindle! Or a butt-load of books). Details after the jump.
I’m seriously stoked to be part of this contest. Our incredible tour organizer Shannon Meyer has made it so easy to enter, and so easy to win. Like, for reals. This isn’t just marketing speak. I think my own giveaway is more complicated than this. The best thing is, 100% of the proceeds of every purchase of The Kayson Cycle is going to Doctors Without Borders, so you get something to read, you help us get the word out, and you get to contribute to a worthy cause.
Here’s how it works: on November 28 and/or 29, purchase 1 or all 4 of the debut author’s books listed here. Then forward each of your purchase receipts that Amazon emails you, to : firstname.lastname@example.org and get up to 4 entries into a draw for a $80 Amazon gift card. That way we have your name and email to let you know when you win!
On top of that, two random commenters picked from two of our participating blogs will receive $5 gift Amazon gift cards . So leave a comment and let us know what you think of the promo, our authors, our works, even just say hi, we’re not too proud to beg. You’d be helping us out and you’d be helping out your favorite blogger, as the blogger with the most comments also wins a prize. We’re prize crazy!! Here are the qualifying books:
Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven’s siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries.
Until Dawn: Last Light is a story of death and despair, love and longing, hope and hopelessness, and the ability to survive and keep going even when it seems impossible – when you want nothing more than to give up.
His quiet, predictable life crumbles when a mysterious stranger walks into his tavern bearing a proposal to find his long-lost brother and do the one thing that William has sworn to never do again – have his brother heal a woman. William soon learns that he can’t escape his family – or his destiny.
Includes an exclusive sample chapter of The Corridors of the Dead. Please note that this is a Kindle Single, and around 6,000 words in length.
But Sebastian carries a dark secret, one that more than threatens to tear them apart, it threatens to destroy them both and the love they have for each other.
Now Mara must make the ultimate choice. Will she live for love, or will she live to survive?
So yeah, no reviews required (and to be clear, my giveaway doesn’t ask for them either, just a mention), and all the books are .99 so the most you’re out is $3.98. All four combined are less than most Kindle books. I’ve already had family members lamenting that they can’t get in on it. All winners will be announced on December 7th on Wringing Out Words (http://shannonmayer.blogspot.com)
