I can hardly believe it. My stomach twists up in knots every time I think about it. Because, here's the thing: Not everyone is going to like my book. I can't even guarantee that YOU will like it. But you won't know unless you read it, right? And you can read it for only $4.99 on your ebook reader, so what have you got to lose?
The bigger question is, what have you got to win? The answer: A Kindle.
So, here are the details to my ultimate blog tour contest.
1) There will be two book giveaways. Signed copies of Perilous, of course. All you have to do to get in on that action is make a comment anywhere in the blog tour. The drawing will be completely random. Of course, the more comments you make, the more chances you have of winning.
2) There will be a Kindle giveaway. This WON'T be random. Kindles are kind of a big thing, so I'm going to make you work for it. The giveaway will be point based, in other words, whoever has the most points at the end of the blog tour wins the Kindle. The contest will run until Dec. 15, at which point all hopeful winners will email me at tamara at tamarahartheiner dot com with their points and their proofs.
Here's how you get points:
+1 for each comment on the blog tour
+1 be a follower on my blog (old or new)
+2 blog about the blog tour
(You prove all of those by emailing me the links.)
+5 purchase the book; ebook or paperback, doesn't matter
(Email me the confirmation number of your purchase.)
How many points will you get?
Oh, and if you've already bought the book, that counts too.
Don't want a Kindle? Already have one? I hear they make great Christmas presents. :)
Here are some helpful links:
paperback (I linked to my website, but you can also purchase through B&N and Amazon. I'm offering free shipping and handling and a lower price on preorders.)
Tomorrow I'm excited to announce that I'm hosting Lori Calabrese here on my blog! Her book, The Bug that Plagued the Third Grade, just came out from Dragonfly Publishing. It's so exciting to watch books come out!
