It’s Day 9 of the virtual tour and today you can find me over at ‘rantin ravin and reading‘ guest blogging about How To Keep A Series Fresh. You can also read Kate’s fabulous review of Murder at the Maples – 4 and 1/2 stars, guys! Not bad.
Oh, you want to know about the Kindle Fire giveaway? Right – I should have known that was the only reason you carried on reading Running from October 15th to 31st over on The Kindle Book Review is this brilliant competition:
They are also giving away $200 worth of Amazon vouchers, and it’s easy to enter – click on the screenshot above to go to their site and follow the instructions. As you can see, Murder at the Maples is one of the 24 books sponsoring the giveaway, and I’ve already had lots of new Facebook likes, which I’m pretty sure are down to people entering the competition.
What did it cost me and why did I sign up?
My, you’re inquisitive today aren’t you? Well, it cost $15 to sign up for the promotion, which included a Tweeting package. I was happy to say yes – The Kindle Book Review is one of Jeff Bennington’s sites, and I’ve long been a fan of Jeff’s. It’s a popular resource, very pro-active in finding readers, and this is an attractive competition that will draw lots of eyes to the page – and my cover is right up there on the second row! Marketing isn’t just about finding a reader right now, it’s also about getting your name or book cover image in front of people so it becomes something they’ve seen around – if they don’t buy it now they might the next time it appears on their ‘Recommended list’ or pops up on Facebook. Plus there’s the extra likes on FB, Twitter followers, and possibly the odd book sale too – I really can’t lose.
Now, I must check with Jeff whether I’m allowed to enter the competition too … I really want a Kindle Fire! See you tomorrow for another exclusive interview x
