Reviewers' Reward Result

Monday, June 17, 2013



Happy Monday!

I’d like to thank those who’ve read and reviewed Christine’s Odyssey. I’m more grateful than I can say. The Reviewers’ Reward Giveaway is at an end an Medeia Sharif is the lucky winner of a $20.00 Amazon Gift Card. Congrats, Medeia!

 If you’ve read Christine’s Odyssey or have the opportunity to do so in the near future, I’d still appreciate you leaving a review somewhere. Every review helps in terms of the choices I’m making as it pertains to promotion. Today, Christine is on Book Blast, which is low-cost advertising. We’ll see how that goes.

Other than that, I have some work to do on a middle-grade novel about a boy who can’t seem to stay out of trouble. I’m entering that one in a local competition and the deadline is pretty close, so it’s time to shut off the world and do the nose to the grindstone thing.  After that, I go back to juggling the book to do with Christine’s younger brother as well as a romance novel that should have been edited years ago.

New week. New opportunities. What are you doing to take advantage of both?

  8. I love building relationships with readers and bloggers. So I'm definitely enjoying the promo I've been doing thus far. But as an aspiring author I definitely didn't realize the magnitude of promo. Keeps you on your toes, doesn't it.

  12. Emily, this little guys been fun to write.

    Reese, true that. I got thrown into the promo side of things and had to learn quick. The relationships and support have been more than valuable.

    Thanks Elise. I hope I make the deadline.

    Sheena, yeah I am. My MG novels have a way of ending up there. Haven't entered in a couple of years, so thought I'd make it a target and thereby finish something. :)

    Thanks, Medeia, you're a wonderful pal. Hugs.
