Just dropped by to impart the good news. In the name of marketing, promotion, and shameless whoring for reviews, I’m doing a Goodreads Giveaway during the Month of March. Up for grabs…
5 ARC (Advanced Reading Copies) of my upcoming novel, ‘When Lucifer Met Calamity’.
That’s right folks, you have the chance to get your hands on it before the official publication date, April 18th. Be aware, since these are advanced reading copies…they may still have evil typos that I haven’t disposed of yet and minor changes that I’ve yet to make. Winners will get the ‘proof’ copy of the book…and it may actually say that on there. You have been warned.
Contest Cut Off: This Giveaway will cut the ‘Guess the Rules’ contest short by a week or so. It was to end anyway on April 13th. Since I will be mailing out the winners their books on April 1st (or thereabouts), the contest will likely end by April 8th – April 10th (because after that..The Rules will be ‘in the street’ so to speak)
US Only: Honesty, I feel a little guilty about this but once again, only US residents are available to enter/win. This is not due to prejudice or unawareness on my part of foreign nations and the millions of readers that populate these wondrous places. It basically has to due with expense. I looked into postage costs for Canada and Mexico… foolishly thinking that because both are geographically closer to Texas than say Mainland China, the postage might not be too bad… Eh, yeah, that was a pipe dream. The cost to send a 2lb book to Canada was like $28.00. That’s like twice the price of the book itself…and about 4x the cost of an e-Book. Sorry, guys, I’m a starving writer….can’t afford that. On the bright side, since the prize for the “Guess the Rules“ contest is sent electronically, you can entry and win that one. (woohoo!) Yeah, ok, I know. I’ll stop.
International Availability. Yes, both of my novels are available internationally via Amazon….I only posted the standard US Amazon link but in fact ‘Dominic’s Nemesis’ and ‘When Lucifer Met Calamity’ (pre-order) are available via Amazon UK (United Kingdom), DE (Germany), FR (France), ES (Spain) , IT (Italy), NL (Netherlands), JP (Japan), BR (Brazil), CA (Canada), MX (Mexico), AU (Australia), IN (India). I don’t list all the links because I figured it was implied…and honestly, I was being a wee bit lazy. It happens.
Ok…on to the juicy stuff. The Giveaway starts March 1, 2016 and will run through March 31, 2016. Giveaway books will be mailed out on April 1, 2016. Entry widget is posted below…will go live on March 1st.
