I've written a zombie western book, you may have heard of it (or not--but you have now...hee,hee,hee), WANTED: Dead or Undead, and so far so good. Readers seem to enjoy the genre mashup and positive reviews have been rolling in (YES!). I took a gamble and wrote a story that was so different from anything I've ever written before and I'm so glad I did. It was one of the funnest stories I've ever written (book two in the series is proving mighty fun too).
But my heart really belongs to my contemporary pieces. There's no zombies or vampires or paranormal anything, just stories about real characters (well, as real as a fictional character can get) dealing with real types of life issues. The emotional ups and downs Desert Rice put me through will make this book one of my favorites--I love these characters. My hope is that readers will too.
The only way for me to know that is to put it out there in the world and see what kind of response it receives. So, this is what I propose... I'd like to give you (yes you) an advanced copy in the ebook format of your choosing. The official release date is August 15th, and I'd like to get some reviews and feedback up on sites likes Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble around that time. Just leave a comment below and let me know which ebook format you would prefer (fill out the comment form with your email--no one will see that but me). That would give you about 3 1/2 weeks to read the book before the GIVEAWAY! (Yippe! A Giveaway!).
THEN between August 13th and August 17th put your honest review up on Amazon, Goodreads, and where ever else you get the hankering to, and come back to my blog during that week for a chance to win a variety of Amazon Gift Cards (anywhere from $50 all the way down to $10--lots of opportunities to win. I'm trying to spread the joy).
You get a free book for your Kindle or Nook or iPad or other ereader AND a chance to win a gift card. All that is required from you is a little bit of your time. So leave a comment below to get your copy of Desert Rice. Between now and then, I will figure out how to work Rafflecopter (I haven't a clue) so when you come back the 13th of August it will be all geared up and ready to go.
Thanks everyone! I appreciate your help. I really hope you'll enjoy the book (fingers crossed).
