This following is a message from a former client of mine, Hank Quense. He has published a series of Self-publishing Guides that he is promoting this March. Read his message to find out how you can be entered to win one of the American Express Gift Cards that he is giving away.
I’ve written a series of four books to demystify the self-publishing and book marketing processes. I’ve spent a year on these Self-publishing Guides and now it’s time to get some book reviews for all four books. I have a plan to encourage folks to write and post positive reviews for my books. I’m calling it a Review Blitz and it will involve giveaways. I’ll be giving away American Express Gift Cards to be awarded via a random drawing.
Step 1) Select one of these books to read and review:
Self-publishing a Book
Marketing Plans for Self-publishing Authors
Manage Your Self-publishing Project
Business Basics for Authors
You can find out more about these books on my Amazon page or on my Strange Worlds Online website. You can also download a brochure.
Step 2) Send me an email at email@example.com telling me which book you chose and I’ll send a 100% discount coupon to download the book from Smashwords in the format you wish. (Note: this is a different email address than my usual email address)
Step 3) post your review during the week of 3/1 thru 3/7/14
Step 4) For extra credit (and rewards), write a blog and post it during the week of 3/1 thru 3/7/14.
Step 5) Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org when the review is posted. If you wrote a blog post, send me a link to the site in addition to the review posting.
Here’s how the drawing will work.
- If you write a review and post it on Amazon, you’ll get entered into a contest for a $50 gift card.
- If you post the review on Amazon AND Goodreads, you’ll have two entires in the $50 gift card drawing.
- If you post a review on Amazon AND write a blog post about the book, you’ll get an entry into a drawing for a $100 gift card.
- If you post a review on Amazon AND Goodreads AND write a blog post, you’ll get two entires in the $100 drawing.
CAUTION: posting stuff outside the week of 3/1 thru 3/7/14 will be appreciated but will not qualify you for the drawings.
