Contests! (aka Shameless - but much needed - Promotion!)

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog.

I have been told that 'word of mouth' is the best promotion for an up-and-coming author. With that in mind, I'd like to offer some incentives (prizes) for getting the word out about me and my debut collection, Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles.

Here's what I'm thinking:


1) If you already own a copy of Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles, and have finished reading it, visit Amazon and write a brief review. Let other readers know what you thought of the book, and help get the word out.

2) Post a reply here, or send me a message on Facebook, letting me know you wrote a review.

3) On April 14th, I will RANDOMLY select one winner from all reviewers. That person will receive a PDF of an exclusive, unpublished story of mine. The randomly-selected winner will be the ONLY person to own this story.

If you do not yet own a copy of Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles, this contest is for you.

1) Become a follower of my blog. There are several easy ways to do so. I'll make note of all new followers.

2) On April 14th, I will draw a RANDOM winner from all new followers. That person will win a free copy of Bedtime Stories for Carrion Beetles. I will contact the winner to discuss format and delivery method.
(or, if you already own the book, but are not yet a follower of my blog, I can offer an exclusive story PDF instead.)

Thank you and good luck! I greatly appreciate your help getting the word out!
