“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.
Here’s the deal.
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
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.”
Good luck, everyone!
