Trying A New Marketing Approach–Amazon Giveaways

So far, I love Goodreads giveaways the best with LibraryThing coming in second. I’m always open to experimenting or trying something new, especially regarding promotion and marketing myself as an author.

I’m trying an Amazon Giveaway for the first time…To be honest, I have no idea if Amazon will let readers know they have a chance to win or if I’m supposed to find willing participants by my lonesome…I guess on May 11th I’ll find out 🙂

Plenty of Fish OTHER SITES

For a chance to win the kindle version of my suspense short Plenty of Fish, please click here. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. This giveaway ends May 11th or when all prizes are claimed. To see official rules, click here.

GOOD LUCK to any reader who participates!!!

Something’s Amiss Goodreads Giveaway!!!

It’s that time again for more free stuff!!! My Goodreads giveaway ends May 11th–Mother’s Day. Something’s Amiss would be a beautiful gift to give to someone you love. It explores loss and love, something everyone goes through. My favorite scenes were Poe bonding with the little girl, Raven.

WIN ONE FREE AUTOGRAPHED PAPERBACK!!!

Here’s the link to enter if anyone’s interested: Something’s Amiss Goodreads Giveaway

21795800.jpg2Oliver never thought he’d see his ex, Poe, step foot in Rhode Island again. But, she returns a year later to pay her respects for the loss of Jenna, his cousin. Deciding life’s too short, Oliver plans to fight for what he wants. Can he convince Poe to give him a second chance? Or will old resentments resurface?

Poe’s life is going well in Pittsburgh. Her comic book is in production, and she has a great social life. Her world is shattered when she finds out her best friend, Jenna, passed away. She goes to Rhode Island, planning to attend the funeral. Poe  gets an unexpected surprise when she bonds with Jenna’s younger daughter, Raven. And, for a long time, she thought her ex hated her. Soon, she realizes, maybe she was wrong.

Good luck to all who participates in the giveaway!!!
