Thank you to the handful of brave souls who have entered the “Blood Skies” giveaway contest to win a free copy of the novel.
I’ve received several personal comments that have left me a tad disheartened about the contest itself, however. Things like “That’s hard”, “I may have to think about that”, “I have no idea where to even start”, and “What the $!@# is wrong with you?” among the most popular. It seems in my attempt to avoid coming up with a contest idea on my own, I presented a challenge that may have proved a tad too difficult to encourage easy participation.
But even though participation in the contest has been minimal, “Blood Skies” has received a TON of love from people sharing my recent promotional posts on Twitter and Facebook (and likely elsewhere), particularly since I posted the cover art. I’ve also received numerous shout outs and private messages from people expressing enthusiasm about the release.
So, as a way of saying thank you, if you’ve Re-Tweeted or Shared information about “Blood Skies” since Monday of this week (when I first posted the cover art), I’ve automatically entered you into the drawing for a FREE copy of “Blood Skies” when it releases. (And I’ve upped the total number of copies I’m giving away.) That’s right — you may have entered without even knowing it…or even wanting to! Too bad for you! HA HA!!! (How’s THAT for involving your audience!) =D
Anyone who Re-Tweets or Shares anything that I post about “Blood Skies” between now and June 7th will also be entered. (If you’re doing so in a way that doesn’t involve Twitter or Facebook, you may want to comment here so that I know what you’ve done.) In the meantime, the original contest continues for those who wish to participate.
Thank you very much to everyone for all of the support.
