I’ve had an idea to do something a little different with my book MORE. I helped a friend organise a book relay a few years ago and thought it seemed like a good idea to do with my own book. The idea is simple, get the book into as many hands of eager readers as possible and see how far the book travels before it eventually ends up with me.
How does it work?
Simple. I send out a paperback copy of MORE (bought by myself, it won’t cost anyone participating anything). The person that receives it reads it and then sends it on to the next person in the relay list. The last person to receive it will then read it and send it back to me. A list of names and addresses will be provided with the book for the purposes of sending it on. All I ask of anyone wanting to participate is that you are willing to pay to send it on to the next person (which may be UK or International).
Does this sound like something that would interest you? You don’t have to be a blogger, just being a reader is awesome enough. You don’t need to write a review (although reviews are ALWAYS appreciated). There is no pressure on you whatsoever. You just need to be willing to read it and send it on quickly-not hold on to it for a month for example-so as not to keep the next person waiting.
If you have any questions and/or would like to participate, please contact me via Facebook or email; firstname.lastname@example.org
I will update you when I know the date when it will begin. If you know someone who might also be willing, please feel free to point them in my direction. This isn’t only open to my current readers, it’s open to ANYONE at all, ANYWHERE.
Here’s a teaser for the book to whet your appetite…
I am very pleased to announce that my newest manuscript LOVED has been picked up for publication by my publishers, Limitless Publishing. I signed the contract just before Christmas – it was a great early Christmas present for me. I honestly couldn’t be happier. I have edits scheduled for April, so the book will release around May/June time, but I will keep you guys updated when I know an actual set date.
I can’t wait to see the cover. I am very nervous to see if they can capture the essence of the story. But I know that LP work with a lot of extremely talented cover artists and I have always been happy with the covers for my previous books with them. (of which, there are 4 so far.)
There will be a PR feature happening at the time of release, all set up by the amazing PR team at Blakelands Country House. They were kind enough to allow me to feature them in LOVED and contacted me not long after to extend an offer of a PR feature, which made me extremely happy. I can’t wait to see what happens from here.
I will be arranging a cover reveal as soon as I get it in my inbox. If you’d like to participate, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m always active on social media, even if I’m not around on the blog. You can email me: email@example.com or find me on Facebook.
Upon the release, I will be holding a giveaway. One lucky winner will take home a signed copy of LOVED and a teddy bear called Blake from Blakelands. He’s such a gorgeous little thing. There will also be snowflake themed swag (you’ll find out why when you read the book.)
So that’s it for now. I just wanted to share my news with my readers. Keep your eyes peeled for information on the cover reveal and the release date.
