My e-book, The Late Bird, is just over one week old, and I never gave it a real celebration. So, to fix that, I'm hosting a launch party giveaway!
Yup, I'm giving away a copy of The Late Bird to someone who comments on this post, and I might be giving away as many as 10 copies. It all depends on what happens when The Late Bird goes birdo-a-mano with Shel Silverstein.
|By the way... I found where.|
Now, I love those books, but the geek in me got to wondering what it takes to move into the top five on that chart. And I figure if there's ever a time that it's likely for me to observe that, it's when I'm actively launching The Late Bird.
So, of Course... A GIVEAWAY!Yup. You don't have to do ANYTHING other than leave a comment here for a chance to win The Late Bird. I'll count the comments at 11:59 PM on Monday, April 23 and give away a copy to a random commenter (number taken from Random.org).
And, I'll give away another copy for each place the Late Bird moves up (if any) in the top 5.
If somehow the Bird gets to number one, I'll give away 10 copies. I'll hold to this through May 15th, even though the comments close Monday. Also, I will buy a copy of each Shel Silverstein book that gets passed for the library where I volunteer, if it isn't already on the shelves (which might be all 4).
I'll need your email address to get you the book, so I'll have to contact the winner(s) - make sure you don't comment anonymously!
Wow, Greg. Can I Do Anything Else Beside Comment?Sure you can! You can tell your friends about The Late Bird and this giveaway. You can buy dozens of copies of the book to up your odds of winning here (then send the copy you win to someone else, cuz it can go to any email address). Or you can buy one, even. You can let folks know they don't need a Kindle to read the book.
add tags on Amazon that fit the book. You can follow along the list to make it a spectator sport and share in geekery with me!
And most of all, you can realize that I really am just celebrating the release of the e-book and, despite my geeky desire to gather statistics, I truly am happy to have all of you here to share my excitement with, and I hope you'll join in the fun for that reason alone. You're all a huge part of why the book exists, and I truly didn't put out the e-book to rival one of my poetry heroes.
Let the Games Begin!Thanks for sticking around these parts. I look forward to giving at least one of you a copy of The Late Bird. Will it be you? Only if you comment, I say! So let the fun begin....
(EDITED TO ADD: Mike Hays, commenter 38, is the big winner!)
