8/28/17 UPDATE: The Kindle Scout campaign has ended. What fun! Thank you to all who helped Gracie have fun at the party. Now we wait to see if Kindle Press will choose JALAPENO CUPCAKE WENCH for publication. If not, I will publish the book myself. So stay tuned.
The reason I’m updating this post is to announce the winners of the giveaway. I’ve notified the three winners by email and am waiting to hear back.
Winner of the Kindle Paperwhite: Dominga G
Winners of one $50 Amazon Gift Card each: Christina G and Nancy L
That’s right … Gracie and Jalapeno Cupcake Wench are part of the Kindle Scout program until midnight EDT on August 27.
What does that mean?
For starters, it means you have the opportunity to receive a free Kindle copy of the first book of Gracie’s story.
All you need is an Amazon.com account. If you don’t have one, visit Amazon. Setting up an account is free and does not require a purchase. Then go here: https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/2NFU91307VBIW and click the Nominate button. The first 20 or so pages are available for you to read.
What happens next?
The book will be available to nominate until midnight EDT on August 27, after which you will receive an email from Kindle Scout letting you know whether the book was accepted for publication.
If so, you will receive a free Kindle copy about a week before the official launch.
If not, they will notify you when I publish the book so that you can be one of the first to purchase a copy in Kindle or paperback.
But Wait … There’s More!
To further entice you to vote for Gracie, I’m running a contest. It’s totally based on the honor system. The contest drawing will occur before I know whether the book is chosen.
All you have to do is send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me you nominated my book. Also please leave your name and a good contact email.
At the end of the campaign, I’ll draw three names.
The first name will win a Kindle Paperwhite ereader.
The next two names will each receive a $50 Amazon Gift Card.
So … go read.
Tell your friends.
After all, who doesn’t want the chance to get a great book that costs nothing except a few minutes of your time.
