Yesterday's free promotion of Play the Man was a resounding success, and I have all of you to thank for that! Two hundred copies were downloaded, and at the end of the day, Play the Man was ranked #53 in the Women's Fiction genre of Amazon's free Kindle books, and also hit #81 in the Contemporary Fiction genre!
I couldn't be happier, and last night I was overcome with gratitude. I've always, always said that I have the best readers on Blogger, and you all came through for me in a big way.
Of course, now that you have a copy of Play the Man, I have to jump back into promotional mode and ask you to please review it on Amazon. Every writer loves feedback, and I have read every comment everyone's ever left for me and appreciated it—whether it was something short and sweet like "I really enjoyed this chapter, please update soon!" or the longer, epic comments left by some of my more ardent followers. But Amazon is different than Blogger, and reviews and ratings are what fuels consumers to decide whether or not to buy a product.
So I decided to make this a contest. If you rate my novel and leave a review on Amazon (it doesn't have to be anything gushing or long, just an honest review!), then you will receive something from me in return! And I'll even let you pick:
• a one-shot story featuring the hockey player of YOUR choice;
•a free, super-sized sneak peek of Shots on Net before it publishes
•a special dedication in Shots on Net; or
•a character named after you.
(Have something else in mind? Let me know, and we'll add it as a possibility!)
So, here are the rules for the contest:
1.) You must rate AND leave a review on Amazon for Play the Man between the time of this post on Blogger and 11:59PM, March 16, 2013.
2.) You must then e-mail me (JaymeeJacobs@hotmail.com) or tweet me (@JaymeeJacobs) to let me know that you have left a review and who you are, so that I have your contact information of every participant. (I will, of course, not divulge any contact information or spam it.)
3.) Once the contest is closed, I will hold a random drawing of all participants and pick one lottery winner. Then I will notify the winner, letting them choose their prize!
On your mark, get set, review!
