Beware geeks bearing gifts, the popular saying goes. But not when those gifts are fancy electronics gadgets, an expensive one of which you may win should you decide to continue reading this article and follow its instructions. As it happens, I’m running a contest on my main site, Dedoimedo.com. The rules are simple, read my books, write reviews and sign up for a lottery. At the end of it, there’s gonna be a draw, and the winner gets something fancy, like a tablet, a smartphone, a laptop, or a similar. Savvy?
My benevolence knows no bounds. Next week, both the first and the second book in my epic fantasy series, The Lost Words, will be free for download from Amazon, for two days each. Respectively, the Kindle edition of The Betrayed will be available on Mar 25-26, from midnight, Pacific Time, and The Broken will be available on Mar 27-28. In layman’s terms, free grub Tuesday to Friday.
There we go, book three is underway! I have contacted my publisher, and now we’re going to start the editing process, with all its subtle and time-consuming little details, including going through all of the manuscript and fixing errors and whatnot, designing the cover and the rest.
Let us announce the happy winner of this contest. All in all, more than forty people pledged, or had their names pledged to the contest, including the participants of the original my-best-software and the subsequent limerick contests. However, only 22 of them wrote their reviews in time, before the official expiry date of Year 2013. We even had one exception, of a contestant who could not purchase the book on Amazon due to regional restrictions and whatnot, but they got their book by postal mail and subsequently wrote their opinion on Goodreads.
The holiday season is upon us. This means gifts. Since you ain’t giving me any love, I’m gonna give you love back instead. Ergo, ispo facto, hence, to wit, hereforth, thusly, you get both my first and second book in The Lost Words epic fantasy series, free, for no less than four days!
Some of you may remember my Ubuntu smartphone contest. It goes as follows. You read my books, either The Betrayed or The Broken or both, and you write a review, and then you become eligible for participation in the Ubuntu smartphone contest, which runs till the end of this calendar year.
