Once again, I wasn’t organized enough to get any actual “Advance Reader Copies” (ARCs) out ahead of time, so the best I can do is offer what I’m calling “First Reader Copies” (FRCs?) in the hopes that some of you will read fast and take the extra step of leaving reviews for me at Amazon and/or Goodreads. That will really help to get the ball rolling.
So, if you would like to be one of the “First Readers” of For Myself Alone (or would just like to win a book!), you’ll find all the ways to qualify below. Be sure to leave a SEPARATE entry in the comments section (find at bottom of this post) for each way you qualify (“I follow you on Twitter,” “I subscribe to your blog” etc.) so that you will have more than one chance to win. Winners will be determined by random drawing and announced here in a week. Contest closes April 9th.
You are eligible to win if you:
> subscribe to this blog (already, or you’re doing it now)
> follow me on Twitter
> tweet about this book or promotion on Twitter (with appropriate link)
> friend me on Facebook
> post about this book or promotion on Facebook (with appropriate link)
> if you have left a review for me (on The Darcys of Pemberley or Mr. Collins’s Last Supper) on Amazon or Goodreads (one entry for each, and it’s not too late to do it now!).
And unless it’s obvious, be sure to tell me what name you use in any of these places. My sincere thanks to everyone who has helped and supported me, and good luck with the contest!
Mrs. Collins’s pretty friend had moreover caught [Colonel Fitzwilliam’s] fancy very much. He now seated himself by her, and talked so agreeably of Kent and Hertfordshire, of traveling and staying at home, of new books and music, that Elizabeth had never been half so well entertained in that room before. (Pride and Prejudice, chapter 31)
