Still with me? Here's the deal: I will send you a free, autographed copy of my new book in exchange for your promise to blog about it. No, you don't have to post a wildly complimentary review. All I'm asking is that you tell people about my book. You might choose to review it, or to post an interview with me, or you may do something else entirely. Hey, it's your blog.
Your post must appear on a weekday (because blog readership is way down on weekends) during the month of February. If you e-mail me when you post, I'll give you a shout-out from my blog and publicly thank you for helping to spread the word about my book.
Your post must include a link to my blog, my website, and my book's page at Amazon.com. You must mention my name and the book's title, publisher, and on-sale date. Do all of that in your own special way or just copy and paste the following (make sure you get all of the links working--if you need help on that, e-mail me):
A FAMILY FOREVER
by Brenda Coulter
From Steeple Hill Love Inspired
Look for it in stores after February 28
or order it right now from Amazon.com
Please forward this post to any of your blogging buds who may be interested. I've earmarked 30 books for this experiment, but I'll send out more copies if I'm in the mood and the requests come in early. (Note: Members of the Christian Fiction Blog Tours syndicate should not respond to this offer, but sign up with T. L. Hines to participate in the March 1-3 blog tour. Yes, I'm offering books to those folks, too.)
Ready to order your free book? Send an e-mail containing your full name and mailing address, a link to your blog, and your promise to follow all of these instructions to the best of your ability to: GimmeABook@BrendaCoulter.com
Putting an offer like this on the internet is sure to attract a few crazies, so here's a disclaimer: A Family Forever is a romance novel meant to appeal to individuals who espouse traditional Christian values. If I suspect your intent in requesting a book might be to ridicule those principles or make fun of romance novels, I'm not going to waste my time and money on you. That said, if you're a fairminded individual who is honestly curious about inspirational romance novels and would like to try one (and blog about it), please let me know.
