1. Post my book trailer on a blog that has existed for at least six months. Just run through the video, which you'll find at the bottom of this post, then grab the "embed" code you'll see at the end. Paste that into one of your regular blog posts.
2. Mention the book's title, my name, the on-sale date, and then provide a link to the book's page at Amazon and to my website. Do it your way or just copy-and-paste the following:A SEASON OF FORGIVENESS

3. That's it! Now just shoot an e-mail to GimmeABook@BrendaCoulter.com. Include your mailing address and a link to your post, and I'll pop your autographed book right in the mail. (No, you don't have to promise to review the book after you read it. But if you do end up posting a review, why not give me a shout?)
Please tell your blogging friends about this offer. I'm earmarking at least twenty books for this promo, but might decide to up that number at a later date. When I hit my limit, I will update this post and say so. (To tell you the truth, while I'm blessed with a lot of blogger friends, I'm not sure how many of them are comfortable posting videos. But it's easy, I promise. Give it a try!)
