So in attempts at drumming up attention, and interest in Damaged, I decided to do a probably slightly crazy Giveaway.
First I asked on my Author Page on Facebook those who are willing to Read and Review the e-book copy of a book in order to win a paperback, I was astounded by the amount of people that were all for it. *so insert evil mastermind planning*
I decided when the page hit 800 likes (I was seriously like 10 away) that we would do the signed paperback copy. But I am also offering it as there could be one international winner as well – if you have never shipped international, its a lot of money – A LOT. I have looked it up before as I have a friend over seas that I wanted to send her stuff. So it ain’t cheap. And while its a grand thought that authors don’t have to pay for the paperbacks they get – I am going to let you in on a little secret, come closer, *whispers* we do.
Anyways. So because of this giveaway, I decided to drop the price of Damaged down a bit, a dollar. I know what you are thinking, well that isn’t very much. Well I also had the whole issue with Amazon not putting my book up its original price until about two weeks after I wanted it, so there is that. And really I get that e-books are supposed to be more inexpensive, and trust me when I see an e-book over 5.99 I am going like this
But this is my reasoning for Damaged being “on sale” for 1.99 – its only 2 dollars, in most cases that is cheaper than the coffee some people *cough* me *cough* buy. Seriously fancy coffee ain’t cheap. And it takes – and no offense to any brista or Tim Horton’s employee out there, it takes them what? 3 minutes – AT MOST to make? I realize there is more that goes into it, its the cost of the milk, the actual coffee, the machines that are used, etc, etc, etc, BUT they are also selling probably over 10,000 a day. A DAY. I am lucky to sell over one book a day. Yeah….so what takes me roughly 5 months to write, 3 months to edit (mine, betas, and my awesome editors), not to mention the $$$ i have to put into the beautiful cover, the beautiful formatting, and everything after, I think (and i am not trying to sound like an ass right now) I think that it isn’t unreasonable to call taking a whole dollar off as a sale.
So please don’t hate me
I understand that readers such as you and I, buy books on a daily basis, a lot of times bi-daily basis, if not more.
So with all that said here are the rules:
Kimberly Hart – generously offered a SIGNED PAPERBACK AS WELL ^.^ and trust me you wanna try for this bad boy as well, that doesn’t mean you need to buy her book and review it as well, if you choose to do so, AWESOME, its a beautiful collection of poetry that I firmly believe it is for the readers of today, its for us, and she really invokes more emotion in one poem them some people can in four chapters. You will feel the feels. I promise
So really all that has to be done is give her page some love here: Kimberly Hart
Now for the big rules: You can BUY Damaged for 1.99 and send me your order number
and for separate points you can REVIEW Damaged, and link me the links to your reviews, if you want to post it on goodreads, or amazon, or nook, or booklikes, or your blog only, that is what you can do, or if you want to do all or some excellent ^.^
Now with all this said and done, I will be checking entries, and order numbers, why you ask? Because while I don’t think its ever been a problem for any of my giveaways, I know people sometimes decide to cheat. And that isn’t fair to the people who are willing to do all this for me. And really this is MY HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to the people who are so willing to do it.
I will note: If you have already bought Damaged, or you have received a copy from me either via giveaways, read for reviews, etc, you are still allowed to enter.
So this is all being done in a rafflecopter <— click ^.^
I am having this Giveaway run for a month – I hope that is enough time for most readers, and I truly hope that people are interested in helping this little author out ❤
AND this is the BIG BIG BIG BIG part of the RULES: I do NOT want you to change your Review in anyway thinking it will sway me. I want HONEST REVIEWS. Also I am not asking for a Becca-style review, if you know what I mean from my reviews on my other blog, The Violet Hour, seriously if you could write 1-4 sentences helps. Thank you all so very much….
