Giveaway and guest post

Hello everyone!  How are you?  I'm awesome and because of that, I want to share the love with all of you.  Who doesn't need some love? 

1.  I have discovered a little gem called Novel Publicity.  Every Friday is Karma Friday, in which, authors, like many of us, pay it forward by liking each other on Facebook and Twitter.  The idea is that you never know who you will connect with and who might help you out, or be helped by you in the future.  I've participated the past two Fridays and have already discovered some awesome writers. 

2.  Inspired by the karma, by the platform building campaign by Random Acts of Publicity, I decided to do a little giveaway of my own if anyone is interested in playing along.  I recently created a YA paranormal short story for Halloween and put it on Amazon for fun.  The feedback I've been receiving is really encouraging so I thought I'd follow up with a giveaway.  If you're willing to read "Kiss of Death" and leave a review on Amazon you can comment here and leave your email address for a chance to win an Amazon gift card.  If I get 5 reviews, the gift card will be $5.  If I get 10 reviews, $10.  I can't imagine more than 10 people will play along but we'll cross that bridge if we get to it. 
An offshoot of that which doesn't directly benefit me, I'd love to start an Indie Book Discussion group here or on Facebook so that all the small press, Indie books, ebook authors among us can generate discussion and reviews.  Stay tuned as I work out logistics on that.  Any interest?

3.  Today I'm the guest blogger on author, Chris Eboch's blog.  I wrote about revising...which I'm off to continue doing now.  Unfortunately, this novel won't revise itself and I don't want to be stuck in the revising stage this time next year.  Onward! 


  1. Done. Reviewed. Way to go, Sarah!

  2. That's awesome, Kristi! Thank you!!! Only 2 more reviews needed to get to the giveaway. Will we make it??

  3. Paying it forward is always good. LOVE your giveaway idea! Given my current overscheduledness, I think I better ask how long The Kiss of Death is before I commit to reading and reviewing? :)

    P.S. Is it possible to follow your blog via email? That's the only surefire way I can keep up with blogs I like!

  4. Thanks Susanna. Kiss of Death is a short story 4500 words, so hopefully manageable for a busy schedule. :)
    I'll have to look into following by email. It should be an option, let me see what I can do. Thanks for commenting!

  5. Only need one more review to start the giveaway. Who's willing to do it?

  6. Sarah - can you tell me how you put your book on Kindle? I know someone who would like to try it. The ms is complete, but now what? Thanks so much!
