I know it's seven months until STILLWATER: A NOVEL is released, but I cannot contain my excitement! I've been thinking of what contests and giveaways I should have closer to the release and thought, "Why wait?" Plus, I had a pretty awesome idea for the swag to give away and I wanted to share. I have a friend who is a wonderful artist. Seriously. I'm in awe of her creativity. So, when I went to her with my idea, she said, "Yep. I can do that." And, it looks just as awesome as I expected!
Seriously, how cool is mug? The words all relate to the book, either character names, themes, or specific places. Why a coffee mug, you ask? Because Ellie Martin, the main female protagonist, owns The Book Bank, a combination bookstore and coffee shop. Hence, a hand-painted coffee mug.
How do you win this awesome coffee mug? Simple.
Going forward, my blog post will focus on writing instead of book news. The best way - the first way - to get news about the book, events, contests and exclusive content will be the newsletter. It'll be delivered right to your inbox. No blogs to follow, no social media accounts to check and hope my announcements will, against all odds, show up on your timeline. But, I'll also announce stuff on social media, so if that's your preferred way to get news, follow me on Facebook and Twitter.
Don't worry about me spamming you with newsletters. Marketing is important but it's also time-consuming. Every minute away from it is a minute I'm not writing or editing. So, I'll only send you newsletters when it's important, or can't keep it to myself news!
The contest will run through FRIDAY, March 6. Sign up! I'd love to share my publishing journey with you!
