Cameras Ready?! The best way to create buzz about a book release is to get readers involved. I have a few challenges lined up, and the first is simple. Take pictures for me! Snap a picture of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox when it arrives. Prop it up in your favorite reading spot. Snag a book-sniffing selfie. Showcase it with other blue books … with props from the story … with your mug of tea … with your pets … with your plushies … with character doodles … with a bowl of ramen. Get creative. Be enthusiastic. Impress me. Be elegant or silly. Make me smile. Because there will be fabulous prizes.
- Send me a link to your #bookstagram or blog post, pins or pic-spam.
- Tweet your pics using @ForthWrites, and I’ll retweet.
- Email me your snapshots or leave them here in comments.
If you’re taking part, I’m going to assume you’re okay with my re-posting your pictures here on the blog, on Twitter, on Goodreads, etc. And yes, if you can find creative ways to show off your digital edition, I’ll count those pictures, too.
Fabulous Prizes. Everyone who participates (and lets me know w/ a comment or email and link) will be entered into a drawing. Three people will win a set of twinkle pens. The grand prize will be a signed copy of Tsumiko and the Enslaved Fox.
I have Asian markets in my part of the US.
These twinkle pens NEEDED to be shared!
One photo is enough to put your name in the drawing, but it’s okay to go above and beyond. It won’t increase your chances of winning (one entry per individual), but I do find little ways to show my appreciation. And believe me, I’m grateful. ::glomp::
Deadline to Enter. I’m giving everyone a month. Keep staging photos and snapping pictures and being fabulous all the way through Thursday, March 22, 2018. On the 23rd, I’ll do a drawing and announce our winners!
**EDIT** Due to circumstances beyond my control, which has caused a disheartening delay in the distribution of print editions, I am extending the deadline by yet another month. You now have through Tuesday, May 22, 2018 to take part. The drawing for winners will take place on the 23rd of May.
More challenges & contests to come!
