Back in December I decided that during 2013 I wanted to try out one different promotion to share Diary of a Penguin-napper with new readers. In January, I experimented with changing the price on both Smashwords and Amazon.
Now, for February’s effort, I’m really pleased to announce that Penguin-napper is included in a new exciting Middle Grade e-book sampler called ‘Love Middle Grade Actually’. It looks like this:
To go into the draw to win a Kindle Fire, a giftcard or a copy of one of the many e-books included in the sampler, all you need to do is go to Amazon and download this e-book. It is absolutely free between February 7 and 11, 2013.
When you are reading it, you’ll find the secret phrase hidden in the book and all you need to do is to enter it into the contest link embedded in the e-book to be entered into the draw to win a Kindle Fire, a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a great middle grade e-book from one of 14 fantastic authors!
Competition opens 7 February 2013 and the winner will be announced on 14 February 2013. This e-book will be available to download for free for 5 days from the 7–11th of February and at 99c for the remaining days of the promotion. The winners will be drawn on 14 February 2013 and announced shortly thereafter.
Whether you like fantasy, adventure, mystery or humor, “Love Middle Grade Actually” gives you a taste of it all!
Apart from my book, there are the opening chapters form 13 other books for you to enjoy. This includes:
