It’s a new “reader-powered” publishing venture by Amazon, which means readers help decide if a book gets published.
By nomination. And the great thing is that if you nominate a book and Amazon publishes it, you’ll get a free Kindle copy!
I have a couple of friends who both have a campaign page, and they could both use your help getting published.
You get the pleasure of knowing you helped an author’s dream come true. You also get a free book if that book is published.
Today I’m highlighting one of my friend’s books.
Linda Cassidy-Lewis is an exceptional writer. Unfortunately she is an exceptional writer with very limited financial resources and a minuscule budget for marketing.
When books are chosen for publication by Kindle Scout, the author receives a $1500 advance AND a promotional boost from Amazon. This Kindle Scout campaign means a lot to her, so I’m sure you can imagine how excited she is about it.
At the Kindle Scout site, She has a campaign page for 30 days, highlighting her book High Tea & Flip Flops. It’s a romantic comedy, and after reading the first chapters, I found it hilariously witty and clever. Displayed on the nomination page is the cover image, a short “blurb” (description), an excerpt, her bio, and a brief Q&A. Also you’ll see that all-important Nominate Me button. If you like what you see, please click the blue NOMINATE ME button.
I hope you’ll support her campaign! Don’t wait to nominate High Tea & Flip Flops. Please help it hit the Hot & Trending list and stay there! Here’s how you can help:
Step One: please go to Linda’s campaign page and click the blue “nominate me” button.
Step Two: please spread the word to all your friends who might like to see High Tea & Flip Flops published.
Step Three: please watch for announcements and reminders on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus and share them with your followers and friends.
I’ve added the blurb below for High Tea & Flip Flops, head over to the campaign page and read the first couple of chapters. It’s going to be an incredible read! Also, watch next week when I post another Kindle Scout book. Katie Mettner has a great guest post planned! I’ll have it up on Friday!
Chelsea Cole is one paycheck from losing her apartment, which would really suck now that a mysterious Brit, Jeremy Pearce, is her neighbor. Not her usual SoCal surfer type, he’s all sexy long hair, poet shirts, and secrets. He’s a puzzle she’s determined to solve—if she can stop humiliating herself at their every encounter. Imagine Chelsea’s surprise when he offers her a job. Her money woes behind her, she’s ready for romance. But can mixing business with pleasure end in happily ever after?
Jalal Vaziri has looks, money, women–and a habit of running from reality. Convinced he’s only running from a father who hates him, a career mistake, and endless partying, he abandons Wall Street and reinvents himself as a poet in a California beach house. A fresh start is all he needs. When Meredith, an intriguing older woman enters his life, he believes all his dreams are coming true. But too soon those dreams dissolve into nightmare. Jalal flees again. He’s nearing the point of no return when young and feisty Renee blocks his retreat and challenges him to finally face the truth about what he’s trying to outrun.
In this contemporary tale of love, loss, and redemption, a desperate man discovers his salvation lies in an unlikely source.
When Renee Marshall locked the door on her dark past and married Jalal Vaziri, she hoped for a quiet life in a California coastal town. Now, with a sexy, adoring, wealthy husband, one beautiful child and another on the way, she dares to believe happily ever after could be her future. But doors don’t always stay locked. As the stress of living in Jalal’s high-society world increases, the traumas of Renee’s past begin to poison the present and threaten to destroy everything she treasures.
Is it her imagination or is Jalal keeping a secret that will end their marriage and rip her children from her life? And could it involve Diane, the woman who reminds Renee too much of Jalal’s beloved first wife?
