It was six weeks ago yesterday that I released Only You on Amazon. I didn't set any expectations or goals for my book. I just new I had a story that I wanted to tell and I hoped that people liked it. I never imagined that I'd reach readers in 11 countries or have an Amazon international best seller, or that after 6 weeks Only You would still be in the top 5 for gay fiction. These amazing things all happened because of my awesome readers and I want to thank you for your support.
My favorite part in this journey has been interacting with my readers. So, my friends and I have come up with an interactive contest that I think will be a lot of fun. This contest is open to everyone, whether your purchased my book or not. Four winners will receive a $25 Amazon gift card.
Let's have a little design-a-date fun for Sebastian and Adam. V-Day is coming up in a few weeks and Sebastian takes Adam on a romantic adventure for two, which turns out to be a misadventure. Contestants need to create the date, be sure to include location, activities, and a hilarious calamity that occurs. You don't have to write an essay. Just pretend you are pitching a short story idea to me and be as creative as you want with only two rules...1)you can't kill one of them and 2)no bringing a third party to their bedroom. Sebastian would never share!
You can send me your ideas here on my blog by commenting below, tweet them to me, post on Facebook, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you send an email please enter the contest in the subject line. You can also private message me if you're feeling shy.You can share with your friends and family by retweeting or sharing on Facebook. You can enter as many times as you like, but can only win once. I formed a committee to help me pick out my favorite four scenarios. Submissions must be in by 5 pm (EST) on 2/3/15. Winners will be announced next Wednesday, Feb. 4th, on my blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
I can't wait to give those gift cards away, so put on your thinking caps and submit your entries!
Now, onto the WIP Wednesday post. I've been so busy that I couldn't decide which character to profile next or choose a blurb to post. Instead, I decided to post pictures that represent the events happening in my current chapter that I've titled Boardwalks and Boardrooms.
Until next week...
