THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE comes out in twenty days, and I'm holding a clockwork contest. The prize? A signed Advance Reader Copy of THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE and a signed copy of THE DOOMSDAY VAULT.
Here's how it works:
Amazon makes recommendations based on the number of reader reviews a book gets. When a book reaches 20 reader reviews, Amazon's computer starts recommending it. The content of the reviews doesn't matter--only that the book got reviews.
THE DOOMSDAY VAULT has ten reader reviews so far. Ten more will get Amazon to recommend it, just in time for THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE to come out. Here's where the contest comes in.
Go to Amazon and write a review for THE DOOMSDAY VAULT. The link is here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Doomsday-Vault-Clockwork-Empire/dp/045146429X/
(If you don't have an Amazon account, you'll need to create one, but it's free with an email address.) The review can be a simple, "I bought this book, and it's steampunk," or you can dissect endlessly. You can shred the book, if you like, as long as you post a review.
(Please note: I'm not pushing for good reviews. You won't hurt my feelings if you post a bad review or a short one. Do be honest in whatever you say. I definitely don't want to be accused of begging for good reviews. I stand by my work, in any case. Thanks!)
When you've posted a review, come back here and put a comment in letting me know which one is yours. If you've already already reviewed it (thank you!), put a comment here to say which earlier review is yours. Each reviewer will be entered in the contest.
Can we get ten reviews in ten days? If we do, I'll choose one of the reviewers at random to receive the prize above.
(And if the winner wants to post a review of THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE to start the cycle over again, well that would be awesome!)
Ten reviews in ten days with a prize at the end. What could be better?UPDATE #1
We have 14 reviews now. That's so great!UPDATE #2
In the mail today, I got my author copies of THE IMPOSSIBLE CUBE. So instead of an ARC, the contest winner will receive an actual copy (unless the winner would =prefer= an ARC). Perfect timing!
