My publisher just revealed that she has special bookmarks to send me for my personal appearances. If someone buys a book at one of my personal appearances, I will give them a bookmark with a Special Code on it. Then if that person posts a review of my book on Amazon (it can be an honest review! Honestly!), he or she can redeem the bookmark for a FREE Oak Tree Press book by any of our authors!
This is a SWEET deal. I don't know of any other house offering such a deal right now.
It was a brilliant idea. It will be great at my signings.
Also, if someone buys a book somewhere else and I believe them (because I see the review up on Amazon, perhaps), then I will send them the Secret Code on the bookmark.
Win-win-win all around!
In other news, my release date may be set as early as late July! This is rocking my world! (Someone else slipped a deadline.) We could start the promotion tour in mid-July. We might have a tentative cover cobbled up in five days! This is really great. Stay tuned for more details.
