If you are asking, Why should I participate? Please. Read on.
I have Four reasons (Spoiler: The fourth one is PRIZES)
1 – For your own pleasure. I think you’ll love THE OPPOSITE OF EVERYONE. It is the suspenseful tale of a hard-edged Atlanta lawyer who grew up close to homeless in the wilds of Alabama. She gets a cryptic note from her estranged mother that rewrites her past, shatters her present, and completely changes her future. Beloveds, I am ungodly proud of it, and the early reviews are stellar Booklist calls it “a wholly absorbing story with vivid characters,” and Kirkus gave it a starred review. You can learn more about the book HERE.
2 – For my pleasure. You will be actively supporting my career in the most effective way possible. Your sale will register the week of the book’s release, with a bookstore who reports sales to all major bestseller lists. I can’t TELL you how key this is. If you want to allow me the privilege of continuing to write novels because you enjoy them because you are a glorious human being of taste and substance, well…This is how you do it.
3 – For the pleasure of an awesome store. This is one of those special places in the nation where new voices get hand-sold and find readerships. The Indies gave me my career. Every aspiring writer and every adventurous reader on the planet needs to make sure they stay open and thriving.
4 — There will be PRIZES. (Told you!) This time, I am doing it Kickstarter style, with levels that unlock as we go. At every level, a new prize is added, and the numbers of previously unlocked prizes rise, so your odds of winning do not go down as you FB share or tweet or tell others about the VBT.
Actually, your odds go up, and entries are based per book, not per order. 3 copies = 3 entries.
