We’re starting a new pile of awesome, and I have to say, Jane is the WordPress mastermind. We’ve created a new site just for the Save the Contemporary campaign. We’ll be announcing future contests both here and at Dear Author and steering interested folks who like free books and awesome prizes over to the new site.
This month? Smooth Talking Stranger, by Lisa Kleypas. Jane and I both really enjoyed this book. I finished reading it and literally had to go lie down and sniffle. My eyes were stinging, my smile was wobbly, and I had Good Book Sniffles.
As usual, we want to spread the word about this book, and about contemporary romance. Head on over to the Save the Contemporary site, and forward the announcement of the Lisa Kleypas book using the “Email this Page” link at the top, or spread the word via Twitter using the hashtag #stc – making sure to alert either jane (@jane_l) or me (@smartbitches). Or, you can write about the campaign, link to the site, and email us a link at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every time you forward, email, tweet or blog about it and notify us that you’ve done so, you’re entered for a chance to win one of 20 copies of the book, courtesy of St. Martin’s. We’ll announce the winners in 24 hours.
Then, a week from now, we’ll pick one random entry and give away a grand prize package of 20 books from St. Martin’s backlist.
We’ve also set up a recommendation page, so if you’ve read a contemporary romance you adored, please let us know.
And, last but not least, from now until April 6, Borders is offering 30% off all pre-orders, so if you’re thinking of buying it, you’ve got 30% more (or less) incentive to do so.
Happy reading, and spread the word: Save the Contemporary!
