The Contest Part 3

Hooray!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to all the terrific supporters who voted for me, One Night in Boston ended up winning Ciar Cullen's Best Ebook of the Summer contest!!

I had fun recruiting votes, and it was a good experience for me to stretch mysef promo-wise. I'm proud I held my own as a newbie author, even though some people grumbled a bit about whether it was more of a popularity contest than a merit-based contest. You can read what I think about that, here. Now the only thing I have to worry about is Ciar's review of the book. I hope she likes it. I hope she doesn't tear it apart. I hope..hmm...I hope this isn't a "be careful what you wish for" type of thing.

Well, they say any promotion is good promotion, right? Let's hope so!

It's supposed to be a gorgeous, summer-like weekend here, so lots on the agenda for outside work. The biggest is helping hubby start hanging the vinyl siding on our newly built garage. Should be an adventure...

Congrats Allie!!!!So happy for you.
And don't listen to the naysayers. Its not popularity - its networking which is an important part of the publishing industry. Liz

Yes, any promotion is good promotion. And even bad reviews (not that you'll get one) are good for sales, etc. I know people who will only watch movies that critics pan.
