Today’s Wednesday’s Guest is Jay Hartman, one of the partners at Untreed Reads, a terrific ebook publisher. The folks over there came up with this idea for something fun to do during the bleary days of January. I am pleased to have several of my titles among the hundreds of books offered by Untreed Reads. They all qualify for this special.
Let’s all have a glass of lemonade and pretend it’s summer. 🙂
January is typically the month where people set all types of goals and challenges for themselves. One type of very popular challenge is to read a certain number of books over the course of the year.
We think reading is pretty essential to a happy life, and challenging yourself to read more over the course of a year will keep your brain as healthy as giving up chocolate cake or soft drinks. So we want to make it even easier to help you meet that goal.
We’ve setup The 2014 Untreed Reads Ebook Challenge to get everyone’s brains all fired up. If you’d like to participate, all you need to do is the following:
1. Send your name and email address to 2014Challenge@untreedreads.com . If you’re participating in another reading challenge on the Internet, be sure to let us know that too. We won’t EVER share your info with anyone else, but we’ll add you to our New Releases newsletter so you can see the great new books coming down the pike…plus get even more coupons!
2. Each month we’ll send you a coupon good for a free download from our store (http://store.untreedreads.com). You can choose any title up to $5.99 and in any format you prefer: EPUB, PDF or Kindle.
3. Read the book and leave a review in our store and as many other places you can, such as Amazon and Goodreads. Please leave an honest review! You’ll also need to include in your review that you received a free copy of the book in exchange for a review. The government requires that. Darn red tape!
Don’t break your resolution to stop procrastinating! We’re only accepting sign-ups through January 31st, so be sure to take advantage of this great opportunity!
On another note, I will be out of town until next week, so I am taking a break from blogging. See everyone next week.For a little bit of fun for your Wednesday check out the nonsense Slim Randles shared at The Blood Red Pencil.
I also want to mention that my mystery, Boxes For Beds, is on a special countdown sale at Amazon through Saturday. If you missed out on getting a copy when it was offered free, this is your chance to get it for only $1.99. After that, the price goes back to $3.99. If you don’t have a Kindle reader, you can get Kindle Apps for all other electronic devices. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about the story, “Excellent characterization and a good plot.”
Finally, here are a couple of jokes I stole… er.. borrowed from my friend LD Masterson.
The eighth-graders will be presenting Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the Church basement Friday at 7 PM. The congregation is invited to attend this tragedy.
This evening at 7 PM there will be a hymn sing in the park across from the Church. Bring a blanket and come prepared to sin.
