I mentioned a while back that for the release of Soul Enslaved, I’m not planning to do a major blog tour. This time, I’ve got something else in mind. Something I hope will be a whole lotta fun!!
I WILL be doing a book blast with a rafflecopter giveaway and I’d LOVE your help spreading the word for a couple reasons:
- Soul Enslaved will be 99 cents for a VERY VERY limited time. I mean like … just a couple of days, limited.
BUT! That brings me to reason #2:
- I’m donating a percent of sales for Soul Enslaved to TWO charities that help neglected or abused kids stay off the streets of Detroit and the metro area.
I’ll tell you more about this in a future post. But the more you help me spread the word, the greater the donation I can make!
In addition to the book blast …
When I first wrote Soul Avenged, aside from friends and family who'd read the book, I didn't have much of a following at all. No one knew the Sons of Wrath and I found that, not only was I limited to a handful of PNR blogs to help me get the book out there, but of those, only a few were willing to read a book as thick as Soul Avenged. Oh man, I thought I'd screwed up royally by writing such a long story. But then, something REALLY unexpected happened. Bloggers started signing up to join the tour. Even though they had NO IDEA who I was as an author or who my characters were, they took a chance and read the book.
Then Soul Resurrected was written and more bloggers joined the tour. Through (and including) them, I met some pretty amazing readers.
All of you have been instrumental in helping me get my books out there. You take the time to read my books, post your reviews, shout about my crazy stories – you took a chance on me and I want to give back.
So I’m going to run a little contest during the book blast …
Every writer dreams of seeing a book hit the big screen. I’ve always wondered how others see my characters. Therefore, I’m asking bloggers to cast the Sons of Wrath and I’m going to have YOU vote for the best collection of sexy mancandy!
The winning blog will get $50 Amazon gift card! Readers get to enter the rafflecopter for a chance to win some awesome prizes!
Win win win!
The blogger picks are coming in and I L.O.V.E. the sexy faces they’re matching with each of these guys.
Damn they’re HAWT. Think it's time to update my Eye Candy Pinterest board.
If you know of a blogger who loves PNR and might wanna get in on this, please don’t hesitate to share this post!
If you ARE a blogger and wanna get in on this, email me keri (at) kerilake.com.
In the meantime, I’ve been getting feedback from betas for Soul Enslaved and it’s been humbling. I’ve said before, I have good days and bad days when it comes to my writing. The responses have definitely kept me in a very positive and upbeat state of mind and I cannot wait to share this story with you!
Here are just a few of the beta comments:
"Your storytelling wraps me up & I forget to THINK beyond enjoyment."
“Do you have any idea how fucking awesome you are?”
“Good Gawd, woman! Done. And...and...and...Argh! What have you done to me? Again.”
“You are messing with my mind in all the best ways.”
“I know this book will be tidied up and I'm a bit sad to hear that because I enjoyed so many scenes (particularly in the latter quarter of the book).”
I’ll be giving another update soon so stay tuned!!
