Pay It Forward Giveaway

book giveawayI have received a lot of inquiries about when Pieces Like Pottery will be available in print. We’re working on it. Hopefully it will be available by the end of March. (I almost said at the end of Q1. Guess who has a day job that isn’t being a writer?) Stay tuned. But for now…

We’re doing the Pay It Forward giveaway! There are 10 Books available to win.

To enter simply comment below, email me, tweet me, or Facebook message me. It’s that simple. I will be selecting 10 lucky winners throughout February.

But there’s a catch. In the spirit of the kindness of the characters in the book, if you win and enjoy the read, then you Pay It Forward.

If you hate it, tell everyone. Say the book is terrible. In fact, here’s a pre-made tweet for you if you hate it:

I’ve read better stories on the back of a Wheaties box. I want my money back from this free book.  

If you like it, however, you need to Pay It Forward.

As a winner, I will gift you a free copy of the book on Amazon. If you enjoy the book, it’s your turn. You must gift a copy of Pieces Like Pottery on Amazon to a friend of yours. (And review it of course.) Then if your friend likes it, they must do the same.

Why? Because books are so much more fun to read when they come recommended and as a gift, are they not? I dare you to disagree with that. If you do, you’re probably the kind of person that hates puppies and Christmas.

As my mother always said to us growing up, “Generosity breeds generosity.” Well, Mom, for this giveaway you are absolutely right. Everyone wins and everyone gets to feel good about themselves.

Spread the word! (Unless you’re greedy and want to make sure you win!)

    You can make that comment as bad as you want Dan, because no one will use it!

      You are very kind Zoro, but my book is not for everyone. I realize that. Actual feedback from someone who asked to review my book: “Your work is badly written. I am not being curt, but trying to be helpful. I have a double Masters in teaching writing.”

      That’s a quote. So some people hate it I guess! 🙂
