Act Now! Pieces Like Pottery Giveaway!


Well, I have heard your pleas my friends!

“When are you going to do another giveaway?” you said.

“How can I win your book?” you said.

“Do I have to buy your book or can I just get an illegal copy from somewhere and save the money while you and your kids starve?” you said.

Your wish is my command! Two times!

Pieces Like Pottery is available for a limited time in not one, but two separate giveaways.



Wait, you mean the book in this famous stack of authors?!?



Yes! That’s the one!


Wow! You mean the book that The San Francisco Globe raved about?!

Yes, that very same book!


Hold on. You’re telling me, I could win a copy of the book that has reached Amazon Bestseller status two different times in the year since it was published?!

Holiday Giveaway- Tea Gift Basket


I usually don’t allow for posts that are strictly marketing on Nothing Any Good, unless the author or publisher are willing to pay a nominal advertising fee to help with hosting and the other fees that it takes to keep the site running. I don’t want all of you to find yourselves inundated with boring marketing fluff. (And believe me, it’s boring. Most book marketing is the same old drivel. I’m sorry to say it, but it’s true.) If an author isn’t willing to invest in offer advice and pointers to my readers, then they need to be willing to invest in supporting the upkeep of the site.

The point of the site is to offer support and guidance to those slogging away as an Indie Author. I always encourage authors to provide unique and fresh articles on the experience they have to share. I realize how hard it is to get your name and your book out there, and I have supported a lot of authors in their effort to find readers, both on this site and elsewhere.

Every now and then, however, someone’s marketing efforts are clever enough to pique my interest. Gilian Baker’s efforts for her debut novel in her Jade Blackwell cozy mystery series did just that.

Ms. Baker is giving away a holiday tea basket in anticipation of her cozy mystery novel, Blogging is Murder, which comes out Feb 19. All you have to do to enter to win the tea gift basket is follow Gilian Baker on Amazon. Here is the giveaway entry link:

Go for it! Who doesn’t like a nice little tea gift basket over the holidays!?

If any of you are interested in joining the beta-reader group for Blogging is Murder, you can do so for an advanced copy of the book and the prospect of MORE giveaway prizes in the future. You can join the beta-reader group on Ms. Baker’s Facebook page.

Good luck!

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!)
