Fiends, Romanians, country-bumpkins…that doesn’t seem right.
Readers! Lend me your… support.
I can’t remember the last time I left my writer’s desk. Plates of food just turn up. I clear them. They disappear. There’s a bucket under the desk for you know what. It gets emptied. Don’t ask me who by. I smell and I need a shave. These are busy, busy days in my writing life. And now I have something else to attend to.
Consider this a cry for help, a call to arms. I’m seeking assistance from my lovely readers. (I’ll even accept it from the horrible ones. No names – Betsy.)
I’ve enrolled Acer #4 in a fairly new Amazon initiative. It’s called Kindle Scout.
Here’s a link to see what it’s all about. Click on ‘How it works’. Pleeeeeeease look.
Here is my submission page. Pleeeeeeeeease look.
I truly believe it would be a great boost to me the writer and to the first three of the Acer Sansom novels if my campaign was successful. (Does anyone who reads this blog really want me to have to go back to teaching little children? Would you want that on your consciences? I’m thinking of them for a change, not me. No one wants someone who took a year’s sabbatical to follow a dream and who failed to end up in a room with thirty screaming five-year-olds. That’s never going to end well. Just think about what could happen. You could be legal accessories to something terrible if you don’t help me.)
Before you all rush off to share this link and re-blog and spread the word. I have one word to say. STOP! PLEASE, DON’T SHARE THIS BLOG-POST ANYWHERE. That’s eight words.
Why don’t I want it shared? Am I insane?
Apparently, the best thing to do when running a Kindle Scout campaign is to spread out any votes you can hope to count on from readers, friends, family etc. If everyone votes on day one then the book might become ‘Hot’ for a day and then end up as frozen as a snowman’s todger by the end of thirty days. (I wonder how many votes that simile just cost me.) It’s up to me to try to find a way to keep my submission on the boil so to speak. I will be sharing on Facebook and Twitter etc. But later. NOT NOW! This campaign lasts for thirty days. I thought I would make my blog followers my first port of call. (Feeling privileged or disgracefully used?)
OK. All that said, and I hope understood, I want to say this in all seriousness. I’m only asking you to look at my submission. If it’s something you would like to support please do so. If you don’t like what you read who will know if you vote for someone else? (God will know, that’s who. And He and I are in regular contact. JOKE!) You get three votes by the way.
What’s in it for you? Whoever you vote for you’ll know you’re helping them to achieve a dream. And if they get taken on by Amazon, if you voted for their book, you get a free ebook of it when it gets published. Good, eh?
I said please don’t share this blog-post but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t want all of you who will back me to tell everyone you know who has an Amazon account to get stuck in. Just whisper it or text it or stop people in the street or make a quick call to a family member. It’s not a secret!
Now don’t waste another moment. Follow the link above and vote for ME!!!!! (or whoever.)
Do it for the children or be prepared to live with the consequences, maybe while rotting in jail.
