Next month, my first book (which I lovingly refer to as my “third child”) turns 2 years old. It’s hard for me to really believe that it’s actually been that long, mostly because these last two years have not at all gone the way I thought they would.
With “Musings of a 20-Something Mom” getting up there in book age (which I imagine to be a lot like dog years) I decided it was finally time to give it the attention it deserves. I may not have been wildly successful in my self-publishing venture, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still have fun with it, and it’s never too late for fun!
I have a crazy idea. A crazy insane and HUGE idea, and I need YOUR help- ALL of you- in order to accomplish it!
For Musings’ 2nd birthday, I want to get it on a Best-Sellers list. Before you sit back in your chair or trip over the sidewalk while saying “WHAAAAAAT?” bear with me. Depending on the month, this can be a simple thing to do! If it doesn’t make it on, that’s okay- but I’ve at least got to TRY, right? That’s where y’all come in!
I need everyone and their mother sharing the book sale with your FB friends, Twitter followers, Instagram lurkers- everyone! If you downloaded the book during the 3-free day, if you had Musings before, if you’re still in the middle of reading- share! Be as annoying as a car salesman; it IS just a dollar, after all (and the paperback is as low as I was allowed to take the price as well!)
Yes, I realize this may be asking a lot- the bugging of your friends (even if I think annoying people can be fun at times) and family members, so that’s why I have plentiful rewards for your help! Yay!
No matter WHAT happens, list or no list, I will be giving away a signed copy of “Musings of a 20-Something Mom”, some bumper stickers, and other goodies I can find and toss in a box. Maybe I’ll toss in some of my favorite candy, some Legos (muaahahahha. Okay, I wouldn’t do that) or just something I love that I need to spread the fandom of; ya never know what ya might get!
If we can get Musings to 2,000 sales, I’ll give away 2 boxes, 3,000- 3 boxes, all the way up to 5 boxes (what? I’m a starving artist!)
Every time you share, on Facebook or Twitter, or any place you can think of- it will count as an extra entry to win one of these goody-boxes!
MYSTERY! INTRIGUE! FUN!
I’m dying to make all 5 boxes, so that means y’all need to share like you’ve never shared before!
I truly believe that with the power in numbers and word of mouth- we really can rally together and get “Musings of a 20-Something Mom” on a best-sellers list! If you loved it, tell people why, if you don’t have it- get it! Let’s do this shit!
Below is a rafflecopter where you can record every share.
One last note: I am not looking to do this to make oodles of cash. It’s actually kind of laughable how little I make from each book when it’s only .99 per download. I am doing this because I love to write, and want more people to read it!
Best compliment you can give me is to tell me you hope your future kids turn out like mine. I mean, you're lying, but it's a nice compliment
