Robin: Lady of Legend needs your help! My book has successfully made it to the quarter-finals of Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Award contest, and now to make it to the semi-finals, it needs your votes! Click on this link to download a FREE Excerpt from the book, and then (this is the most important part!) REVIEW that excerpt here: Review Excerpt. If you’ve already read and reviewed the whole book, that’s okay! Just copy your review into the Review Excerpt box, maybe tweaking it a little to pertain solely to the excerpt.
Thanks so much for your help! I’m so excited!
P.S. Amazon distorted the punctuation in the excerpt, so you might see weird symbols on occasion, but just ignore it — they’re that way for all the entries.
Thanks! I decided to follow your example and blogged about the vote/review: http://borneoexpatwriter.blogspot.com/2012/03/vote-for-resurrection-of-jonathan-brady.html
This was my post last week when I got the results: http://borneoexpatwriter.blogspot.com/2012/03/amazon-breakthrough-quarterfinals.html
Not clear about the voting aspect for this round, though I noticed quite a few excerpts were getting reviewed…
Good luck with your novel. Sounds like a great what-if idea with a built in market! Cool!
All the best,
I just posted a review. It’s a great story. I hope it make it to the finals and wins! I really enjoy the characters.
Thank you very much! I am glad you like it =)
