I have finished writing all the main chapters of my book. Now I only need to write the introduction and conclusion, and then go through the stuff that my reviewers have been throwing at me, and then I’m done. At last!
Well, sort of…
I will be sending the first version of my full manuscript to my publisher on July 1st. And then the second part of my job as an author starts…
MARKETING AND PROMOTION!
Yes, despite having a great publisher, a lot of effort in marketing and promoting a book falls on the shoulders of the author. And that’s where I need you!
I am offering an Amazon gift certificate worth $250.34 for the person with the most valuable idea for the marketing and promotion of my book!
It doesn’t matter whether your idea is small or big, obvious or original, silly or smart. The only requirement is that I think:
“My God, yes… What a valuable idea. This might really help me to market and promote my book! Geez, why didn’t I think of this before? Now I have to pay 250 bucks. (And 34 cents.)”
Your idea may be about blogs, web sites, magazines, groups, partnerships, conferences, great articles that I should read, people I should talk to, places I should go to, or anything else that can have a great impact on the popularity of my book.
Here are the rules of the contest:

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask them.
I am looking forward to your contributions!
