Today is a special day!
Today is the day that we celebrate Bestseller for a Day for “30 pieces of Silver” by Carolyn McCray.
To explain what’s going on today I’ve invited Carolyn over to explain everything to you! Here she is:
February 28 marks what could potentially be a historic day in publishing history. Why, you ask? Just a little (ok, huge!) promotion created by the Indie Book Collective called Bestseller For A day where we promote one book, one author, one day to propel them onto the Amazon Top 100 List and with your help we can do it!
And guess what? It’s MY day! This Monday, February 28, I’m mounting a pretty major challenge to the NYT Bestselling titles with my controversial historical thriller (a la Brown’s DaVinci Code) 30 Pieces of Silver. I’m thrilled to have already pierced the 1,000 Top Paid Kindle Lists, ranking as high as #3 in the sub-genre of “Men’s Adventures” but I’ve set my sights even higher. I can make this happen with YOUR help!! (and wonderful sponsors like Sugarbeat’s Books!)
How, you ask? Download “30 Pieces of Silver” for just 99 cents (yep, that’s IT) and you get the satisfaction of helping indie authors like myself scale the big boy charts as well as an amazing 5/5 star historical thriller to read and share!
I also need your help in spreading the word with retweets, blogs visits, shout-outs on your blog, Facebook page, Twitter, and anywhere else you can!
What else? To show my appreciation to you, my wonderful readers, I’m giving away a free Kindle! To enter the drawing, simply go to the “30 Pieces of Silver” Amazon.com page and download the eBook for just 99 cents. Then, head over to the Bestsellerforaday.com website to apply for your 5 entries into the Free Kindle giveaway!
Is that it? Nope, there’s more! How about a Bonus Buy just for participating? #awesome To help celebrate “30 Pieces of Silver’s” big day, I’m also offering Cristyn West’s mystery Plain Jane as a Bonus Buy! Yep. If you purchase Plain Jane on the same day as “30 Pieces of Silver” I will rebate the entire purchase price of Plain Jane (99 cents also) through BestSellerforaday.com! All this information can be found on the Bestsellerforaday.com website.
About me: I cofounded the The Indie Book Collective in September, 2010 with fellow authors Rachel Thompson (A Walk In The Snark) and Amber Scott (Play Fling and Love Lust) with the mission of teaching writers to harness the power of social media to market their work. The response has been incredible and swift. With an interactive stream of 5,000 Twitter followers, Facebook and Goodreads groups, a Grou.ps interactive forum, free workshops, a weekly blog talk radio show, twice-weekly blog postings, and now this promotion, the IBC is paving the way for indie authors to make themselves heard! The other major promotion the IBC started in 2011 is Blog Tour de Force, where we promote 12 authors, 12 blogs, over 6 days; with over 40 reviewers on board so far. The theme for the April 18-25th Tour is “Cage Match,” pitting the two authors in a competition for readers’ interest and comments, and readers for prizes, gift baskets, and the chance to win a free Kindle. Let the games begin!
I’d like to thank Carolyn for joining us and giving such a great explanation of Bestseller for a Day. Help us push Carolyn’s book up the ranks on Amazon. Either use one of the links above or click on the picture below.
