Purpose Pre-release Give Away(s)

I don’t think I can honestly say I’ve been quiet about the release of Purpose. I mean, I’ve been on three blogs, had them reposted on Facebook and tweeted them. I even remembered folks  a couple times when one was ending and a new one began.  To be honest, with all the ‘views’ I’ve gotten, I expected more people would sign up for something free. And it’s not just an eBook. I’m trying to give away a $15.00 gift certificate to Dreamspinner Press. That way if you already bought the book or if you don’t want the book, you can just take the money and buy whatever you like in Dreamspinner’s store. And you can enter multiple times. Each blog stop – and two are still open a third is coming soon – is giving a way an eBook, plus each time you comment on a blog hope your email is entered to win the gift card. You can get up to four chances to win that way. Here are links to those contests that are still open if you want to go sign up:

Anne Barwell – ends June 15

M.A. Church – ends June 16

Elizabeth Noble – Starts June 20 ends June 24.

But maybe I didn’t make it easy enough?  Each blog stop does require you answer a question.  So I’ll make this easier – well hopefully it’s easier.

I’m going to give away another eBook copy on my site on June 21, 2013 – the day Purpose is released.  To enter, starting today and running thought midnight on the 20th,  just 1) comment on this post- no email required, or send out a tweet with a link back to this page; or leave a comment on the Facebook post for this giveaway.  All who enter will also be entered to win the $15.00 Dreamspinner Press Gift Credit.  I think that makes it a bit easier to enter. 

Last – my dear friend Lily Velden is having a special pre-release giveaway for me as well.  Anyone who comments on her interview of me that begins June 18 and ends June 20 will be entered to win a $10.00 Dreamspinner Press Gift Credit. This giveaway is just for those who comment on Lily’s site so make sure you stop by and say hello. Here’s a link to her site.

Lily Velden – June 18-20.

If you win/buy the book – please let me know what you think.

    Now, I am going to look at all the other chances. Honestly haven’t seen them yet. I love contest. Thanks for them.

    • That’s great – the more who enter and the more times, the better. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by and I’ve added you to all the appropriates spots on my contest spread sheet.


  2. Susan says:

    I love DSP books, so please count me in! They have the best authors, such as you!

    • I agree DsP is a great company and they have great authors – I appreciate you considering me one of them, though I think I’m just happy to be in their company. 🙂

    Am so hanging out for the 21st – Andy Q, you have me wishing my life away!

  5. Cynthia says:

    Thanks for the giveaway. I shop at DSP a lot.

    • Excellent. they’re a great company and not just because they publish my work, they really are top notch people. Thanks for coming by and commenting and good luck.


  6. MikeL says:

    Excellent video…very well done. I’ve already read Purpose and heartily recommend it to all.

  7. K.C. says:

    Welllllll, I’ve already read Purpose and really enjoyed it, but the video was great. It really captured the images that I had in my head of Will and Ryan and the City. Great job!

    • KC, I agree I think the images were great, but I had nothing to do with that – Lex picked those out from the brief description I gave her. But i think she did an awesome job.

    Andy, Between you and Lily, I’m going to have to start making excuses for being anti-social just so I can enjoy some alone time with these books! Totally loved the video! I do have a question for you. Since becoming a father, has it changed your writing style or types of stories you’re writing in anyway?
    Best of luck on the release.

  9. Yvonne Hill says:

    Wow, your promotional video certainly gets the juices going. It has the feel of Rorschach (from watchmen), but in a much better body. lol. And much tastier encounters. I love a good mystery and your characters sound amazing.

    • Seriously? Rorschach? You picked up on it!!! Finally someone made the connection – with the better body of course. 😉 The difference is for most of his existence, Gar/Will didn’t let his conscience get involved. Rorschach acted based on his own set of morals.

      I think – based on your comments, you will get this book. 🙂
