Contest News: One Week

8 May

It’s been one week since my young-adult novel, Minutes Before Sunset released, and it’s been an absolute adventure so far! Reviews are already popping up, and I’m happy to say I have a 4.8 star rating on Goodreads and 4.2 star rating on Amazon.

Two reviews from Amazon:

I also received a review from upcoming author, Amber Skye Forbes. Read it here.

Back when I was self-publishing Minutes Before Sunset, I held a cover competition, because I love for my readers to be involved as much as possible with my pieces. In fact, the winning cover impressed my publisher so much, Autumn Fog Photography will be designing the cover for book 2 (releasing this Fall/Winter.) I’m excited, now that I have a publisher, and they’ve continued working with me, so I can keep giving back. So I have a new contest!

The paperback is in the final process, and below, you will see two book jackets. The only difference between the two is the back.

One has a longer description, the other has a shorter one (with two author reviews), but you also have the ability to vote for one yet created: one in-between (a description the size of one character and the reviews.)

Comment about which one you like, and one reader will win a free paperback while five others will win a free e-book version! All I ask is to comment (vote) and clarify which one (or both) you’d like to be qualified for. If you’ve already bought the e-book, you’re welcome to join the paperback competition, but please don’t join the e-book if you already have one.

Thank you for understanding and helping my publisher decide which jacket is the best to use for you all!

Don’t forget that you can also vote for a third type (medium-length description + author reviews) 

As an extra, here’s the number one quote on Goodreads page:

“One moment of true happiness was worth all the moments of pain. (Jessica)”

P.S. Looking forward to give back! And posting again this Friday about my poetry reading at the University of Kansas, today at 11 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.
