Letters To The Editor

A Creative Idea For A Contest Involving Your Book's Readers!

Hi Ang,

Here is an idea to pass along to my fellow BookLocker and Abuzz Press authors:

I held a drawing at my most recent book signing and the winner will get a minor character and a cameo appearance in the next Reporter novel in the series. The winner told me, "Make me young, thin, and pretty...and give me big boobs." Heh. Furthermore, as a special bonus I also had the teaser to Book 2 on hand for attendees to read as a thank you for their attendance and loyalty.

Cheers and hugs!
