Goodreads and More

I recently discovered and set up my author page there. I’m not sure where I’ve been the past few years, but this is an excellent website to find, review, and recommend books to fellow readers.

Because it will be December (tomorrow!) and I wanted to test out the cool features of Goodreads, I am having another contest on their website. It will start tomorrow (Dec. 1) and run through Dec. 20th.  This time, the prize is an autographed copy of “Mind Trace!” So, if you didn’t win last time, please enter again for another opportunity, and tell your friends!

You can enter to win here:

Good luck!

Contest Ended

The contest is officially over! Check back tonight or tomorrow to see the winner!

**EDIT: The winner has been chosen!

There were a total of 7 entries (including one that got lost on another post), and through random selection, Natalie Domanick was chosen as the winner!

Congratulations Natalie Domanick! Please send me a message through the Mind Trace page on Facebook with the address you would like the book to be shipped to.  Or, if you’d rather have the Kindle edition, please send me your email address.

**Note: If you do not respond in 72 hours, I will randomly select another winner! So please respond quickly!

Thanks to everyone who participated, and while I would have preferred a larger turnout, there’s always next time! Check back on the blog for more contests and updates!

Book Giveaway!

In order to get the word out there and generate some excitement, I decided to have a little contest.  The winner will receive a free copy of Mind Trace!

The rules are simple.  Leave a comment on this post if you would like to be entered in the contest. I will select a random winner after the contest ends, and post the winner here, on my webpage. So check back on 11-28-2012 to see if you won!

Good luck!

Some things to note:  If you are chosen as the winner, please send your contact information via a Facebook message to my “Mind Trace” page.  I will announce the winner here, on my website, so please check back here when the contest is over.

*If you do not respond within 72 hours,  you will forfeit your place, and I will select another winner. If that happens, I will post the new winner at that time.  

Amazon is Speedy

Well, it happened much faster than I expected, but you can now purchase both the Kindle and paperback editions of Mind Trace on Amazon now!



It will take a little while for Amazon to finish uploading the information, like the picture for the paperback edition, linking the Kindle version to the paperback version, and some other minor things. But you can begin purchasing now!

I’d like to thank my family and friends for being so supportive, and for patiently reading my manuscript and offering feedback, grammar corrections, and pointing out plot holes. It’s been an interesting journey, but all your patience and help has finally paid off!

Be sure to “like” my page on Facebook, and help spread the word!
