(Can I oversell it enough?)

Over at Gina Holmes' excellent blog Novel Journey, she has posted Part One of an interview with me. In the course of the dialogue, you will learn everything you need to know to be a healthier, thinner, more wealthy you in 2006.*

*(Some promises exaggerated for marketing purposes.)

But the real selling point is that you can WIN, WIN, WIN!!! (Actually, five people are going to win, but I got tired of typing the same three letters over and over.)

Gina is giving FIVE WINNERS each an autographed copy of Forgiving Solomon Long, PLUS a short story sneak preview of Deliver Us From Evelyn (not in stores until March!).

There are two ways to enter—which means you can get your name in that hat (so to speak) TWICE.

1) Click on over and post a comment.

2) On your own blog, link your readers to the interview, and then let Gina know you did so.

It's simple. It's easy. And it's the law.*

*(Legal obligation exaggerated for marketing purposes.)

Thank you for your support!

What I want to know is...are you gonna have a contest for autographed copies of DELIVER US FROM EVELYN. I bought FSL way back in June, unsigned. Sniff.

I am not sure what I'll be doing for Evelyn yet.

I want to make sure I pace myself -- it seems like the #1 mistake made in promoting most books is that everyone pulls out all the stops for about six weeks and then just stop and let the book live or die on its own.

I'll be doing some stuff with Evelyn early, but probably looking toward the summer for blog tours and contests and things.

(Or I may get impatient and do it all in March. Who knows?)

Well, whatever you plan, I got your back. I may only get about 24 daily hits on my blog, but that's still 24 people WHO READ and who have pals who read. :) And by next summer, who knows, I might have THIRTY. :D

I know what you mean, btw, about the blitz. Blitze is good (you want to start a ball rolling, and I've seen it make a CBA bestseller!) I purposely chose to delay my review of Marilynn Griffith's Chick Lit, because everyone was doing it about the same time. I figure if I wait a bit, I may catch some who didn't get blitzed the first time round.
