Many of you know that my friend Anne R. Allen and I co-authored a nonfiction book for writers that came out this year. It's called How to be a Writer in the E-Age...And Keep Your E-Sanity. It's getting lovely reviews on the bookseller sites, and the writers I know who have picked up a copy have good things to say.
For those of who who don't know Anne (and I'm guessing most of you do, at least by way of her accomplishments), she is a highly successful publishing industry blogger. Her blog, Anne R. Allen's Blog...with Ruth Harris, has garnered numerous awards and is quickly becoming a leading go-to source for up-to-the-minute industry news. So the match was a good one in terms of what we had to offer to our fellow writers, especially those on the newer end of the process.
Now Anne and I are teaming up to bring you some free copies of How to be a Writer. Here's what Anne is announcing on her blog today:
Catherine Ryan Hyde and I have written a handbook for beginning writers called HOW TO BE A WRITER IN THE E-AGE…AND KEEP YOUR E-SANITY. It doesn't favor either traditional or self-publishing and has lots of advice for both routes.
In honor of the holidays, Catherine and I are running a promotion this week of HOW TO BE A WRITER. We're giving away THREE PAPERBACK COPIES and THREE E-BOOKS-any format: Nook, Kindle, Kobo (the ebooks come with free updates.)
Anybody who would like to be eligible for the free give-aways, just mention "free book" in the comments. If you go over to Catherine's blog and comment there, you'll get your name in twice. The contest will go until 9 PM next Saturday, December 15th. Winners will be announced on this blog next Sunday.
"This blog" means Anne's blog, but I'll announce the winners here as well.
Now, I'll say the same thing as Anne, but in reverse: If you're one of my regular blog readers, or found your way here from a social media link, leave a comment with the phrase "free book" below. Then, do stop by Anne R. Allen's Blog and leave a comment with the phrase "free book" there, too. That way you'll have two chances. And if you're interested in winning the book, you'll love Anne's blog. So do take a look at what she does for writers while you're there.
We have winners!
Here's the announcement from Anne's blog today:
Thanks to everyone who entered our contest last week for free copies of How to be a Writer in the E-Age...and Keep Your E-Sanity! which I co-authored with Catherine Ryan Hyde. We assigned everybody a number (two numbers if you entered on both blogs) and put them into the random number sequence generator at random.org. (Timestamp: 2012-12-16 05:05:33 UTC)
And the winners of the pbooks are: Stella Notte, Linda Gray, and Jlmbewe
