UPDATE: I am happy to report the 50 have been received. But sad to say I can't take any more influencers. To all of you who contacted me, thank you. And for those who didn't make it in, please consider buying the book this summer!
I talked a bit about my new book last week when I wrote this post. Go there to find a link to the book and the cover image. (The part about my book is towards the end.)
Now that you know about it, would you like to be an influencer for it?
What is an influencer? It's someone who agrees to let me send a book to you just before it's released. In return you offer to let people in your world know about it. You can tell people in your neighborhood, your church, your family. You can send out an email to your friends who like to read. You can post a review onto your Facebook page or tweet about it. You can write a blog post about the book. Or pin it on Pinterest. Or some combination thereof.
You're basically saying, "Yes, I'd love to tell people about The Wishing Tree!" And in exchange, you get a copy for F-R-E-E. All I ask in return is that you help to generate that oh-so-important word of mouth in whatever way you feel comfortable. Think your influence doesn't matter? Think again!
My publisher is asking me to send a list of influencers soon so if you'd like to be on that list and are one of the first fifty to get back to me, I'd so appreciate you being an influencer. Email me with your name, where the book should be sent to, and how you're going to share it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
