Read Some Blog, Get Some Book

Some interesting things afoot here in Matt Iden Land. To wit:

I’m guest blogging on Omnimystery News today about the inspiration for my protagonist, Marty Singer. If you said Spenser, Reacher, or Pike…you’re way off. Check out the blog to find out why!

Omnimystery is also kindly holding a contest for Blueblood, the second in my Marty Singer series. Three copies (paper or electrons, your choice) being given away. Head on over, read the blog post (you’ll need a code found in my guest post), and enter the contest. Ends October 25! Enter now or be forever cursed!

A Reason to Live is being featured on the Bawdy Book blog tomorrow, October 19. While ARTL isn’t the steamy norm for this corner of the internet, blogger Jennifer Adams was kind enough to make an exception in my case (hey, there aren’t one but TWO sex scenes in the novel). Please swing by and give her a vote, a comment, or at least one tick upward in her site metrics.

Kindle Nation Daily is set to run a sponsored excerpt of A Reason to Live on October 23. Their “Free Kindle Nation Shorts Excerpt – Email Blast” goes out to “over 32,000 opt-in email or Kindle edition subscribers.” They’ll be running a 20,000 word excerpt from A Reason to Live that I hope will wow a whole new raft of consumers in time for…well, it’s a little early for Christmas, but never too late to read a book!

This is the last of three recent attempts to buy love on the internet, the other two being ads on Ereader News Today and Goodreads. When all the numbers are in, I hope to do a wrap up on the return on investment (and effort).

  1. Which ENT ad did you go for? If it was the Bargain Book promo or the Book of the Day, I’ll bet you anything that wins by a country mile…
