It's contest time!

Hello, everyone!
Today is Thursday, which can mean only one thing -- it must be time for a little blatant self-promotion!! :)
I've decided to run a little contest, and I hope that everyone will join in. Here's the object -- to publicize Learn Me Good as much as humanly possible. The way to do this is to post this web address http://learnmegood2.blogspot.com on other web sites, forums, newspapers, etc.
When you have that web address posted to a legitimate site, e-mail me the link at learnmegood2@yahoo.com. It DOES need to be an actual site though; it doesn't count if you just copy and paste the same line over and over again on a Single 50s Love chat board.

The grand prize is a copy of my book, Learn Me Good, shipped directly to your doorstep! With over 39 copies sold (and counting!), this book has been entertaining people of all ages for countless days. Okay, so I counted -- it's been about 40 days...
I'm going to set the deadline for this contest at May 31. This could be extended or retracted, depending on how much participation there is. The lovely person who e-mails me the most legitimate links by then will win the book! In order to be declared a winner, you must have sent me at least eight links though...
If you have any suggestions, you know where to find me.

Spanky, Wide Ruled, Sybil .... depends on which multiple personality is writing to you at the time. :P

Re: promoting your book

Have you tried phoning your local Barnes & Noble (etc.) to negotiate a book signing in the store?

Also, you could try writing up a Press Release to send to the local newspaper. Local Author Publishes Book .... then if you set up a book signing, send another press release: Local Author to appear at Barnes & Noble to Promote Book.

Just a thought or two on how to get the word out .... good luck!
