12 Days of Review Requests from Jo Michaels

I wanted to take a moment to share this opportunity I discovered yesterday because heaven knows we could all use unique opportunities like this one. Gaining reviews is essential to helping us all gain credibility as storytellers. As much as I tend to wish it wasn’t so, word of mouth from readers does help us sell our books.

Author Jo Michaels is currently running a 12 Days promotion, each day she will post a new rafflecopter for entries, and in the comments section of that blog, you can pitch one of your books for her to read and review. She will check out your sample, and announce the winner on the next day’s blog post. She will also link to all the previous day’s winners so interested readers can check out the sample and see if they might be interested in the books offered.

All of the rules for this unique and exciting 12 Days can be found right here on this post. Please read through them carefully before pitching, take time to formulate a one minute elevator pitch and present it.

I pitched my book yesterday, and it got a few people interested. Hope you’ll check it out!

Good luck to all who decide to take a chance on this. It’s a really fun way to meet new people and get your book in front of some potential new readers. Great ideas like this must be shared!

  1. I’m binge-reading, as is my wont, and wanted to thank you for sharing this (and also the excellent teaser for your book, if I may combine two purposes into one comment!). Have I mentioned that I love this community?

    • I’m learning so much from this site, and the various places it takes me to. I just hope I will ultimately give back as much as I’m getting, because I’m pretty far in the red at the moment!

  2. This is a great share, Jenny! Thanks a million, and believe me, this community loves YOU, too. You are AWESOME, girl!! And you, as well, Karen. I’m so happy the two of you are here, that you are learning from each other, and sharing with all of us. It’s the SHARING part that will make this such a great place, as we continue to grow.

    I’m going to try to enter this one, Jenny, though I have no clue how to write a “one-minute elevator pitch,” nor do I even know what that means, really. ?? But I’ll research it, and check yours, too.

    • You can do it, Marcia! Good luck. Elevator pitches are slightly different than summaries. Imagine if you stepped into an elevator with a publisher you wanted to sell your idea to. You have one minute to compose all the major key points of your story and sell that idea before the elevator reaches its final destination *DUN DUN DUNNNNNN*! .

  3. See, this is why I don’t like Twitter all that much. I’m very fond of L & C, or as my editor calls it, long and convoluted. šŸ˜¦ Workin’ on it, though. I’ll check yours out later, Jenny, and see if I can come up with something for mine.
