You read the title correctly! For those who have seen my lame propaganda concerning the release of my science fiction short story "Abyss" but weren't sure you wanted to spend 99 cents to read it, here's your chance! In order to get one of 25 FREE copies from me, there are four very simple things you need to do:
1.) Be one of the first 25 followers of this blog. If you're already a follower, skip to step 2!
2.) Help me spread the word about "Abyss" by posting a link to its Amazon page on your blog or social media site. (The link to the Amazon page will be listed below in this post.)
3.) Send me an e-mail at BryanDurkin at hotmail dot com, with a link to your blog or social media site. In other words, if you follow me, I'll follow you! I will verify the link is present on your site. This will also give me your email address so I can e-mail you your free copy of "Abyss"!
4.) Once you've read "Abyss," leave a review on its Amazon page. I'm not trying to buy five-star reviews here! I want your honest opinion of the work. I hope you think it's worth five stars, but if you think it's worth only one, let me know why!
Some important notes: Unfortunately, you'll need a Kindle reader of some sort to read "Abyss", as Kindle is the only format it's currently available on. I don't really feel comfortable e-mailing original manuscript copies. Plus, you wouldn't want to miss the cool cover art!
The contest will officially start tomorrow, Wednesday, February 6th, at 7pm Pacific Standard Time. This is to give folks a chance to see it coming and let everyone have a chance to be one of the first 25. I wish I could give unlimited copies, but unfortunately, I have to pay for them out of my own pocket, and I'm not exactly gainfully employed at the moment.
Here is the link to the Amazon page for "Abyss."
If you have any questions, leave a comment to this post, or send me an e-mail at the above address. I will post again tomorrow at the official start of the contest. Thanks for participating!
