Karen Martin is seeking anyone would be willing to join in on a promo she is running. She is considering adding a new perk, especially for book lovers: The “10 for 10” deal. This involves offering one e-book each from 10 different authors for $10. In return for you donating e-book copies, she will post your book on the campaign page in the photos and include a write-up and links (plus write about the new perk on her facebook, twitter, blog, etc.). She’ll also choose two of the contributing authors as winners for the “Author’s Only” perk on the campaign – a free full-page promo in both the e-book and paperback when they are published (later this summer). It does not need to be a full book; a novella, short story, or a “preview” of your next book will also be fine Right now the campaign is doing amazingly well, so this could be some good exposure. If you’d like to learn more or donate an e-book, go here.
