Contest for a Cause


Here’s how:


Today is the official online launch of the paperback of 100 Stories for Queensland.

Readers are invited to purchase a book on Amazon, in a nominated 24-hour period, with the intent to capitalize on the volume of sales to move the book up the Amazon bestseller list. The higher up the chart it is (we’re aiming for a spot in the top 100) the more visible it becomes, which may lead to even high sales.

The more books sold, the more money raised.

If you can’t buy on the day, you can add it to your wishlist. Every little bit counts.




Me and Holly Black


To enter to win a SIGNED copy of White Cat :


- Be a follower (1 point)

- Promote the contest or the 100 Stories Amazon link (1 point each: blog, twitter, facebook)

- Tally your points in the comment box and be sure to provide your e-mail address.


Optional to earn extra points: buy the book on Amazon TODAY (5 points)


100 Stories for Queensland is a charity anthology to assist the victims of the Queensland floods. Stories were donated by writers from across the globe (like me).

100% of the profit from the sale of the anthology will be donated to the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal.


Thank you for your support of this worthy cause.


Love,

Theresa


P.S. Contest ends midnight EST, 05/18/11
