Call it what you want, I love giving out prizes to my readers. So in the spirit of doing it more often I’ve begun my character reviews where I critique another author’s character and give that book to a reader. I think it’s going well so far, though I haven’t had a huge response, I’m happy with the new followers I have now (thank you!). However, I do need to make a couple of adjustments already.
First of all, I’d originally posted on Sunday and drew a name on Wednesday. I thought that would give everyone plenty of time to read the post and comment on it. Well that takes up half a week and cuts down on my posting. I prefer to post a couple times a week rather than have one on top of another. Therefore, the critiques will now be posted on Mondays and I’ll draw the winner Tuesday evening. That’s still over twenty-four hours for everyone to get their comments in, and I won’t feel like I’m covering up the character critiques with other posts.
Second, even though I just got this thing off the ground in April, I will not be doing it in June. Don’t worry, the characters for May have already been chosen and the full list is available on my site. However, in June I will once again be doing my Birthday Blog Tour. I’m setting up dates and already have quite a few. I will be giving prizes on every single stop and don’t want to overload myself. I promise to have the full schedule listed here on the blog and on my site by the last week of May.
That being said, I’ll need suggestions for July character reviews. So far I’ve only done romance genres but I am a very eclectic reader. I also have an extra copy of Stephen King’s The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon. I hadn’t put it on the schedule because both copies are used and I can’t decide if either is good enough for a giveaway. Does anyone mind pages marked on the edge in marker where I crossed out a name? Plus I really love historical fiction. I don’t have any giveaway copies yet, but I am an avid book buyer 😉
That’s everything for now. If you have any suggestions for character reviews, guest blog posts for my blog tour or anything else, feel free to comment below.
