All Revved up and Ready to Rock!

For A to Z 2015 I'm

ALL ABOUT THAT PLACE

I'll be highlighting Blogger Friends' Places
and
I'll be giving Book Event Tips


I'm ROARING about these RIGHTEOUS Bloggers!


RANDI LEE - sweet and RAMBUNCTIOUS, I'm glad I met RANDI LEE last year - it's been a REWARD to know her and she immediately helped me with an awesome REVIEW, RIGHT after meeting her! READ her blog!


RHONDA ALBOM - ROLL on over to RHONDA'S for the virtual REALITY trip of a lifetime! She's been everywhere - for REALZ! Her photos are without RIVAL, plus she RIDDLES her stories with a ROCKIN sense of humor - She's a RIOT!


ROBIN AMBROSE - this lady has RICOCHETED back from some trying times and is better than ever!


I hope you will REVEL in these RESPECTABLE Book Event Tips

RAFFLES!
Everyone loves a good giveaway.

  • I usually save RAFFLES for bigger events, like my RELEASE parties where I know people will RSVP and show up.
  • My prizes RANGE from a free signed copy of my book to donated Coke products (via my hub's work catalog) and dinner out on the town.
  • I always RAFFLE off some of my bracelets which REEL in lots of READERS as shiny things usually do.
  • And depending on the book, I have other trinkets and toys to REACH more REVELERS.
  • Though my Newsletter is in its infancy, all I REQUEST for people to enter the RAFFLE is their email to be put on my READER list, if I ever get the distribution up and RUNNING!

I should be making lists of all these authors you've been listing, but my kindle and my ipad are choked full........so behind on reading. lol

Where are you going to be in Cols? Would love to meet up if the timing works out. Want to hear about the homeless group you mentioned. Leave your email for me in the contact form on my right sidebar so we can communicate.

I tried to do my own giveaways a few times awhile ago, and there was almost zero response. I don't know what would happen if WordPress allowed the Rafflecopter script to be used. As far as I know, it still doesn't support Rafflecopter forms.

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

The last two events I've attended have had bingo games with prizes provided by the authors.

These all sound like useful tips.

Raffles always go down really well whenever we need to do fundraising for something.
