A Promise, A Win, And A Beach Read

beachreadI’m not a competitive person. I met one of my closest friends about twelve years ago during my short-lived attempt at golf, when we were both taking group lessons at a local country club. We’d met before, so when we were paired up for the morning, nothing seemed amiss. Except, this was a competition. Someone had to win. Someone should have wanted to win.

“You can win,” I said. “I don’t really care about winning.”

“Me either!”

We’ve been friends ever since.

I do compete with myself, with assumptions, and with naysayers.

That was, until this morning when I started feeling like a politician. You know, the imaginary honest kind.

THE GLASS WIVES is listed as a Best Beach Read for 2013 on Goodreads and OMG I want to win. I don’t even know if there is a way to win. But I find myself on social media asking for votes.

If you are on Goodreads and so inclined, here’s the link: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/35381.Best_Beach_Reads_2013

If you’re not on Goodreads or not inclined, that’s fine too. I hope you’ll read THE GLASS WIVES and pass the word the old fashioned way.  You know, on Twitter.

Debut authors like me need help from readers. Word of mouth = help. Voting will increase the visibility of THE GLASS WIVES on Goodreads where a gazillion (precise number) of readers gather to learn about books. Learning about an unknown author opens up readers to the possibility of giving the book a try.  And that’s all we can ask for right?

So, while I promise, promise, promise NOT to fill your in-box with daily travails of a debut author, as you can see, there’s a lot going on and sharing the journey makes it more fun.

Yep, even more fun than winning.

  1. I guess I can’t really vote yet since I can’t order it on my Kindle. It says pre-order. So excited for you but how can you get the voted if we can’t get the book yet? Kindle says I will get it on May 14th.
