Free E-novel... My hopes, my plea...
So here is my hope for this promotion: 1,000 copies given away. I know that for some authors that would be a disastrous result - I've heard some can give away that many in an hour. Heck, some can sell that many in an hour. For me, however, it would be a bit of a coup. Anything beyond that would be wonderful.
And here is my plea - If you Twitter or Facebook or have a mailing list of email addresses or participate on a listserv or just normally call a lot of people or don't mind shouting out your window or from your front porch, could you please let people know? Does it help to have the web address available? Here it is: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006SR3B1Y.
And if I've held your interest this long, let me say something about the story. In essence, it's about a father's love for his daughter - a little girl lost story. But not just that. If you've ever loved someone and then lost them, even for a moment, then recall that moment - when you turned arond in the mall and couldn't see your child, when you got a phone call from the police about your lover who is hours overdue, the message from the hospital left on an answering machine that merely says there's been an accident and can you contact them about someone who's place in your heart can't be filled by another. It's about that moment and what you would do to make it go away, to make things right, to bring your loved one home safe. It's about that.
