How would you like to buy one beach read and get 10 beach reads as a free gift? If you’re like many people, you’d love to load up your e-reader with beach reads for summer vacation, but don’t have time to spend aimlessly browsing retail sites clicking on random book covers. Every day on Twitter, book lovers tweet pleas such as “Help! I need Kindle suggestions!” Or, “Going on vacation. Need books for my Nook.” Or “Taking a long car ride. Need audiobooks. Suggestions?”
That’s the focus of #BeachReadSOS – to help book lovers load their e-readers with quality books so they won’t need to call SOS. SOS also refers to Sink or Swim, the fictional TV game show featured in my mystery novel of the same title. The show takes place on a Tall Ship and contestants must walk the plank, including my heroine Cassidy who gets booted off in chapter one. After she returns to her normal life as a personal trainer, Cassidy needs to call SOS for real when a killer follows her every move. Anyone who buys Sink or Swim before June 1, 2013 (the e-book is on sale for 99 cents for a limited time at many retailers) can contact me for 10 free books representing a wide range of popular genres including romantic comedy, mystery, suspense, thriller, contemporary romance, and fantasy. Instructions on how to redeem the offer are below. I also want to mention that there is a brand new audiobook edition just released this month and it is narrated by the talented actress Funda Duval – it’s like listening to a movie without the visuals. Her performance and range of voices is truly amazing. Listen to a sample on Audible.
Buy my beach read Sink or Swim at any of the below retailers and get 10 beach reads for free! Let me know you’ve purchased the e-book or brand new audiobook edition by June 1, 2013, or that you’ve read the book in the past, by sending any of the following to stacy at stacyjuba.com – forward me your receipt, OR type out the first couple lines of Chapter 5, OR send me a link to a review of Sink or Swim (new or old) that you posted on a retail site, reader site, or your blog. As a thank you, I will send you a list of free Smashwords codes for the 10 books featured below, which were generously donated by my author friends for this campaign. Smashwords offers books in formats compatible with Kindle, Nook, iPad, Sony, phones, computers, and more. Included with the list of codes will be information on how you can download the books onto your e-reader device. Please note that the last day to redeem these free codes will be June 5, 2013.
