Saturday, July 19th, is Reader Appreciation Day at The Sweet Spot, the Yahoo Group run by Sloan Parker, Jambrea Jo Jones, and me! This fun event is held on the third Saturday of every month and it's a day set aside on out group for authors of M/M Romance to say "thanks" to all the readers out there who support our writing efforts. The list of prizes donated by generous authors will be posted this Friday.
On Reader Appreciation Day (RAD), we'll post a giveaway thread throughout the day featuring a list of all prizes available in the group. Just respond to one of the giveaway threads on the Yahoo Group between 8am and 8pm EST to be included in the drawing.
Authors, if you're interested in participating in the giveaway, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please state what you'd like to donate for the July giveaway and include a link and a cover art pic. For prizes, you can donate books, gift certificates, swag, and other items. All types of prizes are welcomed! At the end of the giveaway, we will email your winner to you so you can send your prize personally. In the future, we'll include you in our monthly announcement for a chance to donate. You can participate as little or as often as you'd like in the RAD giveaway.
Reader Appreciation Day is also an Open Excerpt Day, and all authors are welcomed to post to blurbs and excerpts of their work, and of course, share any other fun news you've got going on!
Hope to see you all at The Sweet Spot!
