WARNING: Don’t read this blog too fast. You might miss a really cool prize if you do…
There is an interesting contest going on between a bunch of authors which I thought was worthy of a quick post.
Check out what Karen Gowen is doing on her blog, here: http://karenjonesgowen.blogspot.com/2010/05/bmillers-pay-it-forward-best-contest.html
And this was inspired by B. Miller Fiction, here: http://bmillerfiction.blogspot.com/2010/05/pay-it-forward-giveaway.html
Here is another cool post by some Mooks: http://mooksinthemovies.blogspot.com/2010/05/paying-it-forward.html
I am quite impressed with this. Why? Because of the way B. Miller is offering to buy a book from an author. Do a review. Spread the word. Get local stores to carry the book. This is an author’s dream, to get readers to talk up their book and create buzz.
What is also interesting to me was the way other authors and writers have started to link to the contest. I am curious to see how far this spreads… There are quite a few sites already linking to these contests. And adding to them. If you click on all the links, it is going to take you some time to get through them all, I am sure.
I hope it goes viral. 🙂
I have been REALLY busy lately. I am in the middle of writing the sequel to The Thorn, and so my blogging time has been somewhat limited. SO… I need to keep my own addition to the contest SIMPLE.

I have FOUR, (Yes, I said FOUR) author signed books which will be given away as a set. A book from myself, Tristi, Michele, and Kim. One winner. ALL FOUR BOOKS.
How is that for a prize? I will pay the shipping (U.S. only, please. I can’t afford international shipping). Of course, if the winner is outside the states, and they wish to pick up the shipping charges, I would be more than happy to send the books to them.
Here are the books:
The Thorn, by Daron D. Fraley (that’s me!)
My review of Secret Sisters, by Tristi Pinkston
My review of Summer in Paris, by Michele Ashman Bell
My review of I’ll Know You By Heart, by Kimberly Job
