I’ve posted about writing a romantic comedy for over a year now. I tracked its progress in word count in my sidebar under the working title Tea. Now it’s time to share the real title and the cover with you. As you can see, it’s titled High Tea & Flip Flops. The title refers to the snarky nicknames the two main characters secretly give each other.
Romantic comedy is a new genre for me, so I decided to try something new in publishing. I submitted High Tea & Flip Flops to the Kindle Scout program, and it was accepted. Kindle Scout is a new “reader-powered” publishing venture by Amazon, which means readers help decide if a book gets published. How? By nomination. And the great thing is that if you nominate my book and Amazon publishes it, you’ll get a free Kindle copy!
At the Kindle Scout site, I’ll have a campaign page for 30 days. Displayed on that page is the cover image, a short description of the story, an excerpt, my bio, and a brief Q&A. Also you’ll see that all-important Nominate Me button.
I hope you’ll support my campaign—it costs you nothing! Don’t wait to nominate High Tea & Flip Flops. Please help it hit the Hot & Trending list and stay there! Here’s how you can help:
- Step One: please go to my campaign page and click the blue “nominate me” button.
- Step Two: please spread the word to all your friends who might like to see High Tea & Flip Flops published.
- Step Three: please watch for my announcement and reminders on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus and share them with your followers and friends. The campaign lasts for 30 days, so periodically I’ll post reminders to nominate High Tea & Flip Flops.
As you may know, I have a minuscule budget for marketing. This is my best chance to not only receive a small advance ($1500) but to get a promotional boost from Amazon. Amazon! This Kindle Scout campaign means a lot to me, so I’m sure you can imagine I’m very excited about it.
