30 Pieces of Silver
I’m so pleased to be here today! Thanks, Andrea for the wonderful support you give to indie authors.
I’m SO excited about my promotion this Monday, 2/28 Bestseller For A Day, where the Indie Book Collective joins forces with an indie author to propel their book up the Kindle Top 100 Bestsellers . For this amazing event my controversial historical thriller, “30 Pieces of Silver,” is priced at just 99 cents!
Every purchase will help drive my book to the top of the Bestselling Lists and ultimately into the Kindle* Top 100! This will hopefully be a historic day in publishing history as we count on all of you, our amazing readers, to propel an indie author onto the top lists for the very first time! I just can’t wait!!
This promotion is so critical, not only to my success as an author but for any indie author who wants to show that we can put out quality books. We’re sending a clear message to the NYC publishing industry that our books can compete with the big boys here – but we need you to help us, readers.
So…as a little added incentive for you to participate in “Bestseller for a Day,” (cause I’m all about the fun, you know), I’ve decided to throw in a little something…like, oh the chance to win a FREE KINDLE! Woo-hoo!
Anyone who purchases my eBook – remember, we’re talking only 99¢ here, people— qualifies you for 5 entries into the contest giveaway! You simply need to head to the Bestsellerforaday website after your purchase and follow the directions to secure your entries.
But that’s not all. How about a BONUS BUY? Yep. The IBC is offering Cristyn West’s Patterson-style thriller “Plain Jane” as a “Bonus Buy” for just 99¢ as well!
Wait, it gets even better! Purchase “Plain Jane” at the same time you buy “30 Pieces of Silver” and we will rebate you the full purchase price of “Plain Jane!”  Just head over to the Bestseller For A Day rebate page, follow the instructions and if you qualify, we will rebate you the full 99 cents for “Plain Jane.”
AND – oh yes, there’s even more – 5 additional entries into the free Kindle giveaway contest!
Phew!  That’s a lot of indie action for one day, but that’s what “Bestseller for a Day” is ALL about. 
Authors, readers, and reviewers all coming together to celebrate the indie spirit!  And, of course, entering to win a free Kindle! LOL
*And remember, even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can still download an eBook: all you need is a smartphone or computer. See the Amazon free Kindle app page for details.
