Contest to Go Along with Blog Tour

For my blog tour for Lingering Spirit, I'm holding a contest for anyone who leaves a comment on the most blogs I'll use their name as one of the characters in my 2012 Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel. I'm working on that book right now.

It's going to focus on Officer Gordon Butler because I've had so many people tell me that he's their favorite character.

Anyway, if you'd like to be a character in that book, get busy when the tour begins and visit as many blogs as you can and leave a comment. I'll keep a list and let people know once the tour is over.

Here's the schedule, you might want to copy it to your computer to make it easy to visit the blogs.

We'll see how many people take me up on becoming a character in my book.

This is a fabulous idea, Marilyn!! I've been thinking of some contests or other promo that might step up the number of reviews on Amazon...but I am going to blab on this on the list-serv.

I just thought of this today. I know people pay money at auctions to be a character in a book--so thought this just might work.

You are making almost as many stops as I did and never leaving your armchair. Good work!

Not sure my tour will pay off as well as yours--but we'll see.

I agree about independent bookstores though, they are the only ones I ever do signings or events in.
