RI Authors Showcase Begins Next Monday!


With 40 local authors participating in this annual event, there are not only great writers to discover, but daily (sometimes twice daily!) giveaways and some excellent prizes at the end of the event. Drawings for the daily giveaways will take place one week after the blog’s publication, and the winner will be notified by email. The author will coordinate delivery of the prize directly with the winner.

This year’s Grand Prize is a $250 Amazon gift card, just in time for holiday shopping. The Bonus Prize is a $100 Amazon gift card, and new this year we have a “Cheer Up You Won Something” prize that consists of a $50 Amazon gift card PLUS your name as a character in author Tim Baird’s new novel. Those are some great prizes!

Now, I chose Amazon because it’s easy. They sell everything and deliver it to you. But….if you win one of these Amazon prizes and would prefer a gift card to somewhere else, I’ll accommodate you if I can. As long as I can make it happen, I will – so if you would rather give the business to your local bookstore or gift shop, I’ll do what I can.

So! Be sure you’re subscribed to this blog – that way you’ll receive every post straight to your mailbox and you won’t miss out. There will be 40 posts in 30 days (yes, we had such interest that I had to double up). Primary features will appear between 1:00 and 2:00 AM (EST) and if there’s a second post that day, it will drop between 1:00 and 2:00 PM (EST). I’ll share all of the posts to my Facebook page as well.

This is your opportunity to not only win books and gift cards and swag. You can also help an author out by following their pages, subscribing to their newsletters, even buying one of their books if you don’t win it. Most of us are independent authors and always grateful for your support.

See you back here next Monday, where I will kick off the month with my new novel and a sweet little giveaway. Until then, be safe, be kind, be happy!
