Communion Of Dreams

Mmmm … leather.

Time for the drawing for the last nearly-perfect hand-bound cloth copy of Communion of Dreams.

But I want to sweeten the pot. So I’m also going to draw for a single full leather hand-bound copy.  Leather color and type (whether calf or goatskin) to be *MY* choice. That’ll mostly depend on which one I feel like doing when I am in the process of doing the other copies which have already been ordered or are one of the Kickstarter rewards. Either way, it will be one of the leather bindings, worth up to $350. For reasons to be discussed in a subsequent blog post I’ve been a bit delayed in getting to doing these, but you can see a bit of what they will look like here.

So, how do you get your name in for this drawing?

Easy: just link to a review you have written of Communion of Dreams, which is posted on Amazon’s website.

It doesn’t have to be a long review. It doesn’t have to be a positive review.  You don’t have to say anything nice about me, or the book. Just to have read it, and posted a review on Amazon. If you’ve posted a review elsewhere — on your blog, or Goodreads, or anyplace else — feel free to just copy and paste that review to Amazon’s site. Then post a link here as a comment. Please note: if you have already written a review on Amazon, you don’t need to write another one — just post a comment to this blog entry with a link.

To make this even easier, I’ve scheduled promotional days for the Kindle edition for the next four Mondays (8/5, 8/12, 8/19, and 8/26) when you can download the novel for FREE. So you don’t even have to buy the book — just get it (if you haven’t already), review it, and post a link here.

The deadline for posting an entry (that means a link here) is Midnight CDT on August 31, 2013. Anything time-stamped after that will not be included.

One last thing — there will be two winners. One will receive the leather binding, and one the cloth. If for any reason you would rather not receive the leather binding, please say so in your comment, and you will not be entered into that drawing.

So, get writing.

PS: I mean it about that “positive” review. It’s not necessary. I’m going to ask a neutral 3rd party to be the one to do the drawings. So either the quality of the review or the ranking given in it will not be a factor in my decision at all … since it won’t actually be my decision.
