Hey all,

I posted this in the horror section but since my book is a supernatural crime thriller, I thought I might find some people interested in it as well in the thriller section.

Word of mouth and good reviews sell books and I intend to spread the word about my new horror novel, Bitternest. Here's the deal: I will draw three copies of my book to anyone who will agree to review it on Amazon.com within 30 days of receiving it from me. The release date is May 1st but nothing is set in stone so let's put it for early May. If you're interested, drop me a line at info@alandraven.com

I'll be accepting names until May 1st. After that, I'll announce the three winners and will ship your books.

For any additional information on the book, visit this page: http://www.alandraven.com/media.htm

Hope to hear from you in large numbers,

Alan, have you tried submitting to any blog reviewers? I noticed that your book is coming out via iUniverse - there's a site that specializes in reviewing iUniverse books: http://iuniversebookreviews.blogspot.com/ and links to the other blogs that review self-published books.

Good luck!

Thanks for the link, Dawno! I wasn't aware that there was a blog that reviewed iUniverse books. I'll definitely submit a copy there. As for other blogs, I've been in touch with two horror bloggers and they've both told me they'd be happy to review my book. I was mainly thinking of sending copies out to magazines, book review websites, and newspapers, but blogs sound like a good way to go, too. Thanks for the heads up!
