Lost City Raffle

Wow!  Two raffles going on at the same time!  Gotta love it!

Naturally, the first raffle, print copies of all three books being awarded to the same person, is going on.   But, I also created a page for Lost City on Facebook and promised that once I hit 50 Likes I’ll hold a raffle for a print copy of that book.  Less than a day later we hit 50.  So for that, thank you very much!

Also, I would like to point out that there’s a brand new excerpt from Something Wyverian This Way Comes (Tales of Lentari #2) on the Excerpts page.  Go check it out and let me know what you think!

Have a great day and happy reading!

 

**UPDATE**

Winner has been selected!  Congrats goes to Christina Carr!  Email me at jmpoole (at) gmail dot com with your mailing addy and I’ll get your book sent off to you.  Thanks to everyone for playing!  And remember – for every 50 Likes on Facebook I’ll create another raffle so help spread the word!

150 Likes! Time for a Raffle!

I’ve been promising it.  I’ve told you guys what needs to happen in order for me to start the raffle and you guys came through!

Thank you!!!

Without further ado, I hereby create my biggest raffle to date:  signed copies of Prophecy (Bakkian Chronicles #1), Insurrection (Bakkian Chronicles #2), and Amulet of Aria (Bakkian Chronicles #3).  They will be awarded to one winner and one winner only!

Want to enter the raffle?  Leave a comment below asking to be entered and tell me which of the books is your favorite.  That’s all!

As many of you know, my fourth book has recently been released.  Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1) isn’t included in the raffle, I’m sorry to say.  Unless…  The magic number is 200.  200 Likes on Facebook and I’ll make this raffle include all four books!

The time frame for this raffle will be through November.  The raffle is over on December 1st.  If we hit 200 Likes by that time then we’ll consider the stretch goal has been achieved and Lost City will also go along to the winner.

So spread the word!  Enter now for your chance to win some fantasy books!  Good luck to all who enter!

Featured on Smashwords!

Mark Coker, founder of Smashwords, wrote a post on his blog extolling the virtues of Apple and their love off Indie authors.  In his post Mr. Coker talks about how Apple has relaunched their Breakout Books promo which again features Indie authors from several different genres.

I made the cut!  I was mentioned by name under the Science Fiction & Fantasy section!  I can’t tell you how exciting that was to see!  Wanting to see for myself, I opened up Apple’s iBookstore and immediately saw the Breakout Books section.  If you click on that and then scroll down until you see the Sci-Fi & Fantasy section, and then scroll to the right to check out the titles in that section, you’ll see my book!  The Prophecy (Bakkian Chronicles #1) has its cover in there!  Woohoo!!!

On an unrelated note, I’ve received my first set of feedback from my beta readers on Lost City…   Let me just say this is why I have beta readers!!  You guys rock!  With any amount of luck I’ll be able to release my fourth book very soon!

Be Among the First to own Lost City!

Greetings fans of Lentari!  The wait is almost over!

Be among the first to own an autographed, paperback copy of Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1)!  In anticipation of my fourth book’s upcoming release, I’m creating a raffle for one of the first copies to be printed.  Hot off the presses.  🙂

All you have to do to enter is make sure you have Liked the Bakkian Chronicles on Facebook (you can hit the FB button on the top right corner of this page) and then leave a comment to tell me that you were here.   That’s it!  The raffle is open to everyone, regardless of locale, so if you’re in Australia, and would like to try and win a print copy, feel free to enter!

To keep this interesting, if I get at least fifteen people entering, I’ll add a second copy, thereby having two winners of a print copy.  If I get to twenty, I’ll release a sneak peek of the cover!  Help spread the word!

If you haven’t already, check out the book that started it all!  The Prophecy (Bakkian Chronicles #1) on ebook in practically all formats.  Always free!  Links can be found along the right of the blog for various retailers.  This message will also be posted on FB.   Thanks for stopping by!  Happy reading!

**UPDATE**

As promised, here’s a sketch of Lost City’s cover!  I hope everyone likes it!

I Love Wednesdays!

Ye olde notebook is open, displaying thoughts on all aspects of Lentari…  Beads of condensation are seen dripping down a frosty can of Pepsi Max…  A glass jar containing on a few colorful gumballs is sitting on apreviously printed chapter…

The cell phone is off and the corgi is asleep in her chair.  I do believe we’re ready!!   It’s off to Lentari for a solid day of writing!  As I did last year in preparation of Amulet of Aria’s release, every Wednesday I’ll give away 5 ebooks of one of my titles.

Up for grabs this week are five (5) copies of Insurrection (Bakkian Chronicles #2).  Since Prophecy (Bakkian Chronicles #1) is always free of charge, that’s two books you’d be able to read for free!  So hop over to the blog and leave a comment to let me know you were there and if you provide me an email addy, I’ll email you the coupon (and the link) for a complimentary copy of Insurrection!

Good luck & happy reading!

Contest Prizes Announced!

I just finished updating the Lentari Gift Shoppe (and thanks to my poor taste in women’s t-shirts, I’ll be updating it again tomorrow).  I’ve removed a few things and was able to add a slew of new products.  I’ve gone through them and have selected the prizes for the winners!  I haven’t got a pic of 3rd place prize yet.  But here’s what 1st and 2nd place winners will win!

1st place:  Bakkian Chronicles cap

2nd place:  Prophecy journal

3rd place:  Set of three refrigerator magnets, one for each book cover.

Have you entered the contest yet?  Whip out those cell phones and snap a picture of your Ereader with one of the Bakkian Chronicles book covers on it and snap a pic with it at a landmark, or tourist spot, or any setting where you think would make a great picture!  Post on Facebook or else email it to me and Sarah & Lia will select the top three winners!  The contest runs through May, so get your entries in now!

Good luck!
