I have one last update for everyone.  The Bakkian Chronicles short stories collection (yeah, I know – there’s only 2!) should be available on Kindle by the end of the week with a price tag of $0.99.  It’ll contain both Disneyland Debacle and Winter Wonderland.  I’ll also release it through Smashwords so that it’ll show up at all the other main retailers.

That’s it for now!  I hope everyone has a great week!

Coolest-trivia-about-your-hometown Contest!

For this next blog contest I thought I’d get to know some more of the fans and see where they live!  So here’s the thing:  based on where you live, what’s the coolest tourist attraction, or most unique thing your hometown is known for?

I’ll give you an example.  I’m in Lake Havasu City, AZ.  My town is known for being the home of the London Bridge.  Coming in at a strong second would be the spring break hotspot that draws in thousands of college kids every year.

Tell me about your town!  What are you known for?  At the end of the month I’ll have my wife pick her favorite and that person becomes the winner!

What’s at stake:  a Bakkian Chronicles cap, as modeled by Peanut on my Facebook page.    Want to enter?  Tell me about your town!

Newest Goodreads Giveaway!

The last Goodreads giveaway I did last month for Lost City had so many people vying for a copy that I thought I’d create another one.  Up for grabs is another copy of Lost City (Tales of Lentari #1), autographed by yours truly.  Would you like to enter but are not sure how to do so?  All you need to do is be a member of Goodreads.com, and if you aren’t already, no problem.  Membership is free.  It’s a place where you can meet up with authors or fellow readers and talk about the books you love, or hate I suppose.  Many authors are willing to chat about their books and answer any questions their fans might ask.

I’m already a member, and quite a few of my friends are, too.  So if you are thinking about joining up now would be the perfect opportunity to do so!  And when you’re ready, here’s the link to Lost City’s giveaway:

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!

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!

J.

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!

A few more suggestions, please!

Hi everyone!  First off, TGIF!  Secondly, as I’m getting close to wrapping Lost City up, I could use a few more names.  Dwarf names.  Maybe even a surname or a family name.  Any suggestions?

Now’s your chance to wind up in a book’s acknowledgement page.  Want to see your name in print?  Post your suggestions below!

Thanks!  Have a great weekend!
