So I'm probably supposed to be encouraging you all to go out and pre-order Making Waves with actual money.
OK, fine. You can do that on Amazon or Barnes & Noble or Powells or Borders or IndieBound or probably some dark alley out of the trunk of an El Camino.
Now that I've got my fake sales pitch out of the way, how about I just recap where you might be able to get it for free?
Today is supposedly the last day to send me an entry in my contest where you create a photo reenactment of my cover to win an advance reading copy (ARC) of the book. Details are here and because I'm feeling generous, I'll go ahead and extend the deadline through 10 p.m. PST on Saturday, June 11.
Author Trisha Leigh is also giving away an ARC in a 150-word writing contest on her blog. Deadline for that is Sunday, so hop on over there and give it a shot.
Last but not least, Sydnee Thompson is also doing a blog giveaway for an ARC of Making Waves. You have until June 25 to enter her contest, but you might as well jump on it now before you forget.
So there you are. Three possible ways to get a free copy of Making Waves before it hits shelves August 1.
Ever notice how free food usually tastes better? I can't promise the same with this book (and I really don't recommend consuming paper products) but free is always a good price, right?
