So it’s that time of year when we begin to gear up towards that wonderful month of sharing and caring and we Maria Gibbs and myself have something a little bit different for all you booklovers, authors poets and writers in general.
***Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. Fill in the attached form and we will get back to you as soon as possible to confirm your place. ***
The first event will be a featured author each day.
We will need 23 authors in total (including ourselves) and you will get a slot where you can pimp yourself and your books. Competitions and giveaways at your discretion. These slots will last for 45 minutes and any winners should be notified the next day.
We will have these at a set time GMT and if you are in a different country and can’t make that time either Su or Maria can post on your behalf with the previously agreed information you will provide, then when you are able to get on for your time zone you can interact with your followers.
The second event will be our showcase
We are very excited to announce it. You’ve heard of the Eurovision Song Contest well now (drumroll) we’d like to present
How does it work?
Two weeks starting Monday 4th December (Monday to Friday)
A poll will be pinned with that week’s participating authors. Each day three authors will have a thousand words of one of their books posted (We will post it in the morning) and people get to vote on which ones they like. You can vote more than once. At the end of the week the two people with the highest votes will go through to the final.
Follows the same pattern and the two with the highest votes will go through to the final.
The week commencing 18th December the four finalists will showcase the next thousand words of the same book and a new poll will be posted. At the end of the week the poll will close and one author will win.
The author will receive two weeks’ worth of social media advertising from Rose and Maria.
The winning author will provide a copy of the winning book as a prize (print or e-book) and this will be presented to the person who has participated most in voting. If there are more than one, then we will put them into a draw and the winner will be picked randomly.
We need 21 authors for the spotlight and 28 authors for #WorldBookovision. You can apply for both but we will choose on a first come first serve basis. Please fill out the form and return asap.
To ensure that this event is well turned out with a good crowd make sure you invite your friends along to join in the fun and games. This is potentially a really good exposure tool for your work so let’s make this big and a great success for us all.
