Previous Entry | Next Entry

Less than one week to go!

It's hard to believe that nearly three months have passed since the launch of my debut novel, Fur-Face.  Nevertheless, here we are in the last week of the launch promotion.


An evil scientist with a dastardly invention.
A cruel billionaire with a diabolical plan.
What stands in their way?
Two teenagers and one amazing cat.

The bad guys don't stand a chance!

August 31st is the last day to qualify for entry in round 6 of the THFHMPF (Thanks For Helping Me Promote Fur-Face) prize draw (Round 5 winners were Sean hayden, who wins a Quake eBook of his choice AND a Gentleman Jones CD (his name came out twice), and Derrick Ferguson, who also wins a CD).

If you'd like to enter for this last round,
click here for more details.

August 31st also marks the end of the official launch promotion.  Prizes up for grabs include: 

An I are a writer! mug, like the one I'm holding in the photo:
(click on the photo for a closer look at the mug)

The chance to name one of three characters from  Barnum's Revenge (the sequel to Fur-Face).

Six runners-up will win
a Quake eBook of their choice.

Ten more runners-up will receive a copy of the Gentleman Jones Fur-Face special edition CD.

The main draw is open to anyone who buys a copy of Fur-Face up until midnight on August 31st, but if you bought the book AND helped me promote it, your entries from the THFHMPF draw are also added to the main one. 

If you've already bought Fur-Face, make sure you send me the receipt (
jon@acatofninetales.com) so you don't miss out on a chance to win.  If you haven't bought it yet, there's still time to get in on the action.  You can find it at Amazon.com ($2.99) or read a sample chapter first at OmniLit.com ($2.99).

Speaking of promotion--
I'll prolly put two more collections of stories
on amazon before this year is over,
and if you think it might be of help to you to have
"--Jon Gibbs, author of Fur-Face"
on the back of one
or both of them, that could be easily arranged.

Of course, you'd have to actually say something I could quote,
preferably by putting a review of one of my first three books
on amazon. If you can't spare the cost of the book,
I could send you a pdf file as a review copy.

And if you don't want to be alone on the back of my book,
you could offer this same opportunity to others,
perhaps in some sort of contest arrangement.

If, for any reason, this strikes you as
something other than a good idea,
you know that I'm not easily offended.

Thanks for the offer, Stacy, but I'll pass for the moment :)

I posted in my lj that your contest was almost over.

BTW, I found links for your book in Barnes & Noble and Amazon but not Borders. If it's supposed to be searchable at Borders, you might want to talk to your agent.

Thanks, Stephanie :)

It's in the pipeline to go up at the B&N website, though from what I hear that can take a while.

Hey, congrats! (Sorry, late to the party!) That's a very cool cover :D Makes me wish I read e-books, but I just can't read books off a screen :(

Thanks, Shannon :)

Me too, don't feel alone!

Jon, when the push is over, I'd love to hear a wrap-up from you about what you think worked and didn't.

Funny you should say that :)

Three months! How did it go so fast? I was just talking about your book to my sister. We were saying how much we enjoyed reading YA novels, and I'd said I'm reading one now ... which means, apparently, reading it for about two months, which means I am not getting enough reading time in at all.

If I'm not working this weekend, I want to snuggle up and finish Fur-Face and hopefully get a review for it in the works!

Congrats on all of it, Jon.
