The Jester’s Apprentice Giveaway Details

The Jester’s Apprentice came out officially on Smashwords.com yesterday, and is now available on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble for the Nook! But before you buy, next week is The Jester’s Apprentice giveaway.

From August 7-14 (so Sunday to Sunday), you can win a copy right here! Every day next week, I’ll post a super easy trivia question (with cheats!) based on something related to the book. You won’t be able to get the answers wrong, I promise!

Everyone who enters and answers the question correctly, wins. Easy-peasy. The only real rule is one win per person. You’ll get a chance to choose what format you want: Kindle (.mobi), EPUB (for Nook, Sony, and most other e-readers and apps), or PDF.

Pretty painless but a little more fun than just filling out a form. So again, The Jester’s Apprentice Giveaway Week starts this Sunday with a sneak peek at the first chapter of the book and runs through the following Sunday. Spread the word and come by yourself to win!

The Jester’s Apprentice Cover & Release Info

So I know I’ve had spatterings of information about my upcoming mystery novel, The Jester’s Apprentice, but today I’m pleased to both reveal the cover and offer release details. First things first. The cover. La voila!

Now about the release. Jester’s will be available on Amazon Kindle and Smashwords on or around August 5 (uploading time and all that). I’m planning an official giveaway, and I’ll post the specifics closer to the release date. I can’t tell you how excited I am to get this out into the world! I’m working hard on making my final touches and I have to say I’m very pleased with how it’s turned out (and I’m critical of my work). So keep an eye out next week for more on how you can win your own ebook copy. I will tell you that you’ll have more than one shot!

As a kind of lead in to Jester’s, my debut mystery, Dead Locked, is still available free on Smashwords and will be until the end of this month!
