If I don't get submissions--or if I get more than 3 submissions in any given week--I'll hand-pick the titles myself, based on my mood at the moment I look at your book's page. Nothing more, nothing less. It's not a judgment call, it's just a whim of fancy. If I don't pick your book one week, it is definitely possible (but by no means guaranteed) that I'll include it the following week.
The point of this Friday feature is to get everyone involved exposure to a new audience so I'm trying to pick books that are different than what I usually write, different from what my regular readers might expect of me and different than the masses of eBooks out there in the bitstream.
To get in on this, you need to have an English-language book that is free (either for one-day-only on Friday or for any length of time that includes Friday of the week in question) and is located on a web site somewhere my readers can click through to and see a preview and/or download the complete file. Your "book" must be a completed work (no WIPs or partials please) and you must be the copyright owner to submit it. Any genre--including short stories, anthologies and/or poetry--is okay to submit.
To participate, please post a comment below and either provide me with your Smashwords book page's URL (from which I can get everything I need myself) *OR* provide:
- your book's title and your author/pen name
- your book's genre and approximate word count
- a URL to the book's page (please test it to be sure it works!)
You can make your book page URL clickable. Blogger will convert your HTML to a clickable link after your comment is posted. You'll need to fill in the CAPTCHA words just to see the preview or to get the comment posted, so please don't close the popup window until you've typed in the CAPTCHA words. Also, please only use one link per comment or you'll trigger my SPAM filters.
You can submit more than one book at a time by posting multiple comments if you like but remember, I'll only include 3 books per week and would prefer not to have all three from the same author.
Please be sure to follow @webbiegrrl on twitter so you'll get the auto-tweet on Friday when Networked Blogs feeds it through to twitter. Please RT the link to the blog post so that everyone mentioned benefits from the group effort of marketing.
Thanks for participating!
