I'm excited to announce that Haywood Street Press (the company I set up to publish and distribute Hallways in the Night) is doing a 20 book Giveaway through Goodreads. (Widget added to site soon)
I'm doing this to try and generate more exposure and increased discoverability for Hallways in the Night. Thus far, reader reception has been as good as I could have imagined (even better in some cases) so my thinking is that the more people who read the book the more likely it will increase the word of mouth exposure.
For those of you who have recommended the book after reading it, I cannot thank you enough. It's the ultimate compliment to a writer and the best long-term marketing and sales strategy. As those who know me or follow this blog, you'll know I did not do any pre-release publicity. Some might argue that was a mistake, but it was a by-product of focusing all my efforts on finishing, proofing and editing the book, which took a lot longer than I expected.
In addition to the Goodreads giveaway, I've also added Chapters 4 and 5 to the sample. What I like about these chapters is that they show how the story widens out and how other characters become involved in the novel after the confrontation between Dave and Remo in the parking lot.
If you're a member of Goodreads and found this blog through the giveaway, let me say welcome and good luck if you enter. If you're not a member of Goodreads it is a great site that brings readers together and will help you find some great books, reviews and fellow readers.
Any questions, please let me know. Best Regards as Always,
