Please Support My 2017 WALK TO END ALZHEIMER'S:

My Mom
WALK ALERT: Hey, everybody! I'm participating in this year's Walk to End Alzheimer's and asking for your support. My mom, Pat, and my father-in-law, Jerry, both suffer from this brutal disease. The Walk to End Alzheimer's is my small way of fighting back.

Thanks to your generous donations, I've blown past my original fundraising goal of $500.00. I'm just a little short of the $1000.00 mark and would love to beat that, too.

Our local walk is NEXT WEEKEND on October 7th, 2017. Follow THIS LINK to donate now. You'll be taken to my Donation Page.

Please donate what you can to support the efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. Any amount is a good amount. Thank you for joining the fight!

GHOST STAR: Kindle Scout Campaign Update

https://kindlescout.amazon.com/p/K0R7BME788ZC 


My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has already nominated GHOST STAR for publication on Amazon. So far, so good -- at least as far as I can tell. 
 
Kindle Scout doesn't tell you how many actual nominations your book has received, but they do give you a little bit of info. With fifteen days left in the campaign, GHOST STAR has spent 169 hours on the "Hot and Trending" list and has received roughly 2.5k views on its page. I hope most of those views were also nominations!

For those who haven't nominated GHOST STAR and wouldn't mind doing so, please follow the link and vote today. It's free to vote and if my book is approved, you'll get a FREE Kindle copy. Thanks!

Call To Action: Please Nominate My Book for Publication by Amazon's Kindle Scout

Here are three steps you can follow to earn this author's undying gratitude:
  • Step One: Follow THIS LINK to Kindle Scout. 
  • Step Two: Log in to your Amazon account.
  • Step Three: Nominate Ghost Star, my new YA Sci-Fi novel, for publication by Amazon.
It's just that simple! Seriously though, I know this kind of stuff can be a pain, but, in this case, there really isn't much more to it than the steps I just listed.

It's free to vote and only costs a little bit of your time.

The Backstory: I recently completed the manuscript for Ghost Star and decided to give Amazon's Kindle Scout program a try. How it works is that you submit your previously unpublished novel and support materials--book cover, description, etc.--and, after a review, they assign you a "campaign."

My Kindle Scout campaign for Ghost Star will launch on August 26, 2017 12:00 AM EDT and end on September 25, 2017 12:00 AM EDT.

During that time frame, it's the author's job to get as many of his supporters to "nominate" the book for publication as possible. Here's why:
  
"The more nominations your book receives the more likely it will get the attention of our Kindle Scout team and be selected for publication."

Pretty straightforward, right?

The bottom line is that it would be really cool if you would nominate my book.

Thank you!
Roger

BONUS STEP:
  • Step Four: Ask your friends and family who might be up for this kind of thing to vote for Ghost Star, too. Thanks!
