Chocolate Cup Giveaways and a Review Drive!

Chocolate Cup Giveaways and a Review Drive!

Yikes, it is cold here! I think it is time for a CHOCOLATE CUP GIVEAWAY!  FOUR to be precise.
 
I also want to do a Review Drive, so maybe I can link the two. No, you DON’T have to leave a review to be entered for a chocolate cup, just comment/like below or join the newsletter. But I’ll tell you about the review thing, and if you can take the time to help out, that would be very much appreciated.
 
About…what, 6 months?…Amazon started inserting a page on e-reader devices that says “rate this book” and takes you to questions you answer about it. The problem is, that does NOT review the book. It provides data to Amazon that they, presumably, use to guide what they will try to sell to you. (No one really knows, but that seems to me the most likely thing they would do with data.)
 
Anyway, I have always preferred to have reviews grow organically, and not to do street teams and things like that, which is the common technique but which I have a lot of reticence toward. BUT…I’m not sure how to handle this siphoning off of reviews, because it really does make a big difference for so many things.
 
Anyway, if you have a chance to post a review on a book you’ve enjoyed, I would really appreciate it. I’m particularly focusing energy on ONCE UPON A ROSE, A WISH UPON JASMINE, and ALL FOR YOU, as those are the two series in which more books will come out this year. But any and all are appreciated.
 
A big THANK YOU to anyone who can take the time.
 
And for any and all of you, I am receiving urgent pleas to reduce the number of boxes in this house, between books, chocolate cups, and now Girl Scout cookies.
 
So I’m going to give away FOUR CUPS this week, one a day.

Just comment below or on Facebook to enter (and newsletter people are also automatically entered).
 
Here’s your question: How could is it where you are? Are you expecting snow this week?
 
Happy Chocolate!

    We had a little snow here in northernmost Germany (I’m living on a small island some kilometers off the coast), but it’s not really cold with temperatures around the freezing point.
    BTW – I loved the “unhealthy body”. More pics, please… 😉
    ( and some more of Mathieu maybe?)

    It’s a balmy 17 degrees in Chicago (ok, maybe more like 7 degrees with wind chill). It’s an absolute warmup! It’s been sunny and 2 super-warm layers have been working for me. Snow should cover 60% of Chicagoland tomorrow with less than an inch of accumulation, then make a return maybe Monday.

    Very cold here in my corner of North Carolina, temps getting into low 20s. Expecting several inches of snow starting at midnight! Snow Day tomorrow! My absolute favorite book of yours (so far) is A Wish Upon Jasmine ♡

    It takes a very special gift to make characters so real, the setting so vivid I can smell the lavender, roses and jasmine and even hear the bees buzzing, and the narrative so rich that the i forgo sleep for just another page until I’ve reached fin. The happy feeling when the characters get it… finally! resonates and makes me smile through meetings and pages and pages of ratios and financial figures. Thank you.
