ANOTHER UPDATE May 29th:
Thank you to everyone who contacted me about ARCs. I really appreciate the enthusiasm from readers, and will probably do this kind of thing again if I have ARCs and/or extra books. Stay tuned and watch this space
I have, at this point, contacted everyone to whom I can send books. If you haven't received an email, I wasn't able to send you a book. However...
I will be participating in a few giveaways, and will keep you all updated where I'll be. I have a couple coming up on release day at Fresh Fiction
and Mystery Lover's Kitchen
, BOTH with giveaways, as well as other places, so enter and keep your fingers crossed!
: I expected I'd get lots of requests, but I have been swamped by lovely readers wanting to review Tempest in a Teapot
and Muffin But Murder
. I have a limited number, and have begun mailing them out, but have not contacted everyone to whom I am sending a book yet. I have so many wonderful requests
that I am going to reserve a couple of copies and from those to whom I can't send out a book, I'll do a random draw or two. Or three.
So please be patient with me, as I sort out all the requests over the next week.
From time to time authors are sent gifties from their editor... boxes of delights that we are free to do with whatsoever we will. Last week I received a heavyish box from the UPS gal. It held some large print copies of my Vintage Kitchen Mystery books, but mostly, it held Advanced Review Copies (aka ARCs) of Tempest in a Teapot
(June 3rd, 2014) and Muffin But Murder
(July 1st, 2014)!
There are a LOT of copies.
So... I am looking for readers who also
review, or readers who would like
to review... or, well, readers
. I'll be frank; I'm looking to publicize my books. If you like the novels, I'd love you to review it/them, share your review, and/or talk about it on social media.
Here's what I'm doing.
If you would like a copy of one or both, I'd love
to hear from you. From past experience I know I will receive a fair amount of letters requesting a copy, and I'll have to narrow it down somehow, so it would interest me to know what copy you want, and why you want it. OR if you're a reviewer, you can tell me who you review for and send me a link to a review you're proud of. I'm always interested in reading reviews of mystery novels, doesn't have to be cozy!! I'll be choosing a few folks from every category.
Just for the fun of it, I took pics of the ARCs, some with my cat, Poodle, who seems bored by the whole affair, though he was purring non-stop.
So, email me at: victoria (at) victoriahamiltonmysteries (dot) com and let me know if you'd like one or both, and why. Do you just love
cozy mysteries? Do you read and then pass on all of your books? Do you review for a blog, or on Amazon? If so, send me a link; I do love reading reviews!! I won't be able to send books to everyone, but I look forward to sending some out, maybe to you! I'll let you know if I'm sending one and ask for your snail mail address then.
Please feel free to SHARE
this post with anyone you think may be interested!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
