Join my evil marketing scheme...

Just when I thought I would hang up my writing hat for a while as I work towards my Irish exams, I find myself working on marketing.

Remember that fabulous book you've been meaning to buy? You know, Wings of Light... Oh yeah, that one. Well, I'm trying to get it into some stores near you.

A little trick that you could do to help me in this quest...

Call your local bookstore or library and ask if they have Wings of Light by Laura Bingham. When they say no, or offer to special order it for you, just say, "That's okay, I'll just order it from Amazon," and then hang up.

Here's the carrot for you, leave a post saying that you did this and you will be entered to win a $25 Amazon gift card. For each store or library you call, you get one entry.

And, we'll only give away $25 if we get at least 25 stores or libraries called by August 6. We'll use Random.org to choose the winner.

Alright, get your phones out and let's do this thing. It takes people like you to make things work. Thanks for your help.

I just tried to call Borders here in Ireland. Yep, there are five stores on the Emerald Isle. At least, there WERE. Unfortunately, I just found out that they all have closed. What a shame! So instead I called my local library. They know me well there. I asked them to buy *Wings of Light* before I told them I'd get it through Amazon! We'll see what happens! :) Good luck with your evil plan...mwah-ha-ha-ha!!
