My First Century!

HEY YOU GUYS!  I  just noticed I have on hundred followers here on my blog!

I'm celebrating by:

1. Handing out virtual champagne - have a glass
2. Handing out virtual canapés and caviar - grab a plate
3. Giving away a free copy of my trilogy - THE NIGHT WATCHMAN EXPRESS

So, about that last one - here's the deal. I have the entire trilogy up in one Kindle  download at this point, but soon that's going to change. It's all  about word count, you  see: my trilogy approaches 150K words (for you non-writers, that means a Buttload) and it's too expensive to print as one book.

Therefore, I have to split it up into two parts to print, and so I'll be splitting it into two Kindle downloads.  The current trilogy is  a bit raw - it's gone through subsequent edits and  formats, but the story hasn't changed  a bit.

(Lesson learned - write  in printable chunks.)

In any case, leave a comment here, and I'll randomly select one person to  receive a copy of my trilogy. Hey, it's a good summer read, and a LONG one, as we now  know.

finally - I want to send out a heartfelt Thank You to  all my followers. You truly are the best.

Huh, weird. I could have sworn I was following this blog! O_o Anyway... that's great, Alison! Too bad I don't have Kindle, it sounds interesting. :) So yay, I'll grab some champagne and.. is it odd I've never had caviar? Oh well. *munches* Not bad.

Woohoo! Congrats on the 100 followers and good idea with dividing the MS into "printable chunks"

Congrats on 100 followers and thanks for the virtual champagne. I've only have champagne once and learned that if you buy the $4 bottle it will taste like 4 dollars. A good lesson learned. Congrats again!

I'm loving the virtual champagne! And I love following your blog. To the next 100 *raises glass*

Congrats, Alison! Good luck with your Kindle books. Lyn, you can download Kindle for PC or Mac off the Amazon kindle (Buy) page for free and then read Kindle books off your computer, even if you don't own a Kindle.( I have a Sony ereader and so I do Kindle books this way.)
Onto the next 100 followers, Alison. Keep up the great blogs!

Congrats on hitting the 100 mark! And I don't know where you keep finding the groovy backgrounds for the blog, but I think they add to the experience: come on in, see what interesting tidbits Alison's got for us today, and take a look around to see the new look. Nice!

P.S. I already bought the Kindle download, so please take me out of the drawing! I'm now waiting for the books in print - even though I'll finished the Kindle version by then, there's just something about holding/reading/fondling/owning an actual book. :)

PD Griffith is the winner of the Kindle version! PD, I'll be in touch....
