Author C.J. West Giving Away A Kindle Fire A Month

cj 5-22It’s my pleasure to welcome author C.J. West here today to tell us about an exciting and fun contest he has planned for each month in 2012 involving his latest release, ADDICTED TO LOVE.

Here’s a brief synopsis of the book: How far would you go to preserve soul-consuming passion?
Wes Holiday sells his landscaping business and retreats to a quaint mountain town to heal after ending a ten year relationship with a woman he couldn’t bring himself to marry. In three weeks he is so captivated by a hair stylist that he deprives himself of food and sleep to be near her. When the local sheriff is murdered, Wes is recruited to keep the peace in the town his parents built, but he knows nothing about law enforcement and he’s struggling to understand how a woman he just met can dominate his every waking thought. Soon the idyllic town with a penchant for romance is rocked by a bizarre series of murders that defy explanation and it is up to Wes to stop a raging epidemic of violence before the entire town is destroyed. 

C.J. joins us now to tell about his intriguing contest.

Thank you, Mason for having me on your blog today. I’ve recently released my 6th novel, ADDICTED TO LOVE, and I’m excited to be promoting it this holiday season. 

My readers know that I love contests and that I really appreciate the way they spread the word about my work year after year. So, in 2012 I’m putting those things together in my biggest contest ever to thank my supporters.  

29I’m giving the majority of my marketing budget directly to my readership rather than paying for ads. Each month I’ll randomly draw a winner who will choose either a Kindle Fire or a gift certificate worth $200 to Amazon, B&N or an independent bookstore. 

To enter, simply help spread the word about my work by tweeting, sharing on Facebook, or sending an email. Anyone can enter by visiting the contest homepage here. Spreading the word is as easy as two clicks on the social media site of your choice or you can choose to get creative. 

For your readers who aren’t familiar with my work, I write creative suspense novels that each have a unique feel. I’ve written intense revenge stories, psychological and political intrigue and stories of spiritual redemption.

ADDICTED TO LOVE is about unrelenting passion, a connection with one special person that can’t be denied. Wes Holliday comes to Highland Falls and is struck by the way everyone in this remote town feels passion so strongly. Soon Wes is overcome by passion so intense that he can’t focus on his work. A bizarre series of murders strikes Highland Falls and it is up to Wes to save the town from a raging epidemic of violence.

I hope you’ll give ADDICTED TO LOVE a try and remember what it was like to fall deeply in love. 

C.J., thanks for sharing this amazing contest with us. ADDICTED TO LOVE sounds like a fun read and you’re sure to have people talking about it all year long.

Anyone already have a Kindle Fire? If so, tell us about it. If you were a winner in C.J.’s contest, would you select the Kindle Fire or a gift certificate? Sorry I’m still not around blogdom much these days, but thanks so much for stopping by.
