Hug-a-Horror-Writer… GIVEAWAY

 

It’s Hug-a-Horror-Writer Month!! Or at least that’s what I’ve been calling it… The Halloween season is a beautiful time for those who love all things dark and dreary, whether it’s a gore-fest of bloody exploding puppies, a quieter deeper creepier bent that crawls inside you and keeps you up at night, or a way to win a FREE BOOK just for giving a horror writer a hug!

tl;dr — Leave a review for a chance to WIN a FREE BOOK

The details: first, the book you can win. No one has the same TBR pile or even gets their fix in the same format, I get that. So the winner will get to choose not only WHICH book they would like to win among my titles, but which format they want (ebook, paperback, even audiobook in some cases). And all you have to do is share your thoughts on something you’ve already read!

So, how to enter to win? Easy! Leave a review and share it…

  1. Go to Amazon (this link will get you to all my books)
  2. Choose a book to review
  3. Give it some stars and a couple (or a lot) of words
  4. Share the book’s page on Facebook or Twitter (on the right side of the page you’ll see these icons  
  5. Include “i just reviewed” in your sharing post
  6. Tag me in the post (@kelliowenauthor on facebook, @kelli_owen on twitter) or otherwise let me know you’ve done this (via tweet, fb, email, however)
  7. Your name goes in the hat once for each review

While you can (and should) continue to review beyond the drawing because it’s nice and authors really do appreciate it, I do have to set a date to award a winner… how about Monday, Nov 13? That gives you three week(end)s to formulate your thoughts and set them free in the world.

Go. Review. Win.

And thank you in advance for the hugs… H a p p y   H a l l o w e e n ! ! 

Social Media | Buttercup of Doom ep 15

BODep15-socialmedia300Available FREE on: Project iRadioiTunesStitcherAndroidTune-In
This Week’s Rating: PG13 — buttercup ratings system info here

In this episode … I define and dissect social media— why we have it, how we use it, when to nuke it. I give a 101 on the various ways to advertise without spamming on the multitude of platforms, break down intention vs reality for the big three, look at the generational preferences, and have a thought or two on the red coffee cup.

(clarification note: the “at symbol” aka “@” is used for tagging people, rather than just “hashtagging” aka “#” ideas and general subjects)

Family & Friends | Buttercup of Doom ep 04

BOD-ep04-familyfriends300Now Available at Project iRadio!

In this episode … I read a small portion of Waiting Out Winter, where I use friends as character fodder, and then explain why and how and the voices behind it in the Kiddie Pool. I rant about family, friends & facebook, and offer a way to keep them all. And of course, I leave you with an up—in the form of male nudity in Hollywood, and some wisdom (from Nana this week). Oh yeah, and there’s mammoths. Don’t ask.

New Release: THE HATCH

hatch-400x600dpi72THE HATCH
(stand-alone sequel to “Waiting Out Winter”)

Nick Kontis and his remaining family members have survived winter—have outlived the threat of deadly infected flies—and are heading toward presumed safety. They quickly find all exit points blocked, the perimeter burned, and learn the flies were only the beginning, as Mother Nature has stepped in to correct mankind’s mistakes.

Her weapon of choice: spiders.

With thick webs covering the spring landscape, and lack of any communication leaving them on their own to guess whether or not the spiders are as lethal as the flies they’re eating, they make a new plan. Fleeing in a new direction they run into another party of survivors. And what was once a breakdown of society becomes an exercise in rebuilding.

They’ll need to find common ground and bond with the others, before winter arrives again. Before the spiders declare victory…
