As many of you already know, I work for a brand new (launched in March this year!) small press - Lakewater Press. I'm one of the editors there, but I also dabble in every aspect of the business, from marketing and publicity to design and social media. That's what's so great about Lakewater: everyone is encouraged to be involved with a book from it's acquisition to months after its publication. And I love that. Everyone on the tiny team, including the authors, has something to offer, ideas and opportunities they might read about or stumble across, and information is shared. I feel very blessed to a part of this close-knit, friendly company.
But anyway, I digress. The press has so many exciting things going on right now, including fab opportunities for readers; because although incredibly author-friendly, Lakewater Press loves booklovers and books more than anything else. So, with plenty of week-long 99c/p deals going on regularly, Goodreads giveaways and opportunities for readers to get their hands on eARCs of their forthcoming books, they are currently running an amazing Facebook giveaway.
In the hope of connecting with more readers, the press are giving away a Kindle, a $50 Amazon voucher, and ALL of their ebooks! I mean, that's pretty amazing. All you have to do to enter is like their Facebook page and the post. Simple. Of course, they would also love you to share it and tag some friends to spread the love, but that's not a condition of entry. Here's the link, and I suggest getting over there quick before the contest ends on Monday!
And finally, they are building their street team. Lakeys will be offered so many wonderful things, from swag to exclusive material from Lakewater authors to sneaky peeks into forthcoming titles and so much more. In return all they ask for is a few RTs, shares and likes and some book and author love. Pretty cool, I think. Who wouldn't want free stuff?! So, if you're interested or know a bookworm who might be, just sign up here!
Overall, in this wobbly world of publishing right now, this is a fresh, positive face, and one that intends to evolve gradually and carefully, but having a bunch of fun in the process. I'd watch out for these guys (me!) if I were you! Check out their website to find out more about them!
