"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

But... wasn't there another contest?

Why, yes, there is.

For all of you who've bought your copy of MURDER ON THE HOOF, thank you. Thank you to the nth. I appreciate you all.

As many of you may know, Amazon reviews are not just a nice thing to have for a book. They have become a necessity. So many professional reviewers, contests, etc. want a book to have at least x number of Amazon reviews before they will consider a book for their own review/contest.

So I'm having a review contest. The winner will receive a Kindle Paperwhite. Because it's a fairly large prize, at least for ME to give out, I'm going to ask a little more than just answer a trivia question.

What do you have to do to win it?

Leave a review of MURDER ON THE HOOF on Amazon, and provide the link to that review in the comments section of this post. Some rules of the contest:

1. No, it does not have to be a 5-star, this-book-is-boffo review. I really want honest reviews, not back-patting, yes-men, kiss-up reviews.

2. I'd love to give a Kindle to everyone who leaves a review, but I'm going to have to make this an opportunity drawing.

3. Everyone will have 14 days from today (that's June 5th) to read the book, write a review, and send me the link.

4. I will select one name from the entries. The winner will be announced on June 6th. Let's not beat around the bush, yes?

P.S. ARE YOU THERE ERMA? is available for free today. You can get yours here - http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005YOL7JA
