Re: WARNING to people who use Amazon link to promote their book (14 replies, posted in TheNextBigWriter Premium)
Yes, the link should always stop after the ASIN number...and a recent change concerning ARC's. It is required that if a reader receives an ARC and then reviews, they must state they received a free copy.However, the wording has changed. Where it used to say...I received an advance reading copy in exchange for an honest review...It now must say...I received an advance reading copy in CONSIDERATION of an honest review. I have voluntarily reviewed this book. If a reader uses the word EXCHANGE, then Amazon can remove those reviews.
I didn't know what happiness was until I got married...and by then it was too late!
Thanks to everyone who nominated Chirp and for the good wishes. Once I get some Kindle Scout experience under my belt, maybe I'll be able to provide information to those who want to give it a try. At this point, there doesn't seem to be a formula to acceptance. I only stayed in "Hot and Trending" 35% of the time and received 967 nominations. There are authors who have gotten as many as 2400 nominations, (which would put them in H&T just about 100% of the thirty-day nominating period) and still didn't get a contract offer.
Thanks to everyone who read and critiqued the book here, and again to all my connections who took the time to nominate Chirp. It means the world to me.
Hip, hip, hooray!!!!!!!!!!!

BIG Texas congratulations, Randy!
Thanks, Tirzah! I've bookmarked the site.
That would be wonderful! Thanks so much. ~Ann
That's funny. I'd heard finer than frog's hair...but not the split four ways part.
Once a Texan, always a Texan! We can't help it. Other parts of the country don't always understand us. I forgot you were raised in the Lone Star.
Yeah, that Texas talk creeps into my writing all the time!
Hope everything is going well with you.
BIG Texas congratulations to all the finalists and good luck to each!
I've heard, you don't know diddly-squat about that but I've also heard piddly...and...I'd rather be stung to death by a bunch of piss-ants. I actually used that one in one of my books. Hope you had a nice weekend. Oh, and I looked up your town. You're nowhere near the Dallas area. I just visited my daughter in your neck of the woods...Austin area.
"I'm so tired I feel like I've been ironing all day in high heels and no brassiere."
"I swear when that woman dies, she'll be deader than everybody else."
"He made me so mad I could have spit square BB's."
Do you know some funny Texas quotes? Let's hear them.
