Purpose: To promote my new book Song of the Ovulum and help Christian bookstores.
Time: From July 2 through July 16.
Activity: Buy Song of the Ovulum at a Christian Bookstore during that time period.
Prepare: Call your Christian bookstore at least two weeks in advance of July 2 and ask them to order Song of the Ovulum for you. Some bookstores won't do a verbal order by phone, so you might have to go in to order it.
Report: When you get the book, report to me by email where you bought it. I have created a Google map with markers where people are buying the book. Here is a link to the map - http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&ll=37.0625%2C-95.677068&spn=35.273162%2C86.572266&z=4&msid=206056862135761608404.0004a3e0f9ffaf5f2fe7d
Reward: If you email me a scanned copy of your receipt, (bryan (at) daviscrossing (dot) com) I will send you an autographed adhesive label to put in the book as well as a Song of the Ovulum bookmark. The label will have a graphic of the Song of the Ovulum cover on it.
Other Rewards: I will visit as many of the reported (with scanned receipt) bookstores as I can during my fall tour. If I get 15 or more books reported for a particular store, I will buy pizza for those 15+ buyers when I come. Since my tour is nationwide, I should be able to get to almost any store except for Alaska and Hawaii. I am not guaranteeing that I will be able to do this for every store that gets 15 or more books sold at the location. I am saying only that I will do my best, and it depends on how close the store is to my tour route. If I can't make it there, I will come up with an alternative reward.
If you don't have a Christian bookstore in the area, you will be able to order from a Christian bookstore online at a special price. It won't count toward the pizza deal, but you will still receive the autographed label if you email your receipt.
Here is a link to the Christian bookstore's online ordering page for those who have no Christian bookstore in their area - Click here When the blitz begins, that page will have special low pricing for the book.
