The random musings of Kate Grace
Over last weekend we had a bit of a contest that started with a half-sarcastic post I put on my personal wall on Facebook, which snowballed to an impromptu contest giving away two copies of the Burden of the Soul manuscript to fans of the A Bit of Grace LLC Facebook page (seriously… go over and Like it right now because there will be more contests and the only way to know about them is to get that feed).
On Monday the manuscript was going back (yet again) to the editor and our wonderful proofreaders for final reviews before we head into interior production and layout of the book. So what the hell! Why not pick two fans to get a super sneak peek of what’s coming. So we asked fans to state their case and tell us why they should be chosen. Two were selected and Brenna was one of them… specifically for cracking us up! Part of her entry:
If I’m not chosen as one of the final two Beta Readers, I may well explode. Yes, I’ll explode, and bits o’ Brenna will fly across my neighborhood, and disturb the sanity and serenity of its denizens.
How can you say no to that?! So we said yes, and on Monday afternoon the Burden of the Soul manuscript was emailed to Brenna (and our other winner… but more on that later). Imagine our surprise when, on Tuesday morning, word got back to us that Brenna had already finished reading it. Let me point out that Burden of the Soul is not a novella or in any way small. It’s a beast.
After getting some much-deserved sleep, Brenna was nice enough to share with us what she thought.
Thanks, Brenna! We’re humbled and thrilled you enjoyed it so much! Brenna’s been bit by the bug and has already entered in our Cover Photo Contest giveaway, so seriously… get over to Facebook and become a fan of A Bit of Grace LLC’s page so you can hear about the scheduled (and sure-to-come impromptu) contests through July!
