loveahappyending.com


This week, on Wednesday 29th June, sees the launch of a new interactive website where authors and readers come together to celebrate books and reading.

What is loveahappyending.com?
….. a website to help promote new Authors and the formal launch is on 29 June 2011. Readers will be invited to take part in the ‘launch giveaways promotion’ and that is your chance to become a Feature Reader by winning a free book so you can do your first review!

This is what loveahappyending.com says about its featured authors -
loveahappyending.com authors are here to bring you novels you will want to curl up with on the sofa in winter, or read beneath that shady tree on your summer vacation. You may laugh, you may cry, but when you turn the last page it will remind you why you ‘love a happy ending‘. Positive, uplifting and feel good – a tonic!

And this is what it says about readers -
Welcome to all loveahappyending.com readers! We want readers to take an active part in providing feedback to our new authors, as they launch themselves into the world of publishing.

Appear in the ‘Review Chair‘ and loveahappyending.com author Janice Horton will interview for your thoughts on what you have read and give everyone a little bit of background information about YOU. Why? Because our Readers are equally as important to us as our Authors.

There will be giveaways and special offers - all aimed at giving our readers the opportunity to follow these new authors, support their work and grow our little community!

We also want to offer our group of writers the chance to ask YOU, the reader, the questions that will help them write the stories you want to read.

Readers can become Feature Readers or Associate Readers linked to one or several authors.

What is a ‘Feature’ Reader?
loveahappyending.com  says -
….. someone who loves reading books and would like the opportunity to really make a difference to a new Author’s career.

What is an ‘Associate’ Reader’
loveahappyending.com says -
….. a Feature Reader who actively supports loveahappyending.com’s Authors by spreading the word using social media, review websites (Goodreads, Amazon etc) and maybe their own blogs. Actively telling other people about our exciting new Authors and how much they enjoyed reading their books. If you see a good website and think it should feature one of our Authors, suggest it to them! You could also support individual Author’s websites to give encouragement and feedback. Our blog will tell you what our Authors are doing and when they have promotional events. You can Twitter and Facebook links to loveahappyending.com to help us increase exposure for our Authors.

All very exciting isn’t it. If you want to find out more about this exciting new project why don’t you pop along to http://loveahappyending.com/ on Wednesday 29th June and take part in the fun.

Oh, and don’t forget to enter the competition for a chance to win a free copy of the books on offer. Post a comment on my blog for a chance to win one of my books, but don’t do it before Wednesday or it won’t count. I’ll post a copy of the rules of the competition on Tuesday night so you’ll be all ready to go on Wednesday. In the meantime check out http://loveahappyending.com/ it’s a fabulous site.


NB - Some people have been having trouble leaving comments on Blogger sites. If this happens to you there is an easy fix. When you are taken to the Google account sign in page make sure that the ‘Stay signed in’ box does not have a tick in it. If it does, remove the tick.

Great post Chris and I'll be there to see you all on Wednesday. Good luck with the official launch!

Sounds like a great initiative Chris (and Janice). Putting the stress as much on readers as authors is important - I hope both come flocking. Good luck with the launch.

Hi Chris - great post!

As Review Chair editor, I'm so looking forward to meeting the readers and chatting to them in The Review Chair on loveahappyending.com!

Readers rule!
