Dear Readers and Authors:
We often get offers of free books related to this contest but we decided that we would buy all the books we chose so we could remain objective. We have no problem in receiving books from publishers but at this time feel uncomfortable receiving books from authors for this CONTEST. (author submissions are accepted otherwise).
We are opening up the July ebook contest which was inspired by Cece. Yep, we’re a little late this month. This contest asks for you, readers and authors, to nominate books to be reviewed. Jane and I will pick a number of books (probably around 2 each since time got away from us last month to start the process) to read and review. As seen by the previous contest, not all books are going to get good grades. We hope that doesn't scare you all away. Of course, if you really hate an author, you may want to nominate them in hopes that we send them a Dear Ja(y)ne letter. 😉
One hint on the nominating process. If you see alot of one type of book being nominated: i.e., paranormals, you are probably going to have a better chance of your recommendation being picked up if it is different. Jane and I both enjoy reading traditional regencies, contemporaries and historicals as well as paranormals.
If you a reader, spend all the space you need to tell us why we should read the book. Authors, you write for a living. Give us your best three to four sentence sale. You can include links to excerpts, your website, etc. We'll run this contest until July 14th. Bring on the recommendations.
The Two Ja(y)nes
