The Dating Game Launch Party!!!


It’s Friday, 2nd November and that means it’s finally here! The Dating Game Launch Party is now open!

The Dating Game is my second novel and in its honour, for a full week, until next Friday morning, 9th November, there will be daily competitions and fun blog posts. Plus the Great Kindle Ebook Giveaway raffle gives you the chance to win Kindle copies of 54 ebooks! (More details on the various authors and books to be won later in this post.) 

Plus, buy The Dating Game by 9th November and you will automatically be entered into a draw for £10 Amazon vouchers (or $15 USD or € 10).
You can buy The Dating Game at the following links:- http://amzn.to/RuSl7Y (UK) & http://amzn.to/WZQtZK It’s also available from Amazon.fr, .es, .it and .de

More info on the competitions shortly, but first let’s meet the girl without whom none of this would have been possible - Gill McFadden

 

Workaholic recruitment consultant, Gill McFadden, is sick of her friends trying to match-make for her. Up until now her love life has been a disaster and she’s going through a drier spell than the Sahara desert.
She realises she has to act, as work keeps piling up and at this rate she will have retired before she has time for a relationship.
Seeing an ad on a bus one day, she decides to visit Happy Ever After dating agency. She quickly discovers men are like buses. They all come along at once. Unsure what her type is, Gill decides to keep her options open. Soon she has problems juggling her social life as well as her work diary. Will she ever strike the right balance?
Before long she is experiencing laughs, lust and… could it be love? But like everything in Gill’s life, nothing is straightforward and she ends up wondering exactly who she can trust.

So, back to the competitions and the raffle.  

To be entered into the draw for Amazon vouchers, simply send your Amazon invoice, as proof of purchase of The Dating Game to soozbuch@gmail.com (deleting any confidential data, eg address info) but leaving plain to see, the book title, order number and date purchased. 

Each day from Saturday there will be a competition where the winner of that day’s competition can also earn an entry into the Amazon voucher draw. 

Now, I’m almost as excited at this next part, as I am about launching my second novel (OK, not quite, but nearly!) The Great Kindle Ebook Giveaway Raffle. More than 45 authors have kindly donated Kindle copies of their books and we have 54 books to give away. Simply enter the raffle below. There are several ways you can enter and please feel free to enter by more than one method. The more entries you have, the better chance you have of winning!

So without further ado, enter the raffle here.

Tune in on Saturday for the first daily blog post competition!! Feel free to invite all your friends!

Enjoy The Dating Game and welcome to the party!
