“I want Barefoot Season” Video Contest!

Other Bookish Posts

barefoot-video-contestHow would you like to win an advanced reading copy of BAREFOOT SEASON… PLUS a $300 Amazon gift card?

BAREFOOT SEASON(April 2011) is the emotional story of former best friends who must reunite in order to save the inn they both love. It’s witty, emotional, deeply personal, and has a no-easy-win conflict that readers can dig their teeth into. Plus, of course, a happy ending that will leave you feeling good about the world.

Here’s how to enter:

· Post a video to YouTube no later than February 28 titled “Susan Mallery, I Want Barefoot Season.” (That must be the title!)

· Email the video link to jenel (at) susanmallery (dot) com

The video should be no longer than one minute long and must be set to be viewable by the public. Susan may share the videos on her Facebook page, in the Susan Mallery app for iPhone and Android, and/or on her website. What she’s looking for is a heartfelt message. Why should she send an autographed copy of Barefoot Season to you? (The winner will also receive a $300 Amazon gift card.)


Don’t know what to say? Here are a few prompts to get you started. You don’t have to use any of these, though. Feel free to be creative.

“Susan Mallery, I want to read BAREFOOT SEASON because I loved [your favorite Susan Mallery title or series]…”

“Susan Mallery, I hope you’ll pick me to win an advanced copy of BAREFOOT SEASON because I belong to a book club, and we love books that…”

“I’m really excited to read BAREFOOT SEASON by Susan Mallery because…”

“It’s been a tough year for me, and I need the pick-me-up of a feel-good book like BAREFOOT SEASON by Susan Mallery…”

A team of soft-hearted book bloggers (including yours truly) will select the most heartfelt video on March 1, and the winner will be notified by email and at www.facebook.com/susanmallery. The contest is open internationally.

    JESS! How are you, dear? I’ve kind of went a little AWOL there for a while, but I found my way back to book blogging eventually. It was sort of inevitable, I guess. Anyway, I’m just checking in with my favorite book bloggers to say hi and ooh and awe over everyone’s new posts and whatnot. Hope everything’s good with you! Your blog is as perfect as ever :)

    Oooh, I always draw a blank at contests like this…feel like I need to invent a tragedy of some kind.  Plus I suppose video of me on a beach isn’t going to win any votes from Northern bloggers this time of year ;) As much as I’d love to enter I got the galley off NetGalley…VERY excited to read it. It’s my first Susan Mallory!

       Sara, Thanks for requesting BAREFOOT SEASON from Net Galley. I hope you’ll love it! On the contest, though, don’t forget that part of the prize is also a $300 Amazon gift card. If you’re having a hard time thinking of what to say in the video, check out the prompts that I’ve included on the Contest page inside the Members Only section at http://www.susanmallery.com. They’re a few ideas to get you started. Hope to see you soon!
