The P'kaboo Share Contest is LIVE!

Inviting all friends and fen of P'kaboo and its authors to a share-extravaganza.

The contest works like this:

1) Go to this page

2) Click on one of the books to go to its feature page

3) If you click on the book's cover you can read a preview; optional.  Clearly people who have already read the books will know if they want to share them.

4)  Click the "FB SHARE" button!  (And while you're at it, the Tweet button and the Like button, and...)

-->  Every one of the 7 titles in the contest is trying to collect 50 shares - at 50 shares, the actual ebook becomes available for 100 (and only 100) free downloads.  

This means, everyone wins!  But once an ebook is open for downloading, you may want to hurry and get your copy - before they are gone.

The first round closes on 1 October - if a book hasn't made 50 shares by then, sorry...  no free downloads of that book.

Second round:

For those who love to write something:  
Submit a reader's review of any of the books you've read during the contest (you are of course not limited to one title!).  

3 lucky reviewing readers get to win an author-signed paperback copy of the book of their choice. 

P'kaboo has a Facebook Page

It's finally up.    Here it is:

And many many thanks to Marie, from Kvenna Rad, for putting content up there.  She's been busy as a bee, doing everything from updating the header pic and avatar to keeping the flow of ideas happening.  And Paul from Bookseeker Agency, our partner in UK, created the collage of titles that is now the page header.  (Image above)
We did already have the P'kaboo Book Club going, for quite a while.  That was once I had enough titles; before which there was (and is still) the Solar Wind fan club group.  I like groups better as people can interact better (and they do).
Well, those of you who enjoy Facebook, come and play!  :)  There are books to be discussed in the Book Club, and very cute posts on the Page.

Bookseeker Agency and Letterpress Cafe

Our partner in UK, Bookseeker Agency

A highly creative literary agency who visits lots of book events in Scotland.  Bookseeker is the agent through whom we acquired "Lupa" and "Naked in the Sea" by Marie Marshall; apart from which, he represents our books overseas and facilitates them being channelled into libraries, book stores, reading corners and events.  
Bookseeker and P'kaboo have in common that we both aim to launch new authors and bring new books to the reader.

Letterpress Cafe

This is a young establishment that prints very beautiful things on a genuine old letterpress machine.  The machine has been revived, partially by the inclusion of custom-created parts where spares were not available.  It works like a dream.
The owner, Bernhard "Irthling", is a highly successful graphic designer (and one of our book cover designers).  In conventional printing, often things take a wrong turn between the designer and the printer.  Not so at Letterpress Cafe, where the designer also takes care of the printing, to give his client exactly what is needed.

We wish Letterpress Cafe all the best success and will be making use of them!
