Congratulations to Heidi Angell! Your book has been tweeted, shared on Pinterest, added to my Goodreads TBR for the event, and shared on Facebook.

PITCH your book in the comments. Put your LINK in the Rafflecopter entry form. Tell me why you think I'll like it, why I should check it out, and a little about the story. DO NOT give me a synopsis. I can get that from Amazon. Make it personal or make it funny. I care not. I'll be grabbing a sample of every book pitched and go from there.

If you don't see your name and book in the link list above, you did something wrong. Try again!

Please specify if you're entering as an author, a reader, or both. Author only entries will be removed before a winner is chosen.

IF you have a pre-order, please upload a SAMPLE to Google Drive and give people with the link permission to view. Put that link in the Rafflecopter form.

I strongly encourage you to check out the works of your fellow Indie authors. Chat in the comments, talk each other up, make friends!

Book reviewers! You're welcome to play along, too! Meet and greet authors. Get new books to read and review. It only works if we all work together.

**Kindly remember, there's no guarantee your book will be reviewed by me. You will get a purchase if your sample interests me, and I'll try my best to read it. But if I find I can't give it more than 2 stars, I won't write the review. I've had a few I couldn't finish and it led to me not giving a review.**

Now it's time to announce the winners from yesterday's giveaway!

I look forward to your pitches today!

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!



  1. This is so much fun!

    Mordant, picaresque and unapologetic, Jurgen Heuer and Enid Krause are bound to clash. She won't hold his sternum in her hands; he refuses to romanticize a love affair that was anything but. Death really sucks.


    100% Zombie free post mortem romance with happy ending.

    1. A.B. Zombie free post Mmrtem romance? Love the play on words!

    2. She won't hold his sternum in her hands...snort....love it.

    3. She's his mortician. She used to know him. He dumped her twenty years before. Now she's stuck with his mortal remains, and she's kind of annoyed.

    4. I CAN'T WAIT to get into this sample. Headed there now :) Love this conversation. BEAUTIFUL pitch, A.B!

    5. Thanks, Jo. I learned to pitch from #pitmad competitions. Month's later, I'm still discovering new things about HEUER, what the book is about, and, most importantly to me, what he really, really means.

    6. I tried to comment on your pitch yesterday, A.b. Funkhauser, but the comments were closed. So let me just say here and now... what a premise. Love your pitches.
      In gratitude,
      Marissa xo

    7. Thank you so much. And congrats on winning! Good on ya!

  2. Woohoo!! Thanks so much for picking me Jo! I am sure that you will enjoy Elements of a Broken Mind! Congrats Layla on winning Wonderwall! And thank you Elizabeth Kirk for the neat giveaway for today!

    Have a wonderful day all!

    1. Congrats to you chickangell. Winning's wunnerful!

    2. Congratulations, Chick :) You're such a wonderful part of this event, and I love your comments all year round :)

    3. Congratulations, Chickangell! I'm digging Jo's choices! Samples are overflowing on my kindle.

      In gratitude,
      Marissa xo

    4. Thanks everyone! Marissa, I feel the same way! So many great entries this year!

  3. Hey Jo! Thanks for the opportunity to pitch.

    An unassuming librarian risks losing more than just her glasses in this Indy styled mystery saga, as her cursed gem sends her back in time once more to battle the maniac obsessed with her.
    A curse tightens around Sophia Marcil’s pretty little finger in the form of an engagement ring. When it's slipped on her finger, she slips through time. Armed with only her cursed sapphire & knowledge of the past, Sophia struggles to prevent the deaths of those she loves, returning to her present-day life in Ireland to face the one who loves her, and the one who hates her, but could they be the same man?

    CURSE OF THE PURPLE DELHI SAPPHIRE is a mystery with time travel set in modern-day Ireland as well as the roaring 20’s.

    1. If you like the roaring 20's Rachael, check out Miss Fisher's Mysteries on PBS. It's the 20's, she's got lots of money, fab clothes and a great car. And, she gets into all kinds of trouble!

    2. I'm a sucker for the 20's, Rachael. Welcome to the madness :) Curses = engagement rings? Okay, I can get behind that. LOL! Can't wait to see what you've done with the premise. Thank you for the pitch, and I hope you have a rocking good time!

    3. Great pitch, Rachael. I love Diana Gabaldon, so time travel is a big hit over here.

      In gratitude,

  4. Never heard of many of these titles, but sounds like you got a lot of great pitches this year! I need something new to read to get me out of my reading rut, so I'll have to take a look at some of the samples on Amazon.

    1. HEUER released in April 2015 Heather, so he (and I) are brand new. I've been writing for about five years now. On my fifth script with a second novel due out in February. I'm kinda on fire, as it were.

    2. Right, Heather? There are so many excellent ones. Not sure how I'll keep it to 12, but I know I must :( Great span of genres up there. I look forward to seeing what you choose :)

  5. Thank you, Elizabeth and Jo, for the giveaways!

  6. Just dropped in to say congrats to all the winners so far. There are tons of really awesome pitches here. Decisions, decisions.
