WANTED! Reviews of my new book, Bread, for amazon.com. 

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU? I'll enter the names of all review writers in a drawing for a $60.00 gift certificate to the indie bookstore of your choice. The winner will be announced on Valentine's Day. If you don't win the certificate, you're still a winner because you'll have my gratitude, and I'll send lots of good vibes your way. 


WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME? I've heard that if an author has at least 50 mostly positive reviews, amazon will recommend his/her book to shoppers and browsers. I'd like that a lot. 

By the way, I'll accept reviews from your cats and dogs, too.
