FREE Friday!

That's not meant to be read like Free Willy! or anything. It's just Friday and that means that today is a day you can get something for FREE!!

My ebook, From the Query to the Call, to be exact.

You can get 5 entries. Here's how:
1. Leave a comment on this post.
2. Tweet about my ebook today.
3. And on Saturday.
4. And on Sunday (by midnight, please).
5. Leave me another comment on this post, telling me how many twitter entries you have, along with your twitter handle so I can follow you!

Use this to tweet: From the Query to the Call, an ebook by @elanaj comes out on Monday, Sept 14! Click here for all the details:

Yes, it's only 135 characters. You're all good.

That's it! If you tweet today and not tomorrow, you still get an entry for today. If you're going to be hosting another football party--oh, wait, that's me--and you forget tomorrow, tweet on Sunday. The book will be released on Monday, so tweets must be made by Sunday at midnight, MST. I'll be back here on Monday, before the release, to announce the winner.

That's the free stuff.

Not sure you want to buy the book? Um, dude, you do. But just in case you need some convincing, check out these posts.

Beth Revis's review.
My interview with Beth.

Christine Fonseca's review

Sandra Ulbrich-Almazan's review.

Abby Annis's review.

Robin McCormack's review.

Sara Tribble's review.

Today is also the last day of the Spread the Word campaign. If you have already participated in this, please email me at elana (at) and let me know so I can send you the discount code. It's not too late to participate! (Hey! That rhymes!) If you blog about it, tweet about it, Facebook about it--there's even a Facebook fan page--just email me and let me know. I've seen people do this already (THANK YOU!), but I'm not going to give out the code publicly. You must email me. So email me! I love email anyway. Who doesn't??

Oh, and Lisa and Laura--major contributors to From the Query to the Call--are hosting a similar contest like this on their blog. Check it out, because you can see a little taste of what you'll find in the ebook on their blog today.

Oh, and I have something special for the first 20 buyers of From the Query to the Call, coming up on Monday, September 14. So set your alarms if you need to!

Have a great weekend!

Hi :)
I Tweeted about your interview yesterday, does that count?
Wishing you all the best,

Christine Fonseca said...

I just tweeted about it! Luv you...LOVE this book!!!

Scott said...

Blog, Facebook, will Twit you, and comment here . . . oh, and Outlook reminder set for Monday, September 14. You know, I only do the Outlook reminder for very, very special authors - Gregory Maguire, Guy Gavriel Kay, Carol Goodman, and Elana Johnson. : )

Hi- here's my comment for my one entry. I'm out of town at a cabin in the mountains for the next for days and *gasp* will have no internet or cell phone access. I don't Tweet anyway but I'll email you abut the Facebook thing. Congrats on your book and Happy Friday.:)

Mim said...

This book sounds great. I do not tweet! (Gasp! Shocking I know!) But I'll make a mention of it in my blog post this weekend.

Good luck!

Teri said...

I'm another that doesn't tweet! Yikes! At least I'm commenting, right! Congrats!

Eric said...

This book sounds awesome, Elana. I'm not in on the twitter fun yet, nor do I have facebook, but I'll be more than happy to pimp your book on my blog. Good luck, I hope you have great success with this launch.

Lizzy Mason said...

I don't tweet, EJ, but I did just write a post on my blog! Can't wait to read it!

Kathryn Hupp-Harris said...

Football parties and a chance to get your e-book for free?


Tere Kirkland said...

I've read the reviews, and it sounds like you've got a future in the writing-book writing business. ;) I'm entering for my chance to win!

(also good to know how many of y'all don't tweet, either. Now I don't feel like such a caveman, lol.)

Windy said...

Love the book!

If Twitter would quit acting up on me, I'd tweet, but will get right on that!

L. T. Host said...

I also don't tweet, but I'm entering here! Excited for your e-book :)

Thanks for your comment last night... it was very touching, made me smile :)

Cindy R. Wilson said...

Oooh, I checked out Lisa and Laura's site and the comments you gave them on their query. Good stuff! Congrats on your books. Sounds like it would be sooo helpful to sooo many people. I am terrible with queries, so perhaps I need some help, too!

Casey Something said...

Yes! I loved Beth's review and interview. I'll check out the others.

I tweeted today. Hopefully I'll remember to tweet over the weekend as well. I'd love a copy!

Great marketing, Elana. You're doing awesome.

Elana Johnson said...

Hey guys! Man, I didn't realize how many people didn't tweet. BUT, if you don't, it's okay. If you mention it on your blog or facebook, you can get the Spread the Word discount... I'm just sayin'. It's $5 off--that is if you don't win for commenting here! Or at Lisa and Laura's blog.

:) Elana

And Scott, you made me cry. I've been bawling all morning anyway because of the assembly we had here at school for Patriot Day. So thanks a lot!!

I tweet-tweet-tweeted!


Stephanie McGee said...

Enjoy your weekend! Hope you can get some sleep between excitement over the release and the drama that will be the football game!

Unknown said...

Commenting now and will tweet it for sure! I love free!

Unknown said...

Okay, I became a Facebook fan of the book so I'm officially at 2 entries now! Thanks.

Hi Elana,

I just posted my review about your book and emailed you the link. Great job - really enjoyed it.

Eileen Astels Watson said...

I didn't even know you had this coming out. Congratulations, Elana!!

Wini said...

Hi Elana, thanks for the add! Wow, congrats on your new book, how exciting! Hope its a raging success. I loved reading sci fi and fantasy when I was young... and still love it actually. Wishing you all the best! Wini :)

dellgirl said...

Congratulations on the new book, wishing you all the best.

Thought that I’d stop by and say “Hello”, wishing you a Great Sunday!
Enjoy the rest of this weekend.

Woohoo I cannot wait to read this. I'm especially itching to get a hold of it since I'm going to be heading back into the query trenches come November!

I tweeted with a link tonight too!

Faith said...
