The Romance Reviews Celebrates Two Years!


Dear authors,

The Romance Reviews (TRR) is two years old (and growing)!

To celebrate this awesome event, we’re having our SECOND ANNIVERSARY PARTY during the month of March! We’ll have another exciting game for readers, and some variations from the previous game, but all the fun activities are still geared toward providing exposure for your books as we put them in front of our readers. Again, the activities will take participants to author websites as they answer Q&A provided by authors and visit featured books!

Prizes include gift certificates, book giveaways and lots more! TRR is contributing the grand prize of $100 gift card, as well as other smaller prizes! Other details to be finalized as the event draws nearer.

DATE:  March 1 to 31, 2013

PARTICIPATION DETAILS:

Method # 1: Donate a book giveaway

One book giveaway = One Q&A

* Due to the anticipated overwhelming author contribution (as evidenced by our previous event) and for the proper running of the game and enjoyment of the players, we regret but we have to limit each author pen name to one book giveaway for Method #1.

How to donate? Check out How to Donate a Book Giveaway below.


Method # 2: Purchase a TRR 2nd Anniversary Party Ad Package worth 60 credits (limited slots)                                          (original price = $80, discount of 25%)

            $60 TRR 2nd Anniversary Party Ad Package entitles you to:
