We are contacting authors who might wish to join us in FREE promotion by adding your eBook to our contest. We will list YOUR NAME, BOOK TITLE, and WEBSITE ADDRESS so readers can drool over the possibility of winning your book. We have contest promo buttons you can post on your site and link back to Hippie Chicks. This will direct your readers to the contest sign-up page.
All you have to do is contact us at hippiechicks68 @ gmail.com (minus the spaces) with the information in CAPS above. We will add your information to the Author Gift list on the contest page. We will send you the contest promo buttons to use on your site. At the end of the contest, you will be responsible for sending the lucky winner a digital copy of your book formatted to work with the Kindle.
You can give away a paper copy of your book, autographed if you like, or other gift your readers would appreciate. If you have any questions please email Hippie Chicks.
Why are we doing this, you ask? We are authors and industry professionals that desire to sell our books and services, simple as that. What better way to get noticed than to give something away!

THE WRITER'S QUEST
There must be a way to wear different hats.
Life's demands pull us this way and that.
The characters scream, 'write my scene not his!'
There's always a conflict resolved in sweet bliss.
Words to write down before they are lost.
Only a writer would realize their cost.
Each little word tells us the tale,
of heroes so special, the ultimate male.
These words can't be written in chaos or din.
The house must be quiet, the kids settled in.
Creating is never an easy affair.
It's dreaming and grasping words from thin air.
No one has said this craft would be easy.
No guarantees the words would be steamy.
Writing must be the ultimate high.
Why else would we work until sunrise,
struggle with commas, colons and ellipses,
de-was and de-had, and fix all those tenses.
Until our lines all flow like the wind.
It's amazing how well they all sound in the end.
When you've completed the polish and cutting,
you face the real truth of now submitting.
A stranger, not family, will see your pages.
The ones you've kept secret for ages and ages.
A book is a child, a babe new born.
It should never be handled roughly or torn.
Who is this person that says he can tell
that the words you created are ready to sell.
Such a decision must be very taxing.
It's only a stranger's opinion we're asking.
For in the end you accomplished your goal.
You gave birth to a story, a tale to be told.
Its crimson and gold, shines like a star.
A possession no one can take or discard.
It's yours my friend; your dream put in prose.
And nothing can tarnish the scent of that rose.
