BookBuzzr Author Wins Grand Prize
Please take a moment to congratulate author Keith Remer who has won the first prize in the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. The title - 'The Hiding Place of Thunder' has all the hallmarks of being a best-seller (and perhaps even a Hollywood movie!)
CoverBuzzr Wins Accolade from Test Authors
We're still working on the beta-test version of CoverBuzzr (available on the home page of freado.com.) Book-lovers playing the game seem to be addicted. For example, the leading player (nicknamed 'scrapchik') has probably played the game over 2000 times in the last few weeks! The Kindle auction date ends on June 20th. You still have time to earn points and bid for the Kindle and various other books available on the site. Also, please note that points expire periodically. So if you've earned some points, please bid for something in the prizes section.
As an author, you will be interested to learn that authors using the book-memorization technology have been delighted with the concept. Here's what some of them are saying:
"What I find most attractive about CoverBuzzr is the creativeness aspect - going outside the box. I like the fact of the game and how it involves people in memorizing and matching - quite simple and getting the cover and next the message about the books."
- Daya Devi-Doolin, Author of The Only Way Out Is In:The Secrets Of The 14 Realms To Love, Happiness And Success!
"I like the idea of my book in front of people's faces."
- Chelle Cordero, Author of Hostage Heart
"What I find most attractive about CoverBuzzr with regard to marketing is the way you are getting cover recognition for authors subliminally, through playing an entertaining game!"
- J.P. Locke, Author of Saving Rachel
"Looks nice, good prizes, makes you very familiar with the book covers, very satisfying watching score rise, good short bursts of game."
- Victoria Twead, Author of Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools
And now for the top BookBuzzr books for the month of May 2010.
Congratulations to the winners.
