Top three nominated and fingers crossed for those in the waiting room!

It's my birthday today!  For my birthday, my page views went over 2k.  This is certainly my most successful campaign so far.

Also for my birthday, all my eBooks are $.99.

I love birthdays!

Hi all - super new to this - my book THE LOST SPY is on Kindle Scout - I'd love to be part of the nomination list and nominate other authors- as well as to make some new writer friends.  And Lincoln Cole - your Kindle Scout book has been amazing. So thanks!
Here's my link -- and I'm assuming the priority are those who have few days left. Is that correct?

Hehe, yep, we were just being goofy and eating invisible cookies. Anything to pass the time in the waiting room!

Haha! I'm having anxiety already, I can't imagine how bad it will be once I'm in the waiting room! I think I need more than one bottle of wine!!!  :P

Yes. Steve keeps his list updated daily, and nominations go to those at the top (nearing the ends of their campaigns).

Scout virgin here.

Like Nikki Landis, I also found Lincoln Cole's book very helpful. Thanks, Lincoln.

A question: Since the kickoff of my campaign for my suspense thriller Instrument of the Devil, I've recd several comments at my website that seem a little fishy, offering high, but vague, praise and encouraging me to visit their links.

Back in the dark ages of snail mail submissions to agents, I used to receive solicitations from "agents" offering their services that gave off a similar fishy aroma, including misspellings and dodgy grammar. These new contacts are more polished, but still make me wonder.

Have others in the Scout nomination process recd contacts like this?

Basically everyone is solicited like this. For the most part I would just steer clear or investigate their offerings. I had one offer to be an agent to represent me to Amazon after getting picked lol. I'm like "so you did nothing  to help me but now that they accepted me I get to pay you?" lol

Thanks, Lincoln. That's what I figured, but being new to the world of e-pubbing, I wanted to check.

Did that agent offer you a good deal on a really nice bridge, too?

Hello all! You're invited to my all day event today. There's NO OBLIGATION but I got together with 10 other Indie authors and we are doing an all day Facebook event. If nothing else, come join me in the lounge, say hi, grab a beer or glass of wine, and let's enjoy a fun Saturday.

Just FYI .... our little book we put out is a compilation for charity. Would LOVE to have a chance to chat with you all!!!  :P

I may, however, drink all the wine.  ;)

Happy Birthday, Julianne! And many happy returns, as they say in the UK (but you probably know that  8)).

Thanks for the nomination! You are running a stellar campaign, and I wish you a staggeringly large amount of sales.
