The Italian Sister - needs your help!

The Italian Sister

Dear Friends and Book Worms,

My new (and fourth) novel, The Italian Sister, is on its homestretch. This time, I have the opportunity to win a publishing contract through the Kindle Scout program. This is a contest, organized by Amazon, where readers have an input on which books get published. It's a new concept and it sounds exciting to me. The first step in the process is to get enough readers to nominate a book. Although this is not the only criteria for having the manuscript accepted, it is an important first prerequisite.

And this is where you come in. You can help me get enough votes. It's very simple and it only takes a few seconds of your time. Click the link below, which will take you to my Kindle Scout campaign page, where you'll find a short description of the book, an excerpt, a brief bio, and a few questions and answers, and the important NOMINATE button. This page will be up for 30 days, starting ??

Please click the NOMINATE button - but only once. If you click again, it will undo the nomination. This is of course to prevent some overly enthusiastic supporters from clicking it repeatedly and give the book an unfair advantage.

You will also get something for your help. If The Italian Sister is published through the Kindle Scout program, you'll get a free Kindle copy!

And now, here is the link:
After nominating the book, you can continue to help me by spreading the word to your friends and share my announcements and reminders on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.

The competition on Kindle Scout is fierce, so I need all the help I can get. Thank you in advance for your support. It really means a lot to me.


  1. Best of luck with this Christa. It says I have to live in the US to nominate. I did click on it. Hope it counts. The excerpt is great!

    1. Thanks, Darlene. Unfortunately, I found out too late that you have to live in the US to nominate. But thank you very much for trying.

    2. Actually, I just discovered you have to have an account with and use that email address. Then it works.

    3. I meant, of course, "IF you have an account with"
