Introducing Riptide Publishing

I try not to do too much promotional stuff here, as this is a place to learn about books and my opinions on them (and share yours, if you'd like!). But some authors I really enjoy and respect have created a publishing company in order to right some wrongs (or add another list on their long list of things to keep them occupied). The great thing is that the authors and the readers will benefit from this, as far as I can tell. Plus, the cover images are all pretty great (of course, some tastes do vary, but they are really well done) and their author line up is rather impressive.

So they are having a ribbon cutting at Amara's Place. You can also find out their full list of festivies, giveaways, and such on their website. Also, I may just lure an author or two to visit later this year. Below is a list of the festivities that are beginning in October. (And now back to your regular entertainment.)

Blog Tour Contest - How would you like to start 2012 reading all the great Riptide titles on a brand new iPad? It could very well happen and here’s how.

Check out our blog tour schedule every day between October 1 and December 31. Visit the sites where our authors are guest blogging or being interviewed, and leave a comment. It’s as easy as that.

Each comment earns you one entry in the grand prize drawing for an iPad. Other prizes are a Nook and a Kindle.

To keep things interesting, there will be tons of prizes along the way. Each stop includes prizes of our author’s backlist books, author and Riptide swag and gift certificates galore.

Win Free Books for a Year - Starting October 1, our web store will be open for pre-orders. For each book pre-ordered directly through our site, readers receive one entry into a drawing to win free books for a year! There are second and third prizes, too:

  • First Prize is one free copy of every single ebook Riptide releases in 2012!
  • Second Prize is one free copy of every single ebook Riptide releases between January 1 and June 30, 2012!
  • Third Prize is one free copy of every single ebook Riptide releases between January 1 and March 31, 2012!

That's a lot of free books! We'll draw winners at random right after the New Year, so even books pre-ordered in December will earn entries into the contest. And even those who don't win still get a nifty bonus: pre-ordered books are available for download two full days before their official sale date! Bonus Bucks (http://riptidepublishing.com/faq#t8n25) are earned on every pre-order you place.
