"Eye of the Beholder" eBook Giveaway

I’m playing/ experimenting with all the promotion thingamabobers over on Amazon as I learn about this whole ebook publishing gig.

So, I’ve made an Amazon giveaway for my ebook, “Eye of the Beholder and other stories”. This is a little different than the free book promotion I ran when I first published the collection. In that case, Amazon let me set the price to free for a limited period, and anyone who wanted it could download it without cost.

The giveaway has a limited number of copies available. Five copies in this case, and I paid for them. Anyone who wants one enters and has a 1 in 100 chance to win. So, more of a lottery situation. Sounds fun, and worth a go, so here we are. If it goes well, I’ll run another giveaway next week for “Love Thy Enemy/ The Way Home”.

Here is the link to enter the giveaway for “Eye of the Beholder and other stories”.

Free to Good Home – Mini Soft Fabric Colors Book

While making some new Mini Soft Fabric Books for my Etsy Shop I made an “oops”. While trimming a thread, I accidentally cut into the blue page of an almost done mini colors book. While it wouldn’t have been impossible to take the book apart and replace the blue page with a new one, it would have been a lot more work and headache than to just make a new book from scratch. I decided I didn’t want to remake the whole book.
The same page also got a snag on the fabric somewhere alone the way that left a tiny pin point hole when trimmed up.
I did sew the approximately 1/4 inch cut closed by hand, but didn’t do anything to the snag hole – the needle would leave more holes than the original snag, so it seemed silly to stitch it. This photo points out the flaws:

The little fabric colors book isn’t up to my standards enough to sell in my shop. The rest of the book is in great shape, and I hope someone out there will be interested in having it, even if it has a little ‘oops’ factor. I’m offering it to the first person to request it. I’ll pay shipping – even international. I don’t recommend anyone leaving personal information, like an address, in the comments section here, so I ask that you send your request to me privately by clicking “contact this seller” in my Karabu Patchwork Creations Etsy Shop.
Hopefully this little book can find a loving home.
My kids (who normally get my ‘oops’ projects) already have a mini fabric colors book. I haven’t done a giveaway for awhile now, so I think my mistake was really a reminder that it’s time to have one!
