My newest novel, The Standout, needs your nomination on Kindle Scout.
What’s Kindle Scout, you might ask. Why do I need to nominate your book?
Kindle Scout is a new Amazon program where readers get a say in which books get published. If my book is chosen I’ll receive, among other things, featured Amazon marketing. This would be a dream-come-true, because I am always trying to reach new readers, but doing so gets harder every day.
So to raise awareness of The Standout and my Kindle Scout campaign, I’m hosting this giveaway. Please click through and nominate The Standout! Nominating books is quick, free, and you won’t get SPAM. Plus, if it gets published by Kindle Press, in a few weeks you’ll get a free copy of The Standout! While you’re on Kindle Scout, you can read an excerpt of The Standout, and/or nominate other books too. But be sure to come back and enter the giveaway!
Thanks so much! And please, if you’re feeling REALLY generous, share this with other readers, friends, and family. I will be forever grateful!
First Robin gets the email with its simple demand: dump your fiancé or else. Then someone puts up the slanderous Rotten Robin Website that threatens to crush her chances to win The Standout, a ballet-themed, fashion reality show. Surrounded by backstabbing co-contestants and haunted by mysterious ghosts from her past, Robin can’t trust anyone, including herself.

Laurel teaches English and Creative Writing in Minneapolis, where she tries to stay warm, hang out with her husband and two chatty children, and find the time to write. Her other novels are the award-winningFollowing My Toes and Starring in the Movie of My Life.
You can find Laurel on Twitter but she needs to work on sending clever Tweets. A better idea is to follow her blog at www.laurelosterkamp.blogspot.com.
