Giveaway #1

Welcome to the newly-redesigned website! I hope you’ll take a look around, pick up some of my work you may not have read yet and have fun! Under the “Contact” part of the menu, you’ll find the chat room, which will be open all day long. Tonight, we’ll be having Brandon Stumpf, who stars in THE FIXER as Lawson, swing by to answer questions about the series and the role, so please be sure to catch that!

In the meantime, let’s get the first giveaway going! From my good friends at Variance Publishing, we’ll start the day on an apocalyptic note with two great reads from their catalog. How about a hardcover of the new thriller from bestselling author Steve Savile, SILVER – along with a paperback from bestselling author Jeremy Robinson, ANTARKTOS RISING.

Interested? Well, here’s all you have to do:

  • 1. If you’re on Twitter, type “Free giveaways all day long at Jon F. Merz’s new website #books #ebooks #writer” & then come back here and leave me a comment below so I know you put out the tweet.
  • 2. If you’re on Facebook, type a status update that reads: “Free giveaways all day long at author Jon F. Merz’s new website & join his fan page here on Facebook” & then come back here and post a comment letting me know you did this.
  • 3. Not on Facebook or Twitter? How about putting a link from your website to this one? Once you do, post a comment to let me know what site you’ve linked to mine.
  • 4. No website? Are you on any forums or bulletin boards? If so, start a new thread about the official launch and direct everyone to come here using this link: and then post a comment below letting me know what board you posted to.
  • 5. Not on any boards? Email your friends! Send them a quick email about today’s launch and invite them to swing by – BCC me on it (use the email address jonfmerz AT gmail DOT com) so I can see how many people you told about this site and then chime in with a comment below letting me know what you did.

Doing any of these will automatically enter you into the first giveaway! Just be sure to comment below so I know what’s going on. I need to be able to track these efforts at spreading the word about my site and my work. I’ll draw the first name shortly after 12pm noon EST!

Have fun!
