To promote the new edition of BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN (with more romance and bonus scenes!) and to give fans of the Spellbound series a chance to read the revised version without having to buy a new copy, I have decided to offer it as a free download at Story Cartel for a limited time.

Readers who sign up at Story Cartel to receive the free eBook will also be entered into a random drawing to win a $10 Amazon gift card, IF they post an honest review on places like Amazon or goodreads. The reviews help authors to market their books and also give them valuable feedback to improve their writing.

Sounds pretty awesome, right? Free book + Review = Gift card

Plus, it will give fans of the series a chance to help promote a beloved novel. A win-win if you ask me.

A word of warning…BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN (Part One) does end with a major cliffhanger, so if you hate those, then you might want to skip the free download. However, on the plus side, the sequel SHATTERED SILENCE (Part Two) is available for purchase from all major online retailers for only $3.99, if you’re dying to find out what happens next.

As soon as the free version is available, I will post it on my Facebook page and my Twitter: @WriterSherry so be sure that you follow me at both of these social media sites, and on the Official Spellbound Blog.

Please help me to promote this free eBook by posting it on your FB page, send out a tweet, or posting it on your blog, with a link back to this post. ;-D

So, is anyone willing/able to read and review the new version of BB? And if you feel compelled, would you be so kind as to leave an honest review on Amazon and/or Goodreads afterwards? (You don’t have to include that it was a “free read,” and actually, I’d prefer that you didn’t. But it’s fine if you do.)

NOTE: Please remove/delete the previous copy BEFORE uploading the new version to ensure that you read the correct edition. Sometimes an eReader device will not upload another version of the same title if the old one isn’t removed first.

I honestly don’t know what fans are waiting for. This is a great opportunity for you to read the additional scenes of Beautifully Broken, delivered to you for Free. What other author, right now, loves her fans so much that she is giving them a copy of their favorite book plus a Gift Card with just a simple honest review?
