BLOG TOUR DE FORCE IS HERE-- SO SPEAK UP AND WIN A KINDLE

Okay, so I got involved with this whole Blog Tour de Force thing without really knowing too much about it, but the people running it are great and very supportive.  I ask a stupid question and they make it sound like I'm a genius for thinking up such a wonderful query.

So here's what I know for sure:

1- Every time you leave a comment on this post you automatically receive a free eBook copy of my Award-Winning novel, "A Touch of Deceit."  Just leave your email within the comment.

2-Every time you leave a comment you're automatically in the drawing for a free Kindle with the 12 Tour de Force books pre-loaded.

3- Check out my sponsors who have actually left a review of my novel on their blog.  They're all good reviews because I'm holding their dogs hostage until the tour is over.

4- Author who receives the most comments gets a professional book trailer made.  Guess who has a sequel coming out next month and needs a book trailer?

5- Like my Facebook fan Page: http://www.facebook.com/?ref=home#!/pages/Author-Ponzo/120694977955559

TODAY'S CAGE MATCH

"A Touch of Deceit," by Gary Ponzo vs "Nearly Departed," by Ann Charles:

Here's how I have this handicapped.  A Touch of Deceit is clearly the front-runner.  A Sicilian FBI agent recruits his Mafia cousin to track down a terrorist. C'mon, that right there is enough to win this match.  But the competition is tough.  Ann Charles has also written an Award-Winning novel, "Nearly Departed," where love, mystery and paranormal all come together under one roof.  Okay, that's good.  Throw in a couple of Zombies and I might vote for the damn book myself.

So, comment, comment, comment and see who will win this match.

  12. Best of luck in the cage match, Gary. I'm pulling for you, but it does look tough: FBI/mafia/terrorist have a lot of firepower, but one bit of paranormal could render them ineffective. I'm talking real life, not the books. robb@robbgrindstaff.com

  28. This is really fun. I am meeting new (to me) authors and that is the biggest treat ever. I look forward to reading your book and wish you great success on your upcoming release. I enjoyed your comments on Read My Mind and frankly they just made me want to search out your work more. I am so appreciative of you authors that I know have to make a living just like I do sharing your work at an affordable price. I have often gotten the books because of their affordability even when they are not necessarily a genre I am currently reading and what treasures. Again, thank you for your efforts and best success to you.

  38. Ok Gary...I must confess that I'm a little biased...I've already read Ann's Deadwood. But since I'm an equal opportunity reader, and won't pass up the chance to read a book about my peeps (I'm Italian too). I'm looking forward to reading A Touch of Deceit. Good luck in the fight!

  39. And I'm a little biased towards Gary's "Touch" book - thriller/FBI/mafia/ - what's not to love? It's such a good read, and I'm looking forward to the sequel(?).

    However, I will certainly take a look at Deadwood - it looks good too. Congratulations to both authors - I hope this keeping us so entertained will be a fulfilling and profitable adventure for YOU.

  90. Gary, I often tell my readers that, today, this industry is a two-way street. Yes, we writers produce books, but times have changed and now the readers have found their voice as well. Comment streams, such as this one, and email gives a writer feedback that did not exist just a few short years ago. Now readers are even underlining things in electronic books and the underlines show up on the Amazon page, how cool is that? Thanks for the blog!

  92. I really liked "A Touch of Deceit" book, a very pleasant surprise. A solid 4 1/2 Stars. A very easy read that had just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. Gary Ponzo has a knack for spinning the action fiction.. Give this author and series a shot, I think you will find it very entertaining. Thanks Gary for a great read, you hooked me, I'm now going to read " A Touch Of Revenge.
