Want a Character in Book 2 Named After YOU?

YES! You read that right πŸ™‚ Book 2 in the Ariya Adams trilogy is coming along and there is a small character that I want to give a name to. I thought to myself, what would be a great way to show my appreciation for you? Name a character after one of YOU!!! Don’t want your actual name used, that’s okay – you can pick a different name then but the choice will be yours!!!

So, how do I choose?! Well, we are going to make it a contest and hopefully it’s a fun one. The point scale is listed out below. Each time you do any of these things, you will earn a certain number of points. I’m making this contest last for 1 FULL WEEK! So there is plenty of time to do any of the 5 items listed below πŸ™‚

  • Comment on a Facebook update on my Author Page (yep, anything I post, write a comment or thought about it – that’s easy! It’s because I love hearing from you!): 1 point for each comment
  • Tweet to @applegak #TeamJames or #TeamRiley. If you haven’t read Protected yet, tweet #ilovevampires or #AriyaAdams: 1 point for each tweet
  • Write an HONEST review of Protected (You do not get bonus points for good reviews. I want honesty so I can improve if there are areas I need to work on πŸ™‚ ). Post on Amazon, GoodReads, or Barnes & Noble: 2 points for each post (Remember, if you don’t use your full name in the reviews online, send me a message via ‘Contact Me’ on my website or on my Facebook Author page so I know it was you)
  • If you haven’t read Protected, head over to Amazon or Barnes & Noble and purchase. Let me know you bought it in a comment on this post, or on my Facebook Page: 2 pointsΒ 
  • Select a person that would be YOUR ideal Dream Cast Member for Protected. This is easy if you’ve already posted about it – just repost on your Facebook page, or mine. You can choose any character from the book to cast. Share your choice on your own Facebook page, my Facebook page, or send me an email by reaching out via the ‘Contact Me’ tab on this website, and I’ll post it for you: 2 points for each person cast

That’s it! What do you think? Are you excited? I know I am! I can’t wait to hear from you all. I will be monitoring the above for 1 week. The contest will end at 6:00 pm Thursday, August 15th. I will announce the winner that Thursday evening.

As a special BONUS I will be sending the Runner-Up to this contest a sneak peek look into Book 2. I’ll make it juicy too πŸ™‚ 1st prize may mean a character named after them, but 2nd prize gets an early preview to Book 2.

Let me know if you have questions! Ready….Set….GO! Good Luck πŸ™‚

  1. Do you talley our things and email you? or message you on FB page? Or are you just going to figure it out? I totally think my name would be lovely in book 2 lol! πŸ™‚


    • Great question! I am tracking everything πŸ™‚ Facebook Posts and Tweets not only get emailed to me, but I double check them all at the end of each day too.

      The only thing I need to be told is if you purchase the book or if you leave a review somewhere without your full name. Everything else I can access and track myself! πŸ™‚


  2. This is such an awesomely fun idea!! I have only read part of Protected (the ‘sample’ you can get), but I love it. I will buying it tomorrow from Amazon. Do you need a purchase # or anything?
    Also my Amazon account is listed under Zombimomi (my kids nickname for me), the B&N is Zombimom. Goodreads & Facebook is Michelle Hofacker. I don’t have twitter but have a pinterest.
    I’m babbling, so sorry, I’m a huge book nerd and I’ve wanted to read your book and it’s on ‘the’ list,
    if you know what I mean. Sorry.. 8)


    • Hi Michelle! Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚ I don’t need a purchase number, just comment on my FB page that you got it πŸ™‚ I LOVE the nicknames haha. Feel free to comment away on FB for points!! I’ll make sure you get ones for this comment and for the Amazon purchase!

      And I hear you on “the” list…I think mine is more then I will ever get to and I’m trying desperately to go through as many as I can heehee. Good Luck and hope you have fun in the contest!!!
