The Blind Date: Free Copy & Contest

The Blind Date is free on Amazon! I gave away pdf and epub copies a couple of weeks ago to anyone who’d like a copy for their ereader. Now it’s time for anyone with a Kindle or using the Kindle app to get their free copy. The book will be free until October 7th, after which it goes to the regular price of $2.99.

  1. This was tough, but I have to say that I enjoyed it. It gave me the opportunity to discover new authors, and I know have them on my list to check there website and books.

    Thanks Delaney


    • Oh no, was it hard? I tried to make it easy to find the answers while you were on the other sites. I’ll think of something else next time. It’s good to have the feedback, though, and I’m glad you at least found other authors to read.


  2. This was fun I needed the break!!

  5. Hi Ms. Delaney,

    You know I am a follower of your work. I loved this contest. Most of the authors, I already follow. I did, however, enjoy getting to know about and visiting the ones I did not know. Kudos to you, this was fun and rewarding.


  6. You’re welcome, Jackie and Nylne!

    Stephanie, I’ve read books by most of these authors and enjoyed them, so I know you’ll have plenty of pleasurable reading time ahead.

    Hello Delaney,

    I liked this hunt a lot! It did give me the opportunity to review their blogs in depth. The bad part,—I knew and have read books by most of the authors. I’m glad I had the opportunity to explore the sites who do book reviews. They were new to me so that was a plus. I will be checking them out in the future.

    Delaney, the contest was beautifully done! Thanks for the opportunity. Hopefully, I’ll see my name in lights! LOL. 😀

    Take care
    Belinda G


  8. Fun Contest!!! Thanks for the entertainment and the insight on all of those blogs!!!

  10. Belinda, I’m not surprised you knew a lot of them. You’re such an avid reader.

    Glad you enjoyed the contest, Nakia and Nikki, and I’m glad you found new blogs to follow.


  11. I had a blast with this contest. My wallet is not very happy but my library is ever so full. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to find more authors and blogs.


  12. I love the contest. It introduced to more authors and books to read. I’ll love it even more when I win! Thanks Delaney! 😀


  13. You’re welcome, Thelritta.
    Nice try Monica, lol, but I’m glad you enjoyed the contest.


  14. You all did an awesome job on the scavenger hunt! I’m really impressed. But there can only be two winners. The list randomizer has chosen, and the lucky winners are….Pam and Monica!

  16. Sandy, I don’t know why you received the message today. The notice was sent on October 4 to subscribers of my blog (note the date up top on the blog post). There must have been a delay by your email provider.


  17. Hi Delaney do you have a date when The Blind Date will be on something other than Amazon? I’ve check ARE Books A Million and Sony but none of them have it yet. Thanks


    • Hi Kimberly! Things slow down this time of year at the retailers, but I’ll have it to the sites early enough to get approval and uploaded in time for December 20th. No guarantee on B&N because they can be kind of up in the air, but ARE should be good to go!
