RG2E…Reaching Ereaders One Ebook Gift at a Time!!!

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!!!

As we continue our week long RG2E Birthday Party, I thought it might be fun to see what just one Ebook Gift can do…

By the end of this month, we’ll have Ebook Gifted almost 2000 Ebooks…One Reader, One Ebook Gift at a Time!!!

Here at The RG2E, we believe that…

Nothin’ beats treatin’ readers!!!

And we also believe that nothin’ reaches all of you superfab readers like by being able to say…

The First One is On Me!!!

That’s how I built my D. D. Scott-ville Epublishing Empire…by saying:

“Try my D. D. Scott books…and I’ll tell you what…how ’bout ‘the first one is on me’?!”

And I used the A-mazing Aretha Franklin’s “Freeway of Love” pink cadillac as my logo for a superfab fun “Ridin’ The Free-way” campaign!!!

Not until I made the book that started it all for me (my debut release) – BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS – Free across all platforms (Amazon, B&N Nook, Smashwords, Sony, Apple, Kobo and Diesel) in September 2011 did I learn what that kind of Pay It Forward approach could do to build my reader base.

Going on 7 months later, BOOTSCOOTIN’ BLAHNIKS has now been downloaded over 115,000 times across all platforms!!!

That’s 115,000 new D. D. Scott-ville readers!!!

Plus…I’ve now become both an Amazon and B&N Top 100 Bestselling Author and have sold going on 100,000 Ebooks (across all 14+ titles I now have out)!!!

I’m sharing this scoop with you not to brag…not at all…rather, I’m sharing with you the story behind why I created The RG2E and why the philosophy we operate on is:

The First One is On Me…Reaching Ereaders One Ebook Gift at a Time!!!

Okay then…let’s take this little Pink Cadillac Philosophy for a test drive…shall we?

Help me share with the world what receiving an Ebook Gift “on me” has done for your Ereading Libraries…

Here’s a series of RG2E Reader Polls for y’all to participate in to show the world what Reaching Ereaders One Ebook Gift at a Time can do:

As a special thank you to all of you superfab RG2E Peeps for helping us build one heckuva dynamic Ereading Community, one of you who comments below – about your thoughts regarding what our RG2E Ebook Gifts mean to you – will receive…an RG2E T-shirt!!!

Kindle Fire Bubble Twead with D. D. Scott this coming Thursday, April 12th!!!

Happy Monday, RG2E Peeps!!!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!!!

As we hinted over the weekend…We’re over the moon to announce a very special event coming to ya later this week…

Coming soon – this Thursday, April 12th at 7 PM Central Time – I’ll be hosting a very special “Meet-and-Greet” on the Kindle Fire, using its waaay cool “Bubble Tweading” (that’s my name for it 🙂 ) Feature!!!

I’ve been playing around with this feature the last couple days, and it’s just beyond fabulous!!!

Basically, what this Kindle Fire Feature/Update allows us to do is to have a live chat “inside a book” as we’re all readin’ it!!! It’s as if we’re Tweeting each other in real time right from inside the Ebook!!!

How cool is that?!

I call it Bubble Tweading (okay…the Tweading is Bufo Calvin of I Love My Kindle’s term for it…LOL…but I added the Bubble) because you’re kinda Tweeting while you’re Ereading (there’s the Twead), and you access this feature by tapping on the Bubble icon along the Home Toolbar at the bottom of your Kindle Fire screen.

Here’s how it works:

Begin reading whatever Ebook you’d like to from your Kindle Fire. While you’re inside the book, tap on the Home Screen Bar at the bottom of the page you’re reading then tap on the Bubble icon. A screen comes up that you can comment on, and your comment is then added to the stream of comments inside that book as well as to the Kindle Community comments. You can also choose to have your comment posted on Twitter and Facebook (which I have also been doing…for example, check out my Facebook Wall, and you’ll see a few I did over the weekend 🙂 )

The Feature even allows you to post the areas of the book you’ve highlighted and then post those on Twitter and/or Facebook too! Notice, on my Facebook (DeeDee Scott), I’ve been reading Kris Jenner’s Memoir and noted quotes of hers I really like.

And no worries, Y’all, yes, you’ll see some nasty comments in my Bootscootin’ Blahniks Bubble Tweads…but that’s okay…at least these peeps felt strong enough to comment, right?! 🙂  Although, it never ceases to amaze me that people can be sooo rude…I have no problem at all if you don’t like my books, but wow, can’t these peeps find a more human kind way to let authors know that?!

Anyhoo…Bubble Tweading is waaay fun, and I can’t wait to Bubble Twead on Kindle Fire with all of you A-mazing RG2E Peeps!!!

What a terrific new way to interact with you, get to know you and see what you’re liking – or not liking (that’s valuable too) – about my Ebooks!!!

In the mean time, in order to check out this feature and encourage y’all to use it, I’ll tell ya what…all you Kindle Fire Peeps…

How ’bout we Ebook Gift y’all the Ebook of your choice on Amazon between the 99 Cent and $2.99 price point that you’d like to use to Bubble Twead?!

Doesn’t matter whether or not we’ve featured it on The RG2E, just tell us the title and author, and we’ll fill the first 50 requests today…

***Now then…no worries if you don’t have a Kindle Fire yet…we’ll also do some special days like this with all you waaay wonderful Nook, Sony, Kobo, iPad, Smashwords and/or Free Ereading Apps Readers!!!

Let’s dive right into today’s EOTD…

Romance (Contemporary):

Author: Stacey Joy Netzel

On Amazon , B&N Nook , Smashwords , ARe

Price: $1.99

Word Count: 28,500

Summer Clark: Yes, I’m excited for my ten year class reunion—I flew all the way from Florida to Wisconsin so I could rub my success in Josh Nelson’s face. I know it sounds vindictive, but the jerk ditched me at the Snowball dance, left me to find my own ride home, and never apologized. He’s got it coming…if I can get a tow truck to come out in this freak May snowstorm and pull my rental car out of the ditch.

Josh Nelson: No, I’m not looking forward to the reunion. Just hearing the name Summer Clark brings back memories of a night I buried long ago and never talked about again. Seeing her means skirting the truth while trying to deliver a way-too-late apology. No, with this storm, I think I’ll head home…as soon as I help this car sunk in the ditch.

Clearly, there are two sides to every story.
