More Than You Think You Know: Cover Party!

It’s time for the More Than You Think You Know cover reveal party!

In January and February, we revealed the cover concepts for Let the Dead Bury the Dead on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  The best part of sharing these concepts with you was the feedback we received from fans and followers of not only Beating Windward Press, but the author, Joan King, as well.  So, we have to say, we are really looking forward to hearing from you this time as well.

We’re also going to be launching our very own hashtag for Instagram and Twitter, and we’re changing up how the raffle works.  We’ll still be physically drawing names from a hat, or boat, or some other big, hollow confetti holding object on Friday, Live on Facebook, but instead of mixing all the social platforms together, we’ll be drawing winner’s names from each platform separately.

That means, the more platforms you participate on, the more changes you have to win a free copy of More Than You Think You Know.

more than you think you know cover concept 2Now, on to how you can participate!

We’re revealing two covers today, you can see them right here in this post, as well as on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  You let us know which one you like best, and it’ll come back tomorrow to battle face off against the next cover!  We’ll do this all the way up until Friday, when we reveal the final cover!

Everything you do on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram gives you points toward the Raffle, but here’s the quick and easy guide:

Every Like or Comment on a cover party post on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram wins you (1) point towards that platform’s drawing.

Every Share or Retweet on Facebook or Twitter earns you (2) points toward that platforms drawing.

And every use of our brand new hashtag #menopausalangst or #hotandflashy on Twitter or Instagram earns you (3) points toward that platform’s drawing.

More Than You Think You Know by Cyndi Perkins

With her children grown and gone, Hailey can no longer stomach living with her abusive husband. In the middle of a boating trip, she steals a sailboat and ventures solo across Lake Michigan. In a Chicago harbor, she meets Robin, the chain-smoking divorcee, Captain of the 44-foot luxury trawler Blackout. When the Coast Guard broadcasts a radio alert for the stolen sailboat, Robin insists Hailey seek asylum and travel downriver with her. In Joliet, they take on Trish, a Las Vegas gold-digger who deserts her Sugar Daddy’s yacht to join the crew and get out of Illinois.

Hailey, Robin, and Trish navigate the 1,300-mile-long series of rivers and locks through the Heartland Rivers from Chicago to the Gulf of Mexico, keeping weary eyes out for barges and Hailey’s husband. With no sense of destination beyond Mobile Bay, they are on not one journey, but two: America’s Great Loop and the search for their own place to be safe, to be happy, to be themselves.
