Giveaway for Pre-Orders of Daily Grind


ETA: The release date for Daily Grind has been moved back to Feb 21, 2017, but this giveaway is still running! I’ve just changed the date I’m drawing the winner.

It’s less than three months before Daily Grind comes out! Woo! Right now, there’s a special pre-order price for Daily Grind of $1.99. Once it goes on sale, it’ll be $3.99, which is still a good price for a book that long.

How long is it? Weeeeeellllll, it’s about 98,000 words. That’s 5,000 words longer than Due Diligence, more or less.

So $1.99 is a great price. But I want to sweeten the deal a bit.

For those of you that pre-order Daily Grind before December 6th, and send me proof or purchase (with any personal info you don’t want me seeing blotted out), I’ll enter you into a drawing for the very last paper ARC I have of Just Business and a $10 Starbucks gift card.


And I’m going to annotate the copy of Just Business…but with sticky notes, ’cause I am psychologically unable to write in books. Plus, to be honest, I make a lot of mistakes writing by hand, so I want the ability to do-over. And you want me to have that too, trust me.

I’ll point out my favorite scenes and why I wrote some things and little random facts about the book.

And for this, I’ll take international entries. (Though, I’m not sure the Starbucks card will work abroad.)

To enter, email me at annazaboauthor –at– gmail dot com with the subject Daily Grind Entry (so I can filter ’em and not lose ’em) and include your proof of purchase. Remember to blot out any personal info! I’ll tally the number and use to pick a winner.

You can order from any retailer. There are some pre-order links on the Daily Grind Book Page.

I’ll announce the winner on December 13th. February 28th. Good luck!

ETA: It occurs to me that I can’t do a giveaway without including a no-purchase option (oops), so if you email me at the same address and let me know why you’d like an annotated version of Just Business, I’ll enter you as well.


Some Brian for you

So, we’re a little less than three months away from the release of Daily Grind!

I’m so excited to share this book with you. Brian’s story is close to my heart, partly because there’s some of my story hidden in the pages.

I have some offerings for you that I posted at the Alpha Book Club to whet your appetite for a little caffeine infused fun.

First up is a little vignette between Justin and Eli…and Brian at Grounds N’at: Spice of Life

Next is the (unedited) first chapter of Daily Grind!

I hope you enjoy both!

In the next few weeks, I’ll be putting together a couple of giveaways, planning a blog tour, and getting into all kinds of trouble. Stay tuned!
