Review it up!

Rhonda is asking her fans for their help to spread the word about The Mark of a Druid.

Rhonda says,

 “Where can you put them? Itunes, Amazon, B&N, Podiobooks.com, Podcast pickle; your personal blog is a great place to talk about the book or where ever you can think of to put up a review. I still have not found a way to see overseas Amazon reviews so if you are out of the U.S. please feel free to take a screen shot and email.
This contest is retroactive so if you’ve written a review already just click participate on contest #10 and let me know where you left the review. Same thing for new reviews.
On September 13th I will announce 2 random winners from all those who review it or have already posted a review. What will you get? A lead into the final contest for the grand prize of the original oil on canvas that will be awarded at the end of this year. With this prize you can really see the hidden images on the cover.
Your words mean the world to me and I want to read them.
Good Luck,
