It’s that simple!

Winners will be announced on December 2, 2012. 

Each of the two lucky winners will receive his/her choice of:

1. Professional Kindle or Smashwords formatting for your upcoming book, PLUS free consultation on how to improve your website or blog traffic & visibility!

Mike and Maddy deliver flawless, professionally formatted ebooks/paperbacks. Ever since I started using DWD services for my Kindle, Smashwords and Create Space formatting, I stopped stressing over possible formatting errors. Having delegated this important, but tedious task to pros, I can now fully concentrate on my writing and promotional efforts.

2. Unique, custom designed Vertical Flash Banner App, which will set apart your website or blog, making it unforgettable, PLUS free consultation on how to improve your website traffic and visibility!

Every author/artist/small business owner should have a website and/or blog. It is our online business card that allows us to spread the word about our writing/art/services to people we would’ve never met otherwise. Mike & Maddy designed my website: LadaRay.com. They have also designed 2 awesome dynamic apps for my blog and website: a book carousel and a vertical flash banner.

Dynamic apps create focal points and generate additional interest for your blog or website, not to mention, they save space by carrying a ton of useful information in a compact, yet strikingly memorable presentation! For example, if you have multiple books in a series (like my Accidental Spy series) or multiple paintings/music albums/services you want to showcase, you can organize them in a flash banner, carousel or another cool dynamic app! I am very happy with my apps and I highly recommend them to you. Moreover, I intend to order more of those in the future!

Check out my Book Carousel: http://www.ladaray.com

The same Accidental Spy Flash Banner, but in larger size (middle of the page, in the right-hand corner): http://www.ladaray.com/accidental-spy-series1.html

You can win a custom designed Vertical Flash Banner like the one on my blog or website!

But that’s not all!

Regardless of whether you win or not, everyone who posts a review will receive 20% off Dynamic Web Design services PLUS a FREE consultation. To receive your 20% off and a free consultation, be sure to mention CATHARSIS Contest!

DWD services include ebook (Kindle, Smashwords, ebup/Nook, PDF) & paperback (Create Space) formatting, custom website design and website image face-lift, innovative web apps design, state-of-the-art search engine optimization (SEO) and internet security services.
