Welcome back Billi!
Tee Morris is well known for his Billibub Baddings series. The podcast version of The Case of the Singing Sword won the Parsec for Best Audio drama back in 2009, and the print version from Dragon Moon Press was an Honorable Mention in Forward’s Book of the Year award.
The reversion of rights to these stories back to Tee Morris has helped clear the way for digital editions of The Case of the Singing Sword and The Case of the Pitcher’s Pendant. However there are plenty of people out there who do not know about Billi and we here at Imagine That! Studios believe it is time for a comeback for one good reason…
Tee Morris wants to write more Billi. Now the only way for him to clear his plate enough to do this is for there to be enough interest to warrant it. Simply put: If Billi sells well enough and we know there is a market for the dwarf detective, then we can strong-arm Tee into producing more.
To that end we’re running a promotion through all of April — Billi’s Cold Case Collection competition.
The rules are simple — help spread the word about Billi. Every tweet you post, every review you give for the two (at the moment) novels on Goodreads.com, Amazon.com, Smashwords.com and Barnesandnoble.com, every Facebook message you send, every picture you pin to Pinterest counts as one entry to this competition.
For tweets and pinterest, use the hashtag #Billisback and we’ll see it. For Facebook please either tag in Tee Morris or Philippa Ballantine. For reviews, please send the link where you posted it to contact AT imaginethatstudios DOT com.
