You Must Enter To Win
I'm a big fan of Goodreads. According to their website, there are 40 million active members on this site. If you don't know much about Goodreads, I encourage you to take this teleseminar and learn about it. As an author, you need to be there. Also you need to be reviewing books as a reader of books on Goodreads.
During the last few months, I've initiated two other Goodreads Giveaways. Today my new Goodreads giveaways were approved. They will run for about two and a half weeks or through the end of July. I hope you will enter and tell your friends to enter. Goodreads are a great way to spread the news about your books.
This time I did three books--two that are new and one that has been around several years.
First here's the giveaway for Billy Graham, A Biography of America's Greatest Evangelist. This book has currently 39 reviews on Amazon and I've received terrific positive feedback from readers about this book. The Goodreads giveaway:
The second giveaway is for Jumpstart Your Publishing Dreams, Insider Secrets to Skyrocket Your Success. Like my previous book, this book has received positive feedback from readers.
The majority of giveaways on Goodreads are new books but they do not have to be. The third book for a giveaway is Book Proposals That Sell, which has over 130 Five Star Amazon reviews and some people consider a classic in the publishing community. I've had authors write and say they used this book to get a $25,000 advance.
I hope you will spread the news about the limited time of this giveaway. Like any contest, you must enter to have a chance to win. Goodreads picks the winners and sends me a list of the winners, then I mail them the books and certify to Goodreads that I've sent the books. If you don't send the books or Goodreads receives complaints, then you can be ban from future Goodreads Giveaways.
If you are a published author (traditional or self-published), I hope you will look into using Goodreads Giveaways for your books.
