How to Host a Book Giveaway Online

When we collected Free Sites to Promote Your eBook, we were also reminded of another way authors can find readers–giveaway promotions at literary social networks like LibraryThing or Goodreads.

If you are an author looking to arrange a book giveaway, just follow this Goodreads link or this LibraryThing link. If you are a reader looking to win giveaway books,  just visit this LibraryThing link or this Goodreads link.

Here’s more about the free program at Goodreads: “Goodreads will collect interest in the book, and select winners at our discretion. Our algorithm uses member data to match interested members with each book …Winning members are encouraged but not required to write a review of the book they receive. Ebooks are not allowed. Every winner must receive a physical copy of the book.”
