This year, I felt led to do as many giveaways as possible. I love doing them because it gives me a chance to reward my readers (okay, at least the readers who win the giveaway) and to give back to them for all the support they are providing to us. It also gives me the wonderful opportunity to get to know my readers better and communicate with them as they answer the question I post. For the most part, giveaways are easy to set up, and they are a lot of fun.
I often get great help, too, like improving my tagline or naming a pet in a future book (and choosing the kind of pet in the first place). So please meet adorable Dachshund Chip from Love Me, who probably wouldn’t have found its way into the pages of my new book if not for my readers!
Recently, I gave away 20 ecopies of the new release. I just had three giveaways going at the same time: at Fiction Full of Faith blog (absolutely love that Christian fiction blog!), our readers group Three Authors and a Blogger, and here at Inspy Romance, each for a different Amazon gift card value. They were all to celebrate the release of Love Me in the Chapel Cove Romances series.
In honor of the series launch, Autumn Macarthur run a $10 Amazon voucher giveaway on her Facebook author page. The giveaway is open until 6 p.m. CST May 1st, 2019. I’d love it if you stopped by and commented on her post to enter. Best wishes in the giveaway.
I also enjoy doing tri-author paperback giveaways with Autumn Macarthur and Marion Ueckermann and hope to do one soon. One of the previous times we did it, we learned so many wonderful holiday traditions from our readers.
There’s also a brand-new giveaway at my author page for a chance to win $10 Amazon gift card. I’d be thrilled if you stopped by and commented!
I can’t help mentioning that my friend, Autumn Macarthur, is offering her ebook, The Wedding List for FREE (only through April 29t, 2019). I think that was the first book written by Autumn that I read, and I loved it!
I learn as I go, and I’d like very much to improve my giveaways. What better way to do it than to ask you, our readers?
Here are a few questions I’ll be grateful to see answers to.
Do you like participating in the giveaways? If so, why?
What do you prefer as a prize? Amazon gift card? A paperback? Fun items related to the story? For example, in Love Me, Kristina has a weakness for a chocolate cake, chocolate-filled brioches, well, you get the idea. Would you like the prize to be an assortment of chocolates? How about earrings with the book cover? Something else I haven’t thought of?
If the ebook is offered as a prize and you like it, would it make you wait until the winner is announced to buy it?
How long would you like the giveaway to last? Are you okay with the giveaways that span several weeks?
Is there such a thing as too many giveaways? Do you get tired if an author offers giveaways too often?
Giveaway! You knew that was coming, right? One randomly chosen commenter to this post will receive $7 Amazon gift card. Giveaway is open to people with www.amazon.com accounts. The giveaway is open until 6 p.m. CST May 7th, 2019.
