Goodreads Giveaway Contest

Goodreads has a program for authors, a giveaway , that is a great way to get exposure for your book! You can list any pre-release or published books for a giveaway, regardless of publication date.  https://www.goodreads.com/book

Last year, I ran a giveaway for my book, Watching Their Dance: Three Sisters, a Genetic Disease and Marrying into a Family At Risk for Huntington’s.  To participate in a “Giveaway” you are required to give away 10 of your books to folks who are chosen by Goodreads.  You can restrict it to within the U.S. or not.  I chose to open the event to folks around the world because, quite frankly, I want to sell the book globally.

The exciting news is that I had 817 readers sign up for the contest, so I was jazzed.  It turned out six winners were in the U.S. and four out of the country.

Goodreads gave my book quite a bit of exposure, Story Book Book Review, they are part of Goodreads, and gave a fabulous book review, and I didn’t even have to ask for it.  (It was because I did a giveaway).
