Hi, folks. So. Because of my bout of illness and consequently loooong more-or-less-total absence from the bookery world, my newer books have been sadly neglected and they have not been promoted as I would normally do. I’m making up for that now, but it takes time, and meanwhile some of my poor books are languishing with very few reviews.
This is a little bit of a problem. Furthermore, I am sometimes asked for signed paperbacks but for various (mostly geographical) reasons it is hard for me to offer these. I like to try to plug this gap by running a giveaway from time to time (until I figure out a solution). And it has been a while since the last one, hasn’t it?
For the next few weeks I propose to combine these two problems(ish) and invite you to turn reviewer. Until October 31st I will be offering review copies (e-books only) of the following titles:
The Malykant Mysteries Compendium
Normally I only offer review copies selectively, but for the next few weeks these are available to anyone who’d like to participate. Secondly, anybody who posts a review of one or more of the above books during this event will be entered into a draw to win three signed paperbacks of your choice. I’ll also be picking a runner-up who’ll receive one signed paperback.
NOTE: I can’t offer a Malykant Mysteries paperback because I don’t have one yet. That’s coming. The Draykon Series, Aylfenhame #1, Black Mercury and Seven Dreams are all available.
How to Participate:
If you’ve already read any or all of the above but haven’t reviewed them yet, all you need to do is go write up a review. Post it to your favourite ebook store, and/or Goodreads, LibraryThing, etc. Email me via my contact form with a link to your review(s) and I’ll put your name into the hat.
If you haven’t read any of these titles but you’d like to, contact me at the above address and I will supply you with a review copy. After that, as above.
Note that you effectively receive one entry in my little prize-draw per review, so if you review all four, you get entered four times and will therefore have a higher chance of winning some paperbacks.
E-book review copies are available until October 12th. The Great Review Event closes on November 30th, after which time I’ll be picking the winners and sending out the books. This means you’ll have a couple of months to read the books and post reviews.
This is open to pretty much anyone, anywhere in the world. BUT, if you live somewhere where it’s going to be really hard for me to post books to you… well, we’ll have to figure something out. In the vast majority of cases this is unlikely to be a problem.
I’ll be using some fantastic gadgety random-number-generator to pick the winners, so it’ll all be as… well, random as I can make it.
I’ll probably use Smashwords to distribute review copies, because it’s easy and convenient for all. If you really prefer not to use Smashwords, however, let me know and I’ll do something else.
That’s it! If you have any questions please comment, or email me, and I shall duly answer them. In the meantime, happy reading!
