Twistmas Goodreads Giveaway

Goodreads GiveawayIt’s been over two years since I ran my last giveaway on Goodreads. I usually host one when I publish a new book, but I didn’t last time. Not because I didn’t want to. I was just too busy with working six days a week outside the home.

With the recent release of Twistmas – The Season for Love, I wanted to get the news about the book out to as many people as I could in the shortest amount of time. As you might suspect, it’s a love story that takes place at Christmas time. Although some readers don’t mind reading seasonal stories on the beach in July, most read them in December.

So time is of the essence.

I had intended to have the giveaway on December 1st, but I quickly learned I couldn’t. Things had changed since my last giveaway, and I could not create a giveaway one day to see it up and running the next day.

I had waited until the last minute to create the giveaway because I wanted copies of the book in my hand to ensure I had them to giveaway.

An Interesting Post about Goodreads

Goodreads is a mega-huge site for readers (and authors). It contains features I haven’t yet had the time to explore. I learned a little bit more about the book community at Social Media Just for Writers  in the post How Authors Can Reach 20 Million Readers on Goodreads.

My First Goodreads Giveaway

Goodreads GiveawayWhen I first learnt about Goodreads Giveaways, I thought it was a great idea, a wonderful way to get your book into the hands of new readers. So far, I still do see it as a wonderful avenue for writers to explore.

If you’ve never participated in this option in Goodreads, let me share my experience (so far) with you.

Only paper copies of books (hard cover, paperbacks) are permitted in giveaways. I didn’t mind this restriction since I had planned to release a paperback version of Shadows in the Stone. Obviously, paperback giveaways cost more to do than eBook giveaways.

Good luck.

Snippet from Shadows in the Stone:

Bronwyn caught her studying him as he regained his breath. Besides her frazzled appearance and cut below her right eye, she seemed fine. Her deep breathing caused her bosom to gently rise and fall, drawing his eyes to the soft hollow between her breasts. A button appeared to have broken off in the scuffle, revealing soft curves of delicate skin. His blood warmed and the tiny hairs on his ears pricked. He swallowed hard, realising his gaze had lingered too long. He quickly looked at the stone wall. “Thank you for casting the spell to protect me.” His voice sounded gentler than he expected. He looked back at her. “You risked your life for mine.”
