As the release date for Earthbound rapidly approaches, I’m busily adding all of the final touches that are required whenever a book is released – polishing, tightening screws, filing back rough edges, that kind of thing.
One of the many tasks involved in all of this is promotion for the book. This time around I’m going to try a Goodreads Giveaway for the paperback version of Earthbound to help generate some buzz. I did one of these for After the Winter and had about 1400 entries. But, to be honest, I don’t think there was any bump in sales from the competition. There are so many giveaways on the site that they turn into a bit of a ‘click and forget’ deal, but… what the hell, I’m going to do another one anyway! They’re a bit of fun if nothing else.
Goodreads Giveaways are free to enter, but you will need a Goodreads account to register. Last time around the books were won by people who weren’t really fans of mine, let alone the genre, so it would be great if someone who actually wanted the book received a copy this time. So please enter by clicking the image below. You’ll be taken to the Goodreads site where you’ll be able to enter the giveaway. Good luck!
