Another successful Goodreads Giveaway!!

My recent Goodreads Giveaway for 5 copies of my novel, Island in the Clouds, has been a big success, as far as I’m concerned!

797 Readers from 7 countries (Canada, US, GB, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa) entered during the 3 weeks this contest ran, and 5 were chosen by the Goodreads Team to receive print copies. I’ll be mailing those books out to the winners in the US (4) and GB (1) on Monday.

There were only a very few Readers who commented on the blog post announcement of this contest. I was running another Giveaway for eBooks there, since we can only give away print copies through Goodreads. So I’ve decided that everyone who commented will win, and I’ll be notifying those commentors about their eBook prizes later today. (Quite frankly, I’m surprised that so few Readers took me up on this offer. Maybe I should have run a contest separate from the Goodreads Giveaway for the eBook versions of my books, but then my experience has been that few people ever comment to enter when these offers are made. Why is that, I wonder …?)

So now we’re down to 4 Reading Recommendations Authors who are still running their Goodreads Giveaways, and I will continue to promote their contests for each of them.

Best of luck to everyone who enters!

    Like you, I’ve noticed that there’s never much of a response on my blog to contests, freebies, newsletter drives, you name it. I don’t know what to make of it other than people are reading tons of blogs and Twitter feeds and Facebook pages and, I hope!, actual books, so that they don’t take extra time to enter these things.

    Thanks for promoting my giveaway too!

    1. Let’s see what we can do about upping your numbers, shall we, Kevin! Over 400 people entered mine on that last day, so there is hope for you!
