18 Feb / An entreaty to the peoples of New Zealand (who read fiction)
I’ve signed up in the past for a couple of giveaways on Goodreads. Great fun, and lots of people who possibly will never get around to reading a book written by me add it to their “To Read” shelves so it makes it look tres popular.
As a result of opening these competitions up worldwide I’ve had the pleasure of sending my books to the far corners of the globe. Portugal, Lebanon, Montenegro, USA, Canada, and the UK at the last count.
It’s rather exciting to send books out to the far corners of the globe and wait to see whether or not people enjoy them. However, the one thing I’ve had little luck in finding out is how people in my own country feel about these things.
Therefore I’m happy to announce that I’ve now created a new Giveaway on Goodreads which is restricted to the good (and bad, I don’t want to be too restrictive) people of New Zealand.
The only drawback to this is that there are five books to giveaway. At the moment I have ZERO entries. Granted, it’s only been ten minutes since the giveaway launched, and chances are the peeps of middle earth have already tucked their little selves into bed with an existing book, but it does give me a bit of cause for concern.
So I send this heartfelt entreaty to the people of my land, please enter my giveaway. Please tweet or face or link or pin or plus or (insert any social media outlets that you use but I haven’t mentioned here) or otherwise share to your social networks and make sure that I don’t end up with pavlova in my face.
