ALLi Goodreads Group Giveaway – Looking For Thrillers

ALLi Goodreads Group Giveaway – Looking for Thrillers

Calling ALLi Members: As some of you know, we are doing a monthly giveaway through our Goodreads Group, starting this month. This is an opportunity for you (paid-up ALLi members only) to showcase books to some of Goodreads's eight million plus readers.

This Month we are Looking for Thrillers
Each month we'll do a different genre or theme. This month, October 2012, we're looking for thrillers.
If you're interested in taking part, you'll need to
  • be a member of The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi)
  • be a member of Goodreads and the ALLi Goodreads group (just google to find)
  • provide a print version of your book for the giveaway
  • commit to mailing it to wherever in the world our winner lives, once the winner is announced.
The giveaway is being co-ordinated each month by Geraldine. If you want to give away a book, email her at: [email protected] telling her:
  • the name of your book
  • one sentence re. what it's about
  • and its usual retail price.
Closing Date: October 15th.
Remember: it must be a print book to be eligible for a Goodreads giveaway.
And unless you would actually describe your book as a thriller, i.e. if it is actually historical, or sci-fi, or mystery etc, please hold off — your turn will come.

Such group giveaways are most effective when they reach readers of the specific genre.  November will be: Women's Fiction. December: Literary Fiction.  January 2013: Nonfiction: Mind, Body, Spirit.
And all genres and types of book will get their turn in this ongoing monthly feature.
The more we all support this, the bigger drawcard it will become and the better it will be for all our members. So pass the word around; put it out there on the social media and let's build the ALLi Goodreads Monthly Book Giveaway to a HUGE initiative.
