We actually have a thread for giveaways already but I'll just go ahead and delete that one since the giveaways are outdated anyways.

K.C. | 4 comments Hi, I am a recent graduate. Just completed my MBA this past June. It only took me until I was 35 to start college. Hope you don't mind that I joined. I am having a free e-book giveaway on my website.

Here is an excerpt of the book.

http://kbalbify.com/k-c-lauer/bad-gir...

All you have to do is become a member by clicking on the Network options on the right side of the page. In the message box, put in free promotion code 01212011, and within 24 hours, you will receive an email with the free e-book. You can read it on Kindle, your I-Phone or on your computer desktop. Whatever you prefer. Any reviews I receive at Goodreads would be highly appreciated, but not expected.

This promotion ends January 31st, 2011.

message 13: by Paula (new)

Paula | 101 comments I had a question about Goodread giveaways - which I'm sure was answered in the other discussion, but I can't remember it.
I feel like I enter quite a few of them and I have yet to win one. I add most of them to my to-read and a "first-reads" shelf. And I review most books I read. I thought this was most of their requirements and yet I still haven't won anything.
So my question is: how many goodreads giveaways did you request before you actually won one?


message 14: by Daisy (new)

Daisy | 686 comments I have yet to actually receive one, I won and then it never got here... And I do the same thing you do: review the books I read and add them to my to-read shelf, so I don't know, maybe it's just bad luck.


message 15: by Denise (new)

Denise | 66 comments Are you entering really popular giveaways? Ones that several hundred or even over a thousand people are requesting for yet only a few copies are being won? If so, maybe you should try entering less popular ones just to get a few wins under your belt first.

I don't know if that will really help--I haven't had a ton of luck, either (but I don't write many reviews so I tend to assume I won't win). I just won my third giveaway out of all that I've entered in the last year and a half.


message 16: by Tami (new)

Tami | 3103 comments Mod
I won my first after about 6 months of entering. They ended up giving out a copy to all that entered, but the actual giveaway was for 500 copies. So, I agree. Make sure to sign up for some that have multiples and/or not a lot of entries.

After the first one, it took a few months, but then I started getting others pretty regularly. Keep trying, and Good Luck!


message 17: by Paula (new)

Paula | 101 comments Thanks for the advice! I feel like I enter a variety of giveaways, but maybe I'm actually not... It's good to see that I'm not the only one with this experience. I'll just keep obsessively entering. Maybe one day they'll throw me a bone.


message 18: by Megan (new)

Megan | 203 comments My first win was one where they gave everyone who entered the book. Since then I have noticed that I won't win another book until I have reviewed the last one that I won.


message 19: by Kelly A. (new)

Kelly A. | 499 comments I've seriously must have entered at least 200 giveaways...and have won two. My last win was over a year ago. I don't understand this, I have a book blog and review a lot of books.

I then had a thought: a lot of times if I win a book (blog or Twitter related) or a publisher sends me an ARC, they won't take my P.O. box address and ask for another one. Maybe they are seeing my P.O. box address on here and just ignoring it....hmm.


message 20: by Enrico (new)

Enrico Antiporda | 3 comments Hi guys,

I'm giving away ten signed copies of my college-oriented novel, The Band of Gypsies. Inspired by the AIESEC experience, the novel tells the story of foreign exchange students caught in the Basque turbulence in Northern Spain. To enter, you can go to the Goodreads giveaway page for the book: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/10....

I wouldn't have posted this except for the fact that it's quite relevant to the college experience.

Email me with any questions.

Enrico
