Denise Baer Hello All,

I currently have a Goodreads Giveaway running for my novel, Net Switch, from Oct. 4 to Oct. 18. I've seen other giveaways run back to back, and wanted to try it out to keep the momentum going.

Since giveaways have to be setup 7 days in advance, I thought I'd go in and set one up now. I put in Oct. 18 to Nov. 1, but it tells me "Book There is already a pending or active giveaway for this title (giveaway #205770)." I then tried Oct. 19 to Nov. 2, and still the same thing.

Has anyone done this before? Do I need to choose a different book ID?

Help!
Denise

Graeme Rodaughan Hi Denise,

This is also my plan.

I suspect (without knowledge) that submission may work once you are in the last week of the current giveaway.

I would try again after October the 11th.

Just a thought.

Denise Baer Hi Graeme,

Thanks much. I'll wait and then let you know.

Take care.

I'd advise you to inquire from the website first. They are usually very helpful with advice.

Good luck,

Frank

Thanks much, Frank. Maybe I'll post in the Librarian Group.

Denise Baer I just thought I'd come back and let you know about back-to-back giveaways.

If you receive the error I did, create the giveaway using a different book ID. When it's pending approval, edit it to the proper book ID.

FYI, My giveaway has been available since Oct. 4 and I have 690 entries and 1,126 put on their to-read shelves. I hope the second giveaway keeps the momentum and I get a few reviews and sales out of them. If not, I gotta get another book out there.

Graeme Rodaughan Hi Denise,

I'm working on Book 2 as well.

The "Shelf" goes to author credibility.

Denise Baer Just an FYI, there are 18 more hours left of my first giveaway with 1,423 entries so far and 1,390 added to their to-read.

My second one started 7 hours ago, and so far I have 208 entries. I'm very excited. If I'm lucky, I'll at least get a few reviews from them and maybe a few sales.
