Mina Rehman | 22 comments Hiya!

So, I recently published a book (A Princess’s Guide to Dragon Domestication. It's a funny take on clichés found in YA/teenage fantasy novels and has a disaster-waiting-to-happen princess, grumpy dragons, ice cream, magic and a possibly evil fairy godmother) and I've been told that Goodreads giveaways can really help with getting the word out about a book.

But I was thinking that instead of spending money on buying my own book to giveaway, I could do a bit of a prize/giveaway thingy, where, after a set time, I'll randomly choose 4-6 people who wrote a review on my book (an honest one, of course), and mail them a paperback of my favourite book (via amazon, Wordery etc). This could get the word out, and also help me share my favourite books with people (which, the fangirl in me thinks, is a better way to spend my money).

Do you think it's a good idea? Would people be interested?

Anyways, thank you for your time and happy reading! ❤

Thank you for the feedback! ❤ I'm already excited just thinking about which books I want to share! 😂

I'm glad you like the title. 😊 It's a feel-good book I wrote to help with my anxiety, and I'm hoping it'll make other people laugh too.

Thank you for the feedback! ❤ I will definitely share them here. I've already started a list, organising the ones I like the most according to genre, so I can give people options (also means theres a greater chance they'll enjoy it)! 😆

Iris Schechter ok now I have a serious problem @mina. I can't work and read your book at the same time so I might get fired xD

But do we really like being forced to stay for a huge chunk of our day in some place, doing boring stuff, anyways? 🙈


message 20: by Iris (new)

Definitely not ! But I do need money to buy books and my parents said I'm too old to depend on them now xP

Parents. 😑 but I fully support the earning-to-buy-books agenda. That's what I'm doing with the money from sales too (charity, and MORE books)! 😆🙈
