Darcia Helle (darciahelle) Hello everyone!

I'm organizing an Indie Books Holiday Giveaway Event. The response so far has been fantastic! Indie authors (self-published or small press) are welcome to offer as many titles and as many copies as they'd like. (So far I have participants offering from 1 to 10 copies of a title.) Both print and ebooks are welcome. The event will be hosted on its own page on my website, as well as on my blog. Participating authors are encouraged to promote on their own blogs, as well as through all social networks. If we get enough participation, I plan to go after newspaper coverage.

For more details, send me a message. Thanks!

D.W. (dw_stjohn) | 9 comments Hi Darcia,

How come all the cloak and dagger stuff? Why keep your site a secret? Isn't the idea to spread the word wide?

And while I'm making my ignorance plain for all to see, how come there's no place on goodreads to offer free ebooks?

I'm ready to learn so lemme have it. ha

be well, Dave

Darcia Helle (darciahelle) Hi Dave,

No cloak and dagger here. My website is listed on my profile. I didn't list it here because the actual event page isn't live, yet, so there's nothing there that's relevant to the event. But here it is, for all inquiring minds to see:

www.QuietFuryBooks.com or www.DarciaHelle.com

Same site, 2 URLs.

As for offering free ebooks here, I have no idea why that's not an option. You'd have to take that one up with Goodreads management. :)

Hi Darcie, I know I offered a copy of THE SECRETS OF THE UNWRITTEN BOOK:Fate of the Golden Heart. Right now, I have so many events I meet my self coming and going. I do not remember if I sent you a synopsis and all the info you asked for or not. I did mention this upcoming event on my radio show.blogtalkradio.com/malikas-secrets, but....my phone cord gave up the ghost and I fear the broadcast was garbled. Please e-mail me up to date info you want me to pass on ,plus did I or did I not give you all the info you need????I air at 11:30 PM CDT on Fridays. Malika Bourne the nortorious OOPS! I misspelled what?

Darcia Helle (darciahelle) Malika, you didn't confirm a giveaway offer. I don't have you on the list. I'll send you a message with the details I'll need.

What a disaster with the phone cord messing up your show! Sometimes it's the simple things that cause us the biggest headaches!
