This folder is to announce giveaways that will be hosted by Creative Reviews. Keep an eye out here for giveaways Cambria and I will be hosting through this great group!!


This section is to be used ONLY to announce giveaways that Creative Reviews is hosting. There will be other places for you to put up your own giveaways!!

Lol Same here! It took a while to get the paper off, but the books were perfect!

Dale Ibitz (goodreadscomdale_ibitz) | 298 comments Yeah, I don't think mine were wrapped in paper. It was more like titanium! But I'm happy all the same! Books were excellent.

Tarek Refaat | 7 comments Hi Amy ,

How does one participate to have his book in the giveaways ?


message 15: by Amy Eye (new)

Amy Eye | 1841 comments Mod
I have a list up asking if people would like to showcase their books in my giveaways! :)

It's a fairly painless process! hehe


message 16: by Tarek (new)

Tarek Refaat | 7 comments hehehe well can I kindly ask to be part of the list ? :D


message 17: by Amy Eye (new)

Amy Eye | 1841 comments Mod
Yes, you surely can, sir! :)


message 18: by Tarek (new)

Tarek Refaat | 7 comments Great ! So what do I need to do me Lady ? :)


message 19: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Tarek-
just go to the thread that Amy put up for showcasing your book in the giveaways and put your name down and the title of your book!


message 20: by Tarek (new)

Tarek Refaat | 7 comments Hi Cambria,

Thanks for the help, but I can't really find which thread, could you help me by pointing me out please ?

Here is a link to the thread for ya!! :)


message 22: by Sheila (new)

Sheila | 51 comments Hi, I just joined, and would like to list a Creative Reviews giveaway of my novel The Girl in the Box at some point. Would someone tell me how to go about this?
I have a regular Goodreads giveaway going on at the moment, if anyone is interested, and if anyone would like a review copy or Word file, please let me know.
Many thanks and hello to you all. The Girl in the Box by Sheila Dalton


message 23: by Amy Eye (new)

Amy Eye | 1841 comments Mod
Thanks for this, Sheila! I will put you on the list for the Creative Reviews Giveaway list!


message 24: by Amy Eye (new)

Amy Eye | 1841 comments Mod
OK, guys, I gotta ask....what will make you participate in these giveaways? We have some great books, but no one is really signing up for them. What would make YOU participate?

Thank you, Amy.
I'm too new to know why people aren't participating in the giveaways - but might it be because, like me, they are listed as regular giveaways first, or because it's hard to find the list?

I liked when you asked the odd ball questions... Gives people a chance to talk and get to know them better.
Plus, maybe a new thread for each one at the top to grab the attention


message 27: by Amy Eye (new)

Amy Eye | 1841 comments Mod
I had been doing that, and we had a few people here and there signing up and participating, but the giveaways weren't drumming up too many participants. I want to make sure that we are all having fun with it!

@ Sheila - i have a folder specifically for the CR giveaways, so I don't think it was too hard for people to find them. (at least I hope not!!) But it seemed people lost interest in them after a while. And I have LOADS of great authors with great books waiting to have their own giveaway!

How do we find that thread?


message 29: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Alan--
I will find it and leave a comment wich will bring it up on the main page. that should make it easier. lol.


message 30: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments I found it!!! The title of the thread is
Would you like to showcase your book in my giveaway?

Thanks, Cambria, but I'm still lost. It's the basic disorganized nature of blog sites that's making me crazy. Does this thread belong to a particular folder? Wouldn't it be nice if there were an FAQ list with step-by-step instructions for things like this?


message 32: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Yes, it is in a folder. The folder is titled
Read here first ---> Would you like to showcase your book in my giveaway?

If you go to the groups home page and on the right hand side there's a serch box to search for topics withing the group you can type the name of the topic or folder you are searching for. it should come up.

It would be nice to have an FAQ folder, i could use it myself! LOL.


message 33: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Thinking of getting a nice giveaway going since the holidays are around the corner. Maybe one this month and one next month...

Any ideas for the contests?

Thanks, Cambria. I also tried creating a giveaway through the "List giveaway" option and it won't let me add my books because it thinks they're only ebooks. That's actually not true but I have no idea how to convince the system that I have real books to give away. Apparently, once it finds the ebook on Amazon, it ignores all other versions, even though they're listed right after the ebooks. Any thoughts?


message 35: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Do you have the ISBN number for your paperback on your author page listed with the book?

I don't know too much about this but I have been looking into it because I am going to be setting up a giveaway for my upcoming release too. I do know that you can only do paperbacks.

I would make sure your ISBN numbers for the print versions are in the system. If that doesn't work I would email GR directly. If you scroll to the very bottom of the page in small wordning across the bottom there is a contact us or something like that there. I would email them and ask. I have emailed them a few times about some things on my author page and they always responded and usually did whatever i was having trouble with for me. It might take a day or so but they will respond.

I hope this helps. If i figure out anymore I will let you know!

Thanks again -- I solved this problem by copying the paperback ISBN directly from the Amazon listing into the giveaway setup form. Goodreads accepted that even though it didn't actually find the paperback in the search function.

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Awesome!!! Good problem solving!

Thank you so much! This is such an amazing day :0)


message 43: by Cambria (new)

Cambria (cambria409) | 3305 comments Yes, it is. :)


message 44: by Alan (new)

Alan Zendell (alanz) | 29 comments Amy or Cambria -- Are you still looking for additional giveaway items? I'd like to offer my new book, "Critical Focus". I can offer paperbacks or ebooks here, but the general Goodreads giveaway function won't accept them because the paperback isn't listed on Amazon yet. Please let me know and I'll respond quickly.
