    On Hosting Book Giveaways

    A number of sites offer book giveaway hosting programs for building a following, which is a good promotional tool for helping to build your brand, if used wisely. Among these are:



    Both Early Reviewer giveaways and Member Giveaways


    While it is understood that there are many avenues for building a following, the promotional opportunities offered on AbsoluteWrite exist to help you our AWer authors promote your own published work and further your own writing careers.

    How to Promote Your Book Giveaway on AbsoluteWrite:

    • If you ARE the author of the book you are giving away, you would open a thread in Announcements, Events, and Book Promotion to promote your giveaway as usual. You may also place a link in your signature to your giveaway page on the hosting platform, if you wish.
    • If you are NOT the author of the book you are giving away, you may only place a link in your signature to your giveaway page on the hosting platform. Opening a thread in AE&BP is restricted to promoting only your own published work.

    A NOTE: Signature spam is, indeed, a thing. If you are unsure whether a link you wish to place in your signature is appropriate, do contact your friendly neighborhood mod or AW administration. We're always happy to help you sort out anything you're unsure about.

    As always, please do let me know if you have any questions or need any help.
