Sci-Fi & Fantasy authors only. No erotica, SFR or Paranormal Romance!
You may suggest a book from a well-known author. You cannot recommend your own book. The entire purpose of the promo is to get the attention of as many readers as possible. Household names and big brands will do that more effectively than lesser known indie authors. I reserve the right to choose a different book to the one you suggested, based on the overall collection of titles. The book must be available on Amazon.
Similar giveaway organisers often get the books sent to them first to take promo photos, but in order to avoid what may be two lots of insane shipping costs (and keep the cost of participation as low as possible), I will send the books directly to the winner from Amazon at the end. I will work on promo images with 3D covers, etc. See the previous giveaways for examples.
This promo will run for three months (May, June, July), and you are required to send the promo details to your existing subscribers at least once per month for the duration of the promo. So, you must send it to your list at least three times. This is to ensure the maximum exposure possible and the best results for all involved. I will send reminders each month. Failure to comply with this will result in you not receiving the list at the end, nor a refund.
You are also expected to share this giveaway on social media. I will arrange social media plugs and other promo efforts, including paid ads, to help. If you work with me on those, we can get some great results.
Note that while the aim is for 5-10k subscribers (which is very doable), there is no guarantee of that number. Rest assured, however, that I will push this like crazy -- and I expect everyone involved to do the same.
You will receive a .csv file with the subscriber list roughly one week after the giveaway ends. You will be assigned a date over a period of about two weeks to send your welcome email, to ensure readers are not overwhelmed by author emails all going out together.
