posticon Dorelle's Journey - Goodreads Giveaway!


I'm giving away five signed print copies of "Dorelle's Journey", through a Goodreads Giveaway. Worldwide.

You need to be a member of Goodreads, obviously, and you have to tell them your address. I will only see the addresses of the five winners.

Here's the ]Giveaway.

I'm excited! emoticon emoticon emoticon

It ends on May 10th, btw.

It does!

It's running until Sunday this week, and over 700 people have signed up for it. That's unbelievable - and awesome. I think it is possible to crack 1,000 sign-ups. And I really hope that some of those people will go and buy the book if they do not win it.

At any rate, that means a lot of people have actually seen it, and are aware of it now. Which is exactly what this giveaway is supposed to do.

Re: Dorelle's Journey - Goodreads Giveaway!


I just watched the final countdown to it. As it ended at midnight, Pacific time, it was 9am here. emoticon

The results are staggering:
- 1488 people signed up for the giveaway
- 707 added "Dorelle's Journey" to their reading list
- two new ratings already

The five winners are from the EU, Israel and India. Those are all countries that are usually excluded in Goodreads Giveaways, and I feel justified on going worldwide. I'm actually quite happy my books are going to those countries.

I'm hoping that some sales will come in now that the giveaway has ended. At any rate, this is awesome exposure.

I'll have to sell about 100 ebooks to make back the investment. Of course, it's hard to attribute sales to any marketing activity, but if sales actually go up significantly this month, it'll be partly because of this. Since I'm releasing the sequel later this month, it won't be entirely clear.

It is quite exciting, but I'm not sure if I'll repeat it with the second book in the series. That just doesn't feel right.
