A FUN Giveaway for Readers ~ A Terrific Builder Promo for You!
Signup for this promo and find multiple ways to attract readers to your books as we gather a fabulous gift basket of swag, treats, paperback books, gift cards, and other goodies to award to one lucky winner.
You’ll have three ways to connect with readers.
- Select a task button for yourself in the giveaway Rafflecopter from eight choices total, including newsletter subscribers, BookBub follows, Facebook visits, website visits, and more.
- Showcase one of your books priced 2.99 or less in the book fair that runs concurrently and has its own separate giveaway (optional, no extra charge. FREE books are welcome).
- Contribute an item to a group gift basket that will go to the giveaway’s grand prize winner, and have your name hot-linked to your Amazon page in the list of prizes for the basket.
The event runs March 1-22. All romance genres and genres with romantic elements are welcome. All heat levels are welcome.
How the Gift Basket Theme Works
All participating authors are welcome to contribute a prize for the basket. No one is required to contribute, but those who do will be listed on the giveaway page as basket sponsors, with their prize listed, and a link to their author page on Amazon. Other authors will be listed as general sponsors but will not have an Amazon link unless that’s the option they choose for their task button.
The idea is to build excitement with a basket that will guarantee the winner a flood of wonderful little packages mailed to their door once the giveaway is over. You can contribute swag, candy, jewelry, a trinket, a paperback copy of one of your books (sorry, no ebooks in the basket), a small gift card, etc. What you choose is up to you. It is your responsibility to pay for it and you must commit to mailing it to a U.S. winner once the giveaway is over.
In the event Rafflecopter chooses an international winner, you are welcome to, but not obligated to ship internationally. Instead, Bookwrapt will supply any international grand prize winner with a gift card of commiserate value. Bookwrapt will also be contributing to the basket, and provide runner-up prizes for the giveaway.
