Book giveaways are an essential part of book marketing and it’s best if you set them up before the book is even published. Our favorite two places to setup a giveaway is GoodReads and LibraryThing. GoodReads is now owned by Amazon.com and they allow giveaways only for physical books. LibraryThing is independently owned and allows giveaways for physical and e-books. It sounds strange but giving away a few books helps sales by exposing your book to more potential readers who may purchase when they don’t win. Check both of these sites out to see if they will work for your books!
