Stay Home and Read Author Giveaway Sign Up

Authors, has your book event been canceled? So many people are impacted by the crisis happening around the world, and we would like to invite you to participate in our group author giveaway. It's called the Stay Home and Read Event! This is for all authors, no matter when your book was published or whether you had an event canceled or not. We'd love you all to join in!

Here are the details:
  • The giveaway starts April 13th and will last until May 3rd. Our ideal deadline for authors to sign up is March 31st, but if you sign up a few days after, that's still fine.
  • All authors participating in the giveaway will be included in an email newsletter about the giveaway sent to 49,000 subscribers and promoted on our social media accounts.
  • We will be hosting the giveaway via Rafflecopter. You can promote up to 3 social media accounts (which will be added as extra entry options). You can also add an email newsletter for readers to sign up for your newsletter.
  • There is a fee of $50 to participate. $10 of this fee will go directly to the grand prize giveaway of an Amazon Gift Card.
  • There will be 3 winners of the giveaway, so be prepared to send out at least three books to the winners.

  1. Nicole--I think this is a great way to make lemonade out of lemons. I feel sorry for authors who had book signings scheduled, or book launches.

    However, maybe everything about this time isn't lemons. Certainly, the deaths, the illnesses, the risk that essential workers face, the isolation and loneliness many people are experiencing... that's horrible. However, we're learning (or relearning) how to communicate with each other and entertain ourselves in different ways. For example, my daughter and her family are having late-night concerts with spoons and harmonicas and a cajon. They're watching "classic" movies that I've forced on them, like "Fried Green Tomatoes" and "The Sting" and "The Widow of Saint-Pierre." People who normally wouldn't touch technology are learning how to Skype and Zoom. People who haven't had the time to do certain things like flood agents with queries (names are left out to protect the guilty) now have the time.

    I wish all the authors good luck. I am also doing some extra reading, and I know that once we're all safe to go to events, we'll show up in mobs to book signings and author events... because we're hungry for the experience, because wes're supportive and because we want to make up for lost time.

    I wish the author

  2. I am so excited to participate in this because it helps WOW! and it helps authors, and it helps readers. :) I love WOW! and I can't think of a better place to spend a little money to promote reading and books. :)

  3. Is the "$50 to participate" for the authors?

  4. Hi Eugenia! Yes, that fee to participate is for the authors only. :)


We love to hear from readers! Please leave a comment. :)
