Win a free book!
I have a lot of author friends who have contest to give away free books to promote their new book. Sometimes an author will ask me to read his or her book to write a review and help spread the word. I love helping others in this way. It’s fun, and it’s a great way to keep up with the changing market by knowing what is getting published.
There are tons of the contest going on to win free books. Some authors team up and give away a whole bunch of books to one lucky winner. So many times I am tempted to enter the contests, and then ask myself if the book, or books, is something I would normally read. I know the hard work that goes into writing a book and getting it published. Somewhere along the line it is costing money to give the book away for free. Why should I build a collection of books that I probably will never read? If I don’t read them, it is a waste of time and money for whoever is behind the contest.
Do you enter a contest just to be a winner?
