Attention science fiction nerds!!
Do you like reading science fiction with a dash of romance thrown in? Well, if so, I have a fun surprise that I’d like to share with you. (If not, the holidays are just around the corner and if you win, you’d have your presents already done!)
To celebrate the end of fall, I’ve teamed up with more than 60 lovely science fiction romance authors to give away a huge collection of novels, PLUS a Kindle Fire to one lucky winner!
You can win my novel FINDING HEKATE, plus books from authors like Sharon Lynn Fisher and Veronica Scott.

Last week I got a box of books of Finding Hekate fresh off the press! I’m pretty excited about it because 1) three of them went to Another Read Through, a local bookstore here in Portland, so that means I have books in TWO BOOKSTORES and that’s pretty badass, and 2) it means I can do some more giveaways! I’ve been brainstorming this week about things that I could do and thus far I’ve come up with this (keep in mind: these are still pretty new):
Doing a Twitter Hashtag Event (3 books)
- In order to share the love of science fiction books, where people share their favorite science fiction books and I’ll pick the top three at random that Saturday?
- Possible (mostly unused) hashtags
- #FavoriteSciFiStory (?)
- #SciFiStorytellers (?)
Goodreads Giveaway or create an event on Goodreads? (1 book)
- Research how the heck to do this…
Donate one to the Queer Resource Center (PSU) and the In Other Words Feminist Society (2 books)
Join together with a bunch of other authors to do a giveaway to support others and make it more of an event? (1 book each…or more?)
- Science fiction only? A #ShootToTheStars Giveaway!
- super easy way to enter – just put in your email address into a Google form?
- Then I’d link it to the other authors?
- Who would I ask to join?
- How do I start doing this?
Do something for National Coming Out Day (Oct. 11)? (1 book)
So…yeah, as you can see, I’m still in the hashing-things-down stage of this. I’m going to reach out to some authors to see the kinds of giveaways and such they’ve tried. What worked and what didn’t. It’s been a fun process! I’m probably not going to giveaway all of them but doing a few of these ideas might increase my overall readership and fanbase. 🙂
Fellow creatives: What have you done-giveaway wise-that’s worked in the past?
I hope you’re having a lovely day!
I meant to do something productive today since my finals are over for the term. I meant to do more Write to Publish 2016 stuff. I meant to do more brainstorming on marketing and cover ideas for Finding Hekate. I meant to work on my stories, my second story for FH, my fanfiction, my other original works. I meant to do things for Ooligan Press.
But did I?
I got caught in a spiral of watching Geek and Sundry‘s Critical Role series instead. (Watch it live or on YouTube.) This D&D show is AMAZING! I’ll do all that other stuff tomorrow…
Please, let me know in the comments if you’ve ever gotten sucked into something so hard that it negated your responsibilities for the day. If so, what was it? If not, how do you resist such a wonderful temptation?
Also, A HUGE THANK YOU to all my followers. I just hit 200, and that’s kind of amazing to me.
