I give away books for several reasons. I like to make readers happy. What better way than to give them a signed copy of a book they'd like to read and maybe even keep.
I give away books to promote my next title. If you read my book and you like it, I'm hoping you'll want to read more of my novels.
I give away books to be able to interact with my readers. Maybe a reader will email me and let me know if they enjoyed the book. We can start a dialogue that helps me know my readers better and helps them know me.
I give away books hoping a reader will write a review. In the world of rate and review, I hope a reader will care enough to leave an honest review. Supposedly the more reviews, the better a book sells. I have as yet to see that, but I can hope!
I give away books at various venues to provide readers with multiple opportunities to win. I blog on different websites. I giveaway books on Goodreads. I give away books at my newsletter IN TOUCH (don't forget to sign up here: IN TOUCH with KAREN ROSE SMITH newsletter ) and from my blog and Facebook, too. If you check my Facebook Karen Rose Smith Author page: KRS Facebook Page, I do giveaways there often. My Caprice De Luca mystery series street team has contests as well as book giveaways.
I think the best reason I give away books is to thank my readers for supporting me in the many phases of my career. Now, as I add mysteries to my romance repertoire, I hope you will follow me into that genre, too.
I'm giving away 2 autographed print copies of ALWAYS DEVOTED at Goodreads: Goodreads Giveaway
