Have you heard of LibraryThing? If not, LibraryThing is a website similar to GoodReads where readers can review books, interact with authors, and more. It is free to sign up as a member.
One of the neat features of LibraryThing is they allow members to conduct eBook giveaways. Unlike GoodReads where you have to give away print copies of your book, on LibraryThing, you are able to give away eBooks.
I like this feature as it allows authors to conduct giveaways with no out of pocket expense. You can give away Smashwords 100% coupons or create eBook files to give away (i.e. PDF, epub and/or mobi files).
If you create your own files, you can either attach them to an e-mail or upload them to your hosting and give the reader a download link. However, you can also conduct a print book or audiobook giveaway as well. [Read more…]
