Eleven best-sellling authors have teamed up to celebrate summer with giveaways of books! Why would authors giveaway books?
I’m glad you asked. The answer is three-fold.
Authors want readers to discover their work and giveaways encourage readers to read books by authors they might not have heard of yet. The theory is similar to what drug dealers use–the first one’s free. Once a reader is hooked by the fresh voice, memorable characters, and stunning storytelling, the reader will buy other works by that author. Remember the last time you found a book you loved so much you bought everything you could find by that author?
Reading addiction is real.
Authors giveaway books to get reviews. Sure, authors can pay for reviews, but genuine, heart-felt reviews are the best advertising. It’s also called word-of-mouth advertising. Your friends and family know how much you love reading, so they look to you when they want to know what’s worth reading.
Your review on Amazon, Goodreads, BookBub, or other sites help more readers discover new voices in fiction. Goodreads is like Facebook, but for book lovers.
Your social media post naming an author and title of a book helps your friends and family discover new voices in fiction. Posting the cover image is always a plus!
Authors giveaway books is to build their newsletter outreach. If you like the book, you will be notified when the next book by this author comes out. Some authors ask readers to help with choosing cover art or naming characters. You can unsubscribe to a newsletter at any time. Newsletters are also used to announce other giveaways and ARCs (Advance Reader Copies) which are given to reviewer/bloggers and select fans.
So, if you’ve been searching for mysteries, suspense, and thrillers without vulgar language or erotica–download one or all of the books offered by these Christian authors.
