The first Goodreads giveaway is going out the door. I ran it for a week and 761 people registered to win an autographed copy of Scourge of the Betrayer. Which, considering I edited the copy midstream and Goodreads took a day to approve things, haven’t run an ad on Goodreads yet, and nobody knows me from Adam or Abdul, seems like a pretty decent number.
So, congrats to Laeser Tyburn—I hope you enjoy the book!
People might not *completely* judge a book by its cover, but it can certainly intrigue or turn people off in 2.5 seconds. I know how fortunate I am in having a kickass, uber-awesome cover–it can only help drum up interest for the book. I’ve heard horror stories of authors hating the covers their publisher came up with, so hats off to Night Shade Books.
I’ll be running another giveaway here shortly. Stay tuned.
