Cover Madness Giveaway Hop Sign Up

Posted by

When Jenni of Alluring Reads and I got together to do a team giveaway we never thought it would get so popular. To this day those giveaways are the ones who have gotten the most entries and pageviews of all the giveaways I’ve ever posted on this blog. If you’re not familiar with the giveaway you can have a look here. Basically what it is, is we find a bunch of fabulously covered upcoming books (we try to find recently revealed covers) and we throw a giveaway for a chance to win a pre-order of one of the pretties! We’ve done 3 very successful Cover Madnesses so far, and for the 4th we decided to invite you all along as well!

So this is the dealio:

  • Sign ups will stay open for 6 weeks, to close on July 1st at 8:00AM EST
  • The hop will run for 2 weeks from July 1st to July 14th, 2013
  • Your giveaway post must be live by July 1st at 8:00AM EST (you may post up to 24hrs early)
  • When your post is live, the linky will be updated with your direct post link.
  • Your post must include the linky (or a link to either mine or Jenni‘s giveaway post where the linky will be located)
  • You may handle your giveaway as you wish as far as how you collect entries and choose a winner (you may have more than 1 winner if you wish).

What you give away:

Through Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, or any other means, you find your favorite newly covered book(s) to feature in this giveaway. You can pick just 1 book, or you can pick 30 and let the winner choose–that is up to you. The book cover must have been out for no longer than 6 weeks at the start of the giveaway. This means the winner will most likely be winning a pre-order of the book (we recommend using The Book Depository as it’s free to ship anywhere, but you can use Amazon or any book seller, or you can wait until the book is released, buy it locally, and ship it to your winner).

Here is an example of how me and Jenni have done it in the past, feel free to follow the same format.

    Just curious about e-books. Does it have to be a physical book or can we do ebook versions? The reason I ask is I’m a big fan of Indie books and the majority of them are ebook only.
