Hi everyone! Yes, it’s happening again! After getting a few comments on how fun this hop was last year we decided it was time to plan another! Whooo! If you’re not familiar with the Cover Madness giveaways we’ve been doing for a while now you can have a look here. Basically 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 6 very successful Cover Madnesses so far, which includes one hop like this that had 60 participating blogs!
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, 2014
- 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 the giveaway post on Xpresso Reads where the linky will be displayed)
- You may handle your giveaway as you wish as far as how you collect entries and choose a winner (you may also 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 a bunch and let the winner choose–that is up to you. The book cover(s) must have been out for no longer than 2 months 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.
Want to participate in this awesome? Sign up below with your blog name and who your giveaway will be open to (Example: Xpresso Reads (INTL) and an email will be sent a few days ahead as a reminder and with the linky code, etc.
If you have any questions, ask away in the comments!
After you’ve signed up, Tweet/Facebook about it so more people can join!

Oh yay! I’m glad to see this. I was just looking for a giveaway hope to join this past weekend because I feel like I haven’t done one in ages, so I got excited when I saw this. It’s like you read my mind! 😀
Thanks for hosting, you guys! 🙂

I’d love to be part of it too, and I will most probably enter, but I feel uncertain about what can I giveaway… However, that’s a problem for LATER…
Thanks for the beautiful Hop! :))
Tammy @ Books Bones & Buffy
Cool idea for a hop! Thanks for hosting this again:-)
Micheline @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews
YAY! I was hoping you ladies would get together and host this hop for all of us again 😀 I was already planning for a giveaway around July myself so this works out perfectly! Thanks Giselle & Jenni xxxx

This sounds like a lot of fun! I already have a few recent covers that were revealed in mind, but unfortunately this hop happens right around my wedding so I won’t be able to participate this time around. I’ll be sure to check-out some of the giveaways though when I get back from my honeymoon. 😀

I haven’t participated in a Giveaway hop in quite awhile. Looking forward to participating in this one!
This should be a fun one! I hope you’re planning to send out reminders though, I have a tendency to forget about hops. 🙁 I’m all signed up though!
Can it be an ARC?
Yeah if you have one that has a newly revealed cover 🙂
How would I know if it is newly released? the book isn’t out until Sept.
If the cover has been on Goodreads for a while it’s not newly released. The basis of this giveaway is to show off newly released book covers that you like and you give one of the books featured to a winner. The cover has to have been released no more than a couple of months.
I would love to join this cover hop giveaway, seems so much fun. One question though, does it have to physical books or can it also be e-books you can give away?
It can be e-books if you like yeah, just make sure that it’s clear that it’s not a print copy on the post/Rafflecopter. And maybe a good idea put from where (Amazon/B&N) so people will know if it will work with their reader. Glad to have you on board, Athena! 🙂
This sounds like so much fun!! I’ve not done a giveaway on my blog before, and this sounds like the perfect one to start me off. Looking forward to it!
Is there any “cover madness giveaway” art to grab to put on our blogs? I am crafting my post now.
Not yet I haven’t had a chance to design one but there will be. I’ll be sending it over when I send the reminder email to everyone before the giveaway starts, so you can just add it on 🙂
