Book Give-aways

Post by Admin on Mon Mar 04, 2013 7:13 pm

Hopefully once the forum gets going, we'll have some authors who are willing to share copies of some of their books?
So check back from time to time to get in on some free stuff. 8)

With Andi's and Jove's permission I'm posting about a Book Give-away over at Women and Words

Carsen Tate is offering a copy of her book Battle Axe which will be released in May.
It’s a contest, and the rules are really easy. All you have to do is leave a comment on this very blog. Make sure to include your email address in the system when you do so I can find you if you win. Enter by midnight CST on Tuesday, April 9th.

Two different books involved here.

First, my sixth anthology for Cleis Press is coming out soon, and the publisher is offering a free copy on Goodreads and another one on Library Thing. Here are the links:

http://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/50138-wild-girls-wild-nights-true-lesbian-sex-stories

http://www.librarything.com/work/13821151

Yes, the book's title is Wild Girls, Wild Nights: True Lesbian Sex Stories. As with all my books, I like to think that it's better than you'd expect it to be, but then I would, wouldn't I.

Second, tomorrow (May 17) I'm participating in a Blog Hop Against Homophobia and Transphobia, and part of the deal is that each blogger offers a prize. Mine is a copy of my alter-ego Connie Wilkins's anthology Time Well Bent: Queer Alternative History from Lethe Press. This one isn't even erotica! Well, mostly. To be entered in the drawing, which takes place on May 27th, all you have to do is comment on my blog site, http://sacchi-green.blogspot.com. It would be so nice to get some comments that aren't from "Anonymous" trying to get me to link to someplace that sells knock-off Gucci bags or Nike shoes!

Actually, there's a Third, which is that I'll be running a blog tour for my book from about June 5th to June 27th, and that will involve a free book drawing, as well. And I think I'll be guest blogging on Women and Words on June 11th, which means yet another free book.

Edited to say that I seem to have screwed up the links, but of course you can see that for yourselves.
Edited by Elaine to clean up the links. Then edited again to clean up my own mess.

Sacchi, I'm sure we're all willing to "comment" to try to win a free book, but won't you miss the Gucci bag ad??? LOL LOL LOL

Oh, the Gucci bag folks will still be posting anonymously--and very obviously not reading my post at all. If you keep checking you can surely catch one of those before I see it and delete it, so don't give up hope of a "real" Gucci bag! Or even Coach, once in a while.

Hey Sacchi, I tried to enter over goodreads to win Wild Girls Wild Nights but I got this message:

This book giveaway is open to members in only the following countries: US.

So I commented on your blogspot site. Smile

Good! My publisher put up the Goodreads contest, and when I tried to offer more myself the form wouldn't go through because there was already a drawing listed. I don't mind shipping books abroad.

Just how much can I get away with here? Well. here goes. i'm having a 22-day blog tour for Wild Girls, Wild Nights, and today is Day 2. Check out Miel Rose's review of "The Daddy I Didn't Know I Needed" by Angel Propps from yesterday, and Destiny Moon's contribution about her own "The Corruption of the Innocent Pornographer"today, and on and on. The list of links (mostly, but not all, for my page) are on the bottom of each post. Post a comment, however short, on any or all days of the tour to be entered in a drawing for one of three free copies. You can post once on each day,and be entered multiple times At the moment there aren't as many different commenters as there are copies of the book being offered! (We don't count anonymous spams for Gucci ripoffs. I get rid of those as soon as I can.) Yes, I'll ship to the other side of the world, if necessary.

Reaching Out

Drat, I think I screwed up the link again. It seems to disappear when I post. http://sacchi-green.blogspot.com. You can figure it out. Typing on a jouncing train is no treat, although having the wifi is.

[Edited by Elaine to fix the hyperlink. Your blog is weird. For the url code, you need the http:// but the full link (in the last para) with it doesn't work. Very odd. Anyway, click on Reaching Out and that works now.)

Just thought I'd mention that at least a couple of folks here might be interested in today's Wild Girls Blog Tour and Book Giveaway post, since it's from a writer in Germany, Catherine Paulssen, recalling her early, defining experiences there twenty years ago. She sent me her post to share on my blog.

And here I go again. Tomorrow, June 11 (pretty nearly today!) I'm guest blogging on Women and Words, and commenting on that post will get you entered for a free book drawing separate from the one I've been droning on about. Same book, although I'm quite willing to substitute any one of my other anthologies for anyone from here.
