What better way to help you indulge in books than a book giveaway?Photo of a tree with white blooms and a blue sky and the words "Book Giveaway April 2017."

My first book giveaway will be next week. Then I’ll give away a book every month thereafter. Anyone who’s subscribed to my newsletter by the monthly deadline is eligible to win. The deadline for the April giveaway is 11:59 p.m., Friday, April 7.

In this month’s sweepstakes, you can win a copy of Idaho by Emily Ruskovich. (By the way, my book review of Idaho will publish Saturday.)

Hosting a monthly book giveaway is one way I can say “thank you” to you for subscribing. And it aligns with this blog’s goal of helping you indulge in books.

Details are below. The gist is, subscribe now if you want to be eligible to win.

Book Giveaway – April 2017

Book cover of Idaho by Emily Ruskovich.

  • Prize: One copy of Idaho by Emily Ruskovich.
  • Drawing: The winner will be selected at random on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
  • How to enter: Subscribe to my newsletter by Friday, April 7, 2017. All subscribers to the newsletter as of 11:59 p.m., April 7, 2017, will be eligible to win.
  • Who can enter: Anyone in the United States who’s at least 18 years of age. (I would love to open the giveaway to readers outside the U.S. Unfortunately the legal complications of offering sweepstakes internally preclude my doing so at this time.)
  • Winner selection: The winner of the book giveaway will be chosen at random using random.org.
  • Winner notification: The winner will be notified using the email address they used when subscribing to my newsletter. The winner has 48 hours to respond to the winner notification email. After 48 hours, if the first winner of the book giveaway does not respond to the winner notification email, a second winner will be selected at random using random.org. The first winner will be ineligible to win in the second drawing. However, the first winner will be eligible to win the next month’s book giveaway provided they are subscribed to my newsletter as of the deadline to enter the following month’s sweepstakes.
  • Prize delivery: The book will be delivered through Amazon. The winner can select between three formats in which to receive the book: Kindle e-book, hardcover, or paperback. Format selection must be made within 48 hours of receiving the winning notification email. If format selection is not made within 48 hours of receiving the winning notification email, a second winner will be selected at random using random.org. The first winner will be ineligible to win in the second drawing. However, the first winner will be eligible to win the next month’s book giveaway provided they are subscribed to my newsletter as of the deadline to enter the following month’s sweepstakes.
