Lyn Cote--A Question for You: Why Do Authors and Publishers

giveaway books on blogs? I've posed this question and 5 others on my personal blog. Drop by my blog today or tomorrow and reply to the questions in my survey and be entered in a mysterious drawing. Deadline Sunday night. Drop by my blog. Strong Women Brave Stories!


  1. Because it adds a tremendous amount of publicity and there is always the chance that the people who didn't win the contest for the book will just go ahead and buy, like I have!


  2. Personally, I believe it is a wonderful way to market their books to people who may have never read something by a particular author. I know I have read many, many reviews on books that have been written by authors that I have either never heard of or never gave a second thought about. I have won some wonderful books by some of those same authors and now the authors are on my "can't wait to see what they write next" list. I have also bought some of the books that are hosted on giveaways because they just look and sound so good.
