Goodreads Ad and Giveaway

As an experiment, I’m running an ad and a book giveaway on Goodreads for Matcher Rules. The ad and the giveaway will run for a month, I have 10 copies to give away, and it looks as if whatever happens I will be mailing out all ten, since 67 people have already signed up in the first few hours. As far as I know, Goodreads waits until the end of the giveaway period and then randomly picks 10 names out of the entire list, so it’s not first come, first serve.

Right now, as an author who would like to get reviews and more readers, I’m more interested in the ad response. I cannot wait to see how the statistics break out. This should be fascinating.

Either way, this is a welcome break from the recording and editing and sound mixing and tagging of the podcast episodes of The Bone Road. I’ve completed 12 episodes out of a projected 30, so I have a long way to go.
