If you belong to a book club, I’m interested in donating books for your club to read/discuss.

There are some requirements and some info to keep in mind.

  • I can only do one book club a month
  • I won’t necessarily be doing this every month.
  • If your bookclub is selected,  members agree to review the book chosen, either on goodreads, Amazon, blogs (all is fine, a combination is fine…not every member needs to post reviews, etc but it needs to be more than just one member. )
  • I’m open to the idea of providing books internationally, but those books will likely have to be ebooks that are either from my epubs or my selfpub books.  This is for a variety of reasons, including DRM and shipping logistics.  I hope you understand. Please note, DRM is something I have no control over and I hope to see it die a natural death at some point in the near future.  But again, I have no control so please don’t be mad at me.
  • An online presence is helpful… goodreads, twitter, etc.  It doesn’t have to be a website/blog for the club itself, but if several of the members blog, tweet, etc and are up for discussing the book, that’s awesome.  The more, the merrier!
  • The book selection isn’t a free-for-all.  Some of my books are more readily available than others.  I’m willing to work to provide print or ebook (provided I have that option *note the info about DRM* but some books aren’t as easy to obtain in print as others.
  • It’s preferrable that if the book club doesn’t meet in person (ie; an internet book club) that the members be willing to take the book in ebook format, versus shipping books out to 15-20 different addresses.
  • I will handle the shipping.
  • There is a minimum of 5 members for a club to request sponsorship.
  • Please note that I’ll often post ‘calls’ on my blog and many of these will reference how many copies I have available, especially with print books.  If your group has 15 members and I’m promoting a print book and I only have 5 copies, it’s not going to work out.

Again, keep in mind, in exchange for me providing the books to the group, I do ask for some reviews…. good or bad, all I want is honest opinions and some word of mouth.

Groups that are open to ebooks are likely to be considered for ARCs, etc, too.  More and more ARCs are going the way of the digital, so please keep that in mind.

I even have a guinea pig…um, test group!  I was talking to Francesca who is a member of my street team. She’s a member of Book Obsessed Chicks and they are going to be reading STOLEN.

Are you a member of a book club?  If you have five or more members, please join my bookclub mailing list.  The mailing list is used to notify interested groups when there’s a book up for sponsorship.

Also, please note… this isn’t a contest. 😉  This isn’t a ‘odds are determined by number of entries’ and there isn’t anything needed to do to ‘enter’ per se.  I’m going to try and switch things around, be as fair as I can, but I can only provide so many copies.

A few things to keep in mind…

  • There must be five or more members.
  • Some books are limited in quantity, so please be sure to read the info provided before you request the book for your group.  If only ten copies are available and you have twenty members, another group will be selected.
  • Having a web presence isn’t necessary, but it is helpful.
  • If your group is chosen, your group agrees that they’ll read and review the book.  It’s not necessary that all members review, but a fair percentage is asked to post reviews.  By fair, I mean if the group has 10 members and only one reviews…not fair.
  • Please use the mailing list if you’re interested.  It will let me keep track of those who are interested.
