This looks like it will be a fun way to spread awareness of book piracy and also a good way to get some exposure and introduce yourself to new readers. All genres are welcome!
Maegan Provan is organizing a blog hop to raise awareness of book piracy. To participate authors can donate prizes for the three prize baskets (these can be paper back books, book marks, ink pens, magnets, or even ebooks or coupons – anything you can think of!) and/or they can sign up to write post on their blog. Maegan will sort out the dates for posts (or you can always request a date) and provide a sample post you can use (talk about super easy!), though it would be even better if you added a little something to it to make it your own. Her suggestion is to share your first run-in with piracy and how it affected you. To post a blog you do NOT need to donate a prize, and vice versa. You can do one or both. It’s totally up to you!
If you’d like to sign up, please check out the Facebook group Authors and Bloggers Against Piracy. There you can find the sign ups for prize donations and for blog posts, as well as more information. The sign up deadline is August 31st, and prizes need to be delivered to Maegan by October 15th (For digital prizes she will message you the winner’s email).
The more authors and bloggers who sign up for blog posts, the more exposure we will each get as we bring our fans into the fun and give them a chance to win some amazingly cool prize baskets. (I’ve seen the sign up list so far, and each one is already guaranteed at least four signed books from different authors). If you have any questions you can ask them here, or in the Facebook Group.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Thanks for this. This is an important topic to highlight.
Thanks! Hope you get a chance to check out out. Maegan had worked really hard on getting this set up and I’m hoping it will be successful with plenty of participation. 🙂
I hope it’s a success and I will sign up when I get chance.
This looks brilliant! Just maybe I’ll sign up too. 🙂
We’d love to have you!
