On May 3, on Goodreads, I offered nine free signed paperback copies of my novel A Bridge to Treachery to anyone who wanted to read it. My motivation was to increase reader exposure to the book in hopes that this would result in increased sales and reviews. The offer was good until June 3. The cost to me was about $15 per book including shipping. I also advertised on GR at a total cost of about $65. The offer resulted in 650 readers indicating that they would take me up on it. About 60 readers added “Treachery” to their “to read shelf”. I shipped the books to the “winners” of the GR random selection of 9 readers out of the 650 interested on June 4. So far, I have had one of the lucky nine post a review, and one reader from among the unlucky post a rating on GR. There is some indication that the Kindle Edition of the book got a small sales bump at Amazon, but there have been no reviews there that I can attribute to the giveaway. I have no idea how much time I should allow before I can realistically expect to get more reviews. I will see if sales of the paperback edition got a bump when I get my next quarterly royalty check from Brighton Publishing LLC.
