First of all, I wish to congratulate both bn100 and Elizabeth Haney for each winning a copy of the amazing new paranormal romance by Tori L. Ridgewood, WIND AND SHADOW.
bn100 is the winner of a signed print copy of this fabulous story courtesy of Tori but I've decided to award Elizabeth a digital copy just because she played as well. These two wonderful and loyal readers of Unwrapping Romance were the only ones, among everyone who visited, to enter and I do so appreciate them.
I feel I need to apologize to Tori for the low turnout. I truly do not understand the lack of interest. Folks, it was a chance at a FREE book. Not only a free book but one signed by the author, in print and in hand, and I truly don't understand the apathy.
I have made a decision based on the lack of interest in Giveaways I have offered in the past few months. Unless I hear from you, my readers, that you still desire me to run Giveaways, I will no longer be offering them whether the author offers them or not.
It takes a lot of time and effort to not only prepare for a giveaway but to promote it over the days following the post leading up to the time the giveaway ends. Not to mention follow up with the winner. With the lack of interest, I feel like I'm not only wasting my time promoting the giveaway but also feel it's discouraging for an author to see such a lack of interest.
Personally, I have better things to do. It takes time away from my reading and reviewing, and most importantly, away from my own writing. It's certainly making me think twice about promoting my book on Unwrapping Romance. I hoped to publish by Spring and was certainly willing to give away copies but if you're not interested in other authors' works, I don't know why you would be mine.
I'd like some feedback on this because the final word will be with you, my readers.
Giveaways or no Giveaways - you decide. Thank you.
Happy Reading Everyone!
