Question for you bloggers....

Okay, a few questions. I'm writing a proposal and need help.

Have any of you participated in a contest by an author to win a cover reveal on your blog? (be the first to reveal cover) Can you briefly describe the contest?


Have any of you participated in a contest by an author to win a book title reveal on your blog? (be the first to reveal book title) Can you briefly describe the contest?


Have any of you been contacted by an author or publicist to participate in a blog tour (they contact you)?


Thanks...any answers are helpful!

Happy Reading!

  1. I have been approached by someone on book blogs before about participating in a book blog tour. She asked me to email her, and I did, but never heard back. I assume that she either has my information stored somewhere, or, as I just posted a so-so review of a book, perhaps she got scared.

    Hope this helps!

  2. I have not participated in a contest to reveal a cover or title, however, I did participate in Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's contest to reveal their book trailer for Beautiful Darkness (which ReadingTeen won).

    The contest had points for a bunch of different things.Posting about it on your blog or facebook (or both) got you a certain amount of points, including the book site, twitter names, etc. in your post got you more points. Tweeting daily with certain @ mentions and # got you even more points.

    I think the total points were added up to get the winner, I do not believe that it was random. I would have liked it more if it was random and all the extra points gave you better chances. This contest was don't have a facebook? Oh, you loose.
