Announcement: Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (February 8-12)

Literary Blog Hop February


The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is an event taking place from Saturday February 8th until (and including) Wednesday February 12th. If you are a book blogger and you’d like to give away a book to your readers, maybe to show your appreciation or because you have a special celebration, this is your chance to join up with others.

Most giveaway blog hops seem to be directed towards young adult and romance audiences. Those hops are not so ideal if you want to give away more literary books.

This will be the tenth Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (there are 3 per year). So far, it’s been a great success, with between 30 and 70 participating blogs every time. It’s time for the next one and I hope you’ll join in. The blog hops are in Feburary, June, and October.

More details:

This event is an opportunity to give away prizes and get more traffic to your blog. You will run your own giveaway (a blogpost on your own blog), but it will be linked up to all other participants via a links list. That way, not just your readers, but also the readers from the other participating blogs will stop by your blog.

You can offer one or more books, a gift voucher (for instance, to Amazon or Book Depository), or anything else related to books and reading. There is no minimum or maximum value that your prize should have.

The only restriction is that if you’re giving away a book, that it should have some literary merit. It does not have to be the most difficult classic ever, but please no romance, urban fiction or YA. Quality thrillers, poetry and non-fiction are fine, as are contemporary fiction, literary fiction and any other genres not in the categories above. If in doubt, please ask!

Authors are welcome to join in too. Please offer a physical copy of your book in the giveaway, or a choice between a physical copy and an e-copy.

Further information on the prizes: a book can be new or “gently read”. Your giveaway can be just for your country, for your continent, or word-wide. Offering a book via is a good way to make your giveaway world-wide (although not all countries are available) as it offers free postage.

Last day for signing up is February 4th!!. Only sign up if you intend to have a giveaway post up on your blog on February 8th.
