Announcement: Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (November 1-5)



The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is an event taking place from Saturday November 1st until (and including) Wednesday November 5th. In this blog hop, we bloggers are giving away books to our readers! Just for fun!

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 is the ninth Literary Giveway Blog Hop! There are three per year. They’re always very popular with lots of books for grabs and lots of people visiting the participating blogs.

Sign up now if you want to give away a book or something bookish to your readers. You will run your own giveaway, 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.

The book you’re offering has to 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.

Last day for signing up is October 29th. Only sign up if you intend to have a giveaway post up on your blog on November 1st. I will send you an email with more information and the full linky list on October 30th.



Copy the image to put the button on your blog (e.g., in your sidebar and/or in a blog post), so you can advertise the Blog Hop and attract more participants to make this a big event and/or tell your readers about the event coming up.
