Well hello there guys and dolls, readers and cheerleaders, and LOVELIES! Prizes are hella fun, so it’s that time of year when we ask for PRIZE DONATIONS!
Why do we ask for donations?
We expect close to 1,000 participants, we try to give away prizes every hour, AND we want to make sure that there are more prizes than we need so that no one has to settle for something they don’t really want.
What should I donate?
You can donate whatever is within your means! This year we’re trying to streamline our prizes behind the scenes so we’re more focused on e-gifts and prize “packs.” Less shipping (and potential flaking out) for everyone!
Here are some ideas:
- A gently-used book or bundle (say, a pack of 3 or 5 YA or mysteries or sci-fi or fantasy or whatever)
- A small pack of ARCs you’re finished with
- E-gift card
- A bookmark bundle
- Something handmade
- A puppy! (maybe not)
Honoring international participants!
For additional ease, and to honor our bevy of international participants, we like to put special emphasis on donations via BookDepository.com. For example, you might offer a book of the winner’s choice for $15 (or euros) or less. This is a really easy option since you simply have the prize shipped to the winner BookDepository! It’s low-stress and less work for you! We get a lot of prizes donated from publishers, but the US ones (the majority) are often unable to ship internationally.
The last step!
All you need to do is fill out this form. I don’t know if we’ll have time to email to confirm your donation, but please know that if you fill out this form, your prize will be included!
