So instead of a regular discuss post today, I thought I would use this opportunity to brain storm some ideas for how prizes will be given out for my 2012 reading challenges.
My original plan is to have a prize every month to be given to one random person who linked up a review. The end of year prizes will be given to one random person from each level who completed their original goal. This is all contingent on how many prizes I line up.
Does this sound like a good idea? Do you have any other idea for prize awarding?
I will admit that the whole reason I am thinking about this now is because I got an email from an author offering up her entire 7 (soon to be 8) book library as a prize for the Self-Published Reading Challenge. How cool is that? I obviously jumped at her offer, but realized that I had no plan yet for how the prizes will work. Hence this post.
I hear you asking which author? Heather Wardell. Not only is she self-published, she’s also Canadian. And her first book is available free on Smashwords and Amazon. I haven’t read any of her books yet, but you can be sure I will now.
Also, a small note: If you’re an author and want to donate a prize, send me an email, and I’ll do another little happy dance.
