  1. I’m looking forward to this! May I offer several copies of my book (e.g., 1 paperback, 3 e-books)? Does the limit of 6 entries refer to the giveaway tool? Should I post the giveaway on December 5th, or before that? As you can see, I have a few questions! 🙂 Thanks for your help–this should be fun.


  2. I am so glad you asked!!! You can give away as many copies of the book as you like!!! The limit of 6 entries refers to the giveaway tool. I find that if you make people do more entries than that it turns them away. You should post on Dec. 5th, but it you are ready the day before that is fine too! Let me know if you have any other questions!!!!

  5. Please tweet me a reminder — I am hosting a full month of featuring Indie Writer’s in November running concurrent to my Sci Fi November Features & Reviews! I am launching the posts about both events before the weekend — slightly behind as October ended on a migraine 😦 I very much want to support the authors who will be featured on this blog hop so please don’t forget to tweet remind me! You’d be surprised what I forget — and I have a heap of notes to keep me in the loop! lol

    Indie Writers rock my world! 🙂 I hosted a LIVE author Q&A tonight for two hours on my blog (the comment threads are open still for comments & Qs for the author) — it was such a wicked convo! We talked about the book series itself as much as Indie Pub experiences and the challenges of getting your book not only published but out in shoppes & libraries! Truly stimulating! I am hoping more visitors will ask new questions throughout November. Meanwhile, I simply wanted to say — I cannot wait for your hop!


    • Thanks so much for your support, Jorie!!! It really means a lot to me and the Indie authors who are participating! They work so hard and I am glad to see these events that support them! Indie authors rock my world too. I will let everyone know about your conversation as well, sounds like a great idea/event.

  7. Hi, I added my link but I didn’t see where to list the giveaway items. Are you doing a single rafflecopter for the whole blog hop or do you want us to each do our own on our site?
