YA Indie Giveaway!! Books for free and how to get them.

Freebies!! Everyone loves freebies. Free books are always a hit and this week the YA will be discussing freebies and giveaways and be offering some great books for free too.
So why would authors consider giving away their books for nothing? There are some organisations and individuals who don’t believe that books ought to be given away for free at all.
I believe free books can do a number of things. First, giving free books, as either E book or paperback to faithful readers, is a great way to say thank you. A signed copy will make that connection personal and help connect to a reader. Free books are also a great way to introduce your work to prospective followers benefiting both the writer and reader. Offering books to celebrate milestones; for instance the first 50 or 100 likes on Facebook, shares the occasion.
There is a provision on Amazon which allows Prime Members to borrow a book without charge. And best of all to make a review if you chose to review the book; which is something an author hopes for as it increases the book’s profile and it give the writer valuable feedback.
You can find free books on sites such as iCraveFeebies or, or
There are book giveaways at LibraryThing where members who are requested to make a nominal fee to join, request books donated by a variety of authors. If they ‘win’ the book then they are encouraged to review though there is no obligation to do so.
Then there is This is a place where member readers choose a book from a list of books donated by authors in either Ebook or printed book format. The reader is then expected to write a review and post it on the site within 6 weeks. For an author it is an invaluable aid to test how the book may be received by their target audience. And for the Reader? Well it offers an unlimited supply of free books in the genre they enjoy and an opportunity to tell the author exactly how they feel about the work! Wins all round!
YA are holding a great raffle which includes The Lost Sorcerer and the first book in the Dragon World series The Bonding Crystal so what you waiting for? Enter and see just what you can win!
