At the end of August, Fiction Writers Review launched a Fan Page on Facebook. The goal is threefold: to introduce new readers to FWR, to create an informal place for conversations about writing, and also to give away lots of free books.
Each week we’ll give away several free copies of a featured novel or story collection as part of our Book-of-the-Week program. All you have to do to be eligible for our weekly drawing is to be a fan of our Facebook page. No catch, no gimmicks. And once you’re a fan, you’ll be automatically entered in each subsequent drawing.
Last week we featured The Wilding, by Benjamin Percy, and we’re pleased to announce the winners: Dan Albergotti, Jim Carmin, and Jon Tribble. Congratulations! Each will receive a signed, first-edition of Ben’s book.
This week we’re featuring Dzanc’s Best of the Web 2010, edited by Kathy Fish and Matt Bell. In his recent review of the collection for FWR, Michael Rudin writes, “The stories are smart, but they’re also just so damn cool—collected works less concerned about molds and reputations than expanding our understanding of what literature—online or otherwise—can achieve.” Read the full review, with infographics, here.
If you’d like to be eligible for this week’s drawing (and all future ones), please visit our Facebook Page and “like” us. As we did last week, we’ll be giving away three, signed copies of this title. To everyone who’s already a fan, thanks for supporting this project. What we want to do is not only find ways to expand our readership, but also to put books we love in the hands of readers.
So please help us spread the word!
