I didn't start a blog to get free books, in fact it never occurred to me that free books/ARCs/etc were even an option. I don't get a lot of ARC offers but I have recently received a bit of a rash of them in the following ways:
- Requests from authors
- Requests from publishers
- Gifts of a book through Amazon from an author (with the offer to buy something else if I don't want her book)
Some of the books sound good to me, but many are books that aren't in my areas of interest. So here are my questions:
- Do you respond to all the people that contact you about book offers?
- What do you say if you aren't interested at all in the book being offered?
- Do you cash in the Amazon offer with another book if you aren't interested in the one being offered?
- Any other tips for me?
Thank you very much!
