I set up a book giveaway on Goodreads. It's a paperback copy of Kongomato. Unfortunately I only gave it a two week period. Then two days later a very nice lady from Goodreads emailed me and suggested that I make it one month. Fair enough I thought, and tried to change it.
My give-away is pending, which means I can't get to the appropriate page. Thus I can't change it because it's pending and it won't stop pending until I do as she asks.
Ah-ha, I thought; why not start another give-away with the time she requested.
Nope, the computer gleefully informs me, there's already a give-away for that book, and that I should change it. But I can't - because its pending!!! and because it's pending...blah blah blah.
In a completely different conversation, we at the Ink-Slingers league are going to begin a newsletter giving tips, and whatever news we hear about the writing biz. I'm going to give it away there, and if I have to I'll walk all the way to whichever country houses the person who wants it.
There has to be someone, right?
