Let’s Talk Shall We?

Hey everyone, something’s been on my mind for a bit so…

Yesterday a post about an upcoming giveaway posted and I need to share an update on it.

I’ve never had any problems in regard to being a part of a group giveaway on Prolific Works until the most recent one.

I was sent an email on June 28th notifying me that my books had been removed from the A Different World: Protagonists of Color giveaway. Confused I asked the organizer in the comments section on the Group Giveaway details page.  I was told that I hadn’t promoted which wasn’t true because I had and I shared this information on the comments page. The response I received was a passive aggressive one that was directed to everyone which basically stated that if one didn’t promote during the promotion they would be permanently banned from all upcoming giveaways. This past week the organizer mentioned this again and another person commented that they had let time slip away from them and they would promote to which the organizer stated something along the lines that “The proof is in the pudding.” in regards to promoting.

Now these comments have been erased from the comment section by the organizer and I didn’t think to screenshot them at the time. However,  I do have screenshots of my promotion activities (I also have one last promo scheduled later today):

I’m not sure why the organizer acted this way, perhaps it was in response to the low numbers of downloads for each book in the giveaway. Also this what the organizer of each giveaway can see for the promotions that they do:

But even with this how can they tell who promoted and haven’t?

I don’t want to cause any trouble but I’m upset that I’ve been accused of not promoting when I have been.  I don’t have a huge following and I do my best promoting on here, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, and my mailchimp.  So while I highly disagree with the organizer’s actions and my books have been removed from the giveaway, I want to encourage you to download the ebooks featured in the giveaway.

Please remember to leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or Barnes and Noble once you’re finished reading.  The number of reviews a book receives affects its visibility on these sites, so if you want to support authors please leave a review! They appreciate it.

It’ll be a while before I do giveaways again. I don’t appreciate anyone falsely accusing me when I have proof that I’ve promoted.  Thank you for downloading my books and giving them reviews.

Until next time!
