Writers and Publishers:

This is an excellent way for you to promote your book/s to a Twitter audience of well over 22,000.

To have your book/s included in the #BigBookGiveaway, simply send TWO copies of each book to:

Iain McGeachin
3 Mcdowall Terrace
Maybole
KA19 7HW

Why two copies?

One copy is included as a competition prize. The second copy is sent directly to one of the 17 regional FareShare branches, or local charity/community groups who FareShare supply quality food to, and given to the volunteers there.

Childrens Books.

The situation is slightly different for childrens books.

Again, TWO copies of each title are requested. And, as before, the first copy is offered as a prize in the #BigBookGiveaway competition.

However, the second copy is sent directly to the good people at Whiteleys Retreat, to add to the children’s library there.
