Uncorrected Proofs in our giveaways
Posted July 22nd, 2014 by perryd
Hey, everyone. I just wanted to point out that many of the books that we give away in our Monday drawings are uncorrected proof copies, also known as advance reader copies. We gave one away last week, and there's one in this week's drawing, too. These books are printed up in small quantities by publishers like Scholastic and sent out several months prior to a book's publication to reviewers, bloggers, libraries, and the like. They are not the final version (hence 'uncorrected') and sometimes carry a cover different than what will end up on the published book. Since so few are printed, they are a bit special, and they typically have a banner across the cover reading NOT FOR SALE or UNCORRECTED PROOF.
We get a steady stream of these at KidPub, and we try to place them in the Monday giveaway drawing as quickly as we can.
It's easy and free to enter the drawing, just click on the book image over on the bottom left of every KidPub page, or bookmark the giveaway page here on the site. Note that you can enter only once each week (duplicate entries are ignored). We pick the winner on Mondays and send a notification email. You need to be a member to enter; if you aren't a member yet, you can join here. You get a free book when you join, so there's a chance you might get two!
That is all...good luck!
