I get review copies (of books, software, etc.). It’s generally one of the perks of being a writer. But getting and keeping are two different things — I have to house my new review copy and, since I’m a very by-the-book kind of girl, pay taxes on value received.
So, rather than trying to find these books good homes on my own, I’m hoping you will help me. I’m going to set up simple contests and give them away.
The first book up is The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Photography Essentials. It’s a good book — very useful for beginner to intermediate photographers. All you have to do to enter this contest is post a comment below, offering up a tip of your own for freelancers interested in photography. I’ll pick one commenter at random and mail them the book.
For the record, I will mail the book in the cheapest way my post office will offer. I will pay shipping anywhere in the U.S. If you win, but live outside of the U.S., I will ask you to cover the difference in shipping costs.
You have until the end of the day on August 1 to get your name in the hat. The contest closes when the calendar flips to August 2 (EST).
