I see many blogs that offer book giveaways and since I'm new to blogging, I wondering if they are necessary to keep blog readers and/or grow readers/followers. Are they?
When you are just starting out blogging, how do you get books to give away?
Is there a way to best promote book giveaways?
When it comes to author interviews along with book giveaways, do you contact the author first? Or contact the publisher?
Is twitter important to giveaways and promoting your blog?
