Cheating Death is being promoted by its publisher, Hatchette Books, which provided a free review copy to me in return for a review and giveaway post. They'd like to give five of my readers free copies as well. You'll be under no obligation to do anything, but I'm sure Hatchette would like it if you'd tell your friends how much you liked the book. The giveaway is open to residents of US and Canada, no PO Boxes.
I've seen several online headlines today saying that the FTC is going to require bloggers to disclose freebies received in return for reviews, meaning that posts would have to state that the blogger recevied the reviewed product at no cost. To enter this giveaway, leave a comment about this proposed rule. Do you think it is a good idea? Is it Big Brother run amok? If you are a blogger, do you disclose when you get free review products? If you read blogs, do you think bloggers ought to disclose (even if they aren't required to do so)? Leave an email address with your comment. If you leave a second or even third comment I consider substantive to the discussion, I'll give you second and third entries. "Substantive" is more than saying "I agree" and I reserve the right to decide what is substantive. For another entry, blog about this giveaway and leave a comment with a link.
I'll draw a winner on Halloween.
