    I’m thinking about donating one of my books to local libraries as a way to gain exposure for my books and/or build up a fan base. Has anyone here tried this method? If so, is it effective or a waste of $?

    I live in a small town, so bear that in mind – our library loves/needs books! Don’t forget local school libraries as well. 🙂

    That’s something I never considered, so considered it after reading it. 😆

    Seems like a good idea. Other places to donate: nursing homes, veterans’ homes, churches, civic organizations (there are several veterans’ organizations near me that have their own lending libraries for members – take one, leave one).
