Ripley’s giveaway service is by far one of the best services I have found. I sent my email out to readers and was blown away by their response. Will be signing up for all of Ripley’s giveaways. – Author H.J. Lawson
I have done many promos to build my mailing list, some quite expensive, but none of them gave me the ROI I got from the Ripley’s Booklist Giveaway. I am beyond thrilled and highly recommend this service to other authors. – Raphyel M Jordan, author of the Prossia Series
