How Long Before the Winner is announced?  

There are over 80+ novels (e-book, print & audiobook) to be given out from now and leading up to the 7th anniversary of Gay Mystery-Thriller-Suspense FB Group in September and beyond until the end of the year. We want to give every member in the group to have the chance to see all drawings posted, so typically giveaways will last two to five days, depending on the activity in the group. Following the group closely between now and the end of the year will provide you with the most chances to win! 


  • Only Members of Gay Mystery-Thriller-Suspense FB group can enter drawings; all members are eligible, including authors, as they are readers/fans of the genre, too! 
  • Members can enter as many drawings as possible, but please be mindful our goal is to reward as many members as possible throughout the celebration, so multiple-winning members may be avoided unless participating in a particular giveaway dictates otherwise. 
  • Please Do Not Forward this announcement or the rules of the FREE giveaways/drawings to non-members, as they are not eligible to participate–even in joining the group the same day. Though I welcome all new members to the group, the 7th-anniversary celebration is meant to thank and reward all the current and active members who have been loyal to the group over seven years. New members may be eligible on a case-by-case basis when taking into consideration the date of membership. 
  • Non-USA contiguous members may receive an e-book alternative in substitute for a print version of a book due to the costs of postage. Gay Mystery-Thriller-Suspense FB group is a non-profit, non-revenue fan-based group. We do not have the funds for postage outside the country of origin and/or where the author has advised. Winners may offer to cover postage costs of print books if preferred. 
  • Substitutes may be available but are not guaranteed. Any remaining print books on hand will be donated to the library of Lost-N-Found Youth, an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization whose mission is getting homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youths up to age twenty-five off the streets and transition them into more permanent housing.
