We have another contest coming up! This super fun contest is our most low-key and is a great way to advertise your book for FREE. Our Beachy Bookstagram contest boils down to a fun contest based on book photos that are then voted on by the Clean Fiction Community. Instagram is not required in any way despite the name. Whether your book is beach themed OR it is beach ready, we want your photos! Does the book have to be beach themed? No. What book isn’t fun to read at the beach? The answer is none of course. Do you have to be an author to participate? Nope. Can you be an author and participate? Yep. This is purely a contest to see who can take/make the most beachy picture of their favorite book! Is that fun or what? Whether it is a photo with a pair of your favorite flip flops or a scattering of sea shells send in your best Beachy Bookstagram for our Summer Edition.
SUBMISSIONS AND VOTING
Submissions will begin April 17th and end April 29th. Voting will begin May 1st and go through May 13th. Beachy Bookstagram Contest (See our website for the small print).

If you want a fun way to advertise your book or gain social media followers, this contest is for you. We cannot wait to see what BEACHY Bookstagrams you come up with!
