Welcome to the Old Bat's Belfry Giveaways Board!
I maintain a board on Pinterest where I keep track of various Speculative Fiction giveaways, contests and sweepstakes; adding and deleting giveaways as they pop up or expire.
From now on I am going to make this board available through this post by embedding the board and assigning it to a page link that you can stop by and check when the spirit moves you. Just click on Giveaways at the top of the home page and you will land right here to see what is new!
Note: Pinterest has managed to make this process very annoying on mobile. Atleast on the phone I recently tested it on. Now a big banner covers 1/2 of the pins asking you to download the pinterest app. There is nothing I can do about that unfortunately. I apologize for the inconvenience.
This is how it all works:
♥ On PC ♥
Clicking on the covers only gives you an option to repin or sign up/in and is only useful if you have or want a Pinterest account. However, if you use a mouse, mousing over the covers will reveal the full description. If you wish to see the entire board without a Pinterest account, simply click on "See on Pinterest" at the bottom. Once there you will see all the books and their descriptions in one place. To enter the contest itself, click on "See on Pinterest", then click on the book cover twice and you'll go straight to the contest page.
♥ On Mobile ♥
You will see nothing but a link that says "Follow Dragons, Heroes and Wizards's board Book Giveaways, Contests, Sweepstakes on Pinterest." Tap the link and you will be taken to a mosaic of book covers similar to what PC viewers see inside this post.
Once you see the mosaic, you do want to click on the individual book covers. This takes you to the pin with its full description. To make things even easier, they also included a thumbnail link at the bottom which takes you back to the mosaic. To enter contest itself, tap the book cover once more and it will load the contest page.
2 Notes: if you are viewing this in a feed reader and board does not load, click on link instead. No Pinterest account is needed to view.

I hope you enjoy this feature!
