I have lots of series of paranormal books that I have already read and many are possibly on some people's wishlist. I'd like to share but can't afford to mail them out unless I could mail two or three (or more) at a time. I'm not sure how that's done or if it's ethical.  Anybody got any suggestions?

Make sure they are wishlisted and then list them in the " December 2010 Paranormal WL Books Available", here in the paranormal section, stating you want to send multiples out or list them in the Book Bazaar wishlist thread for sending out multiples.

If you are going to be sending out mutiples only, it is really nice to mention that on your listing.  Tell the criteria, is it first?  Most books?  You can include non WL books on the post if you make it clear that folks can combine WL books and non WL books.

One option is to make a book list of what books you are offering and link to it in the post.  Or in your siggie line.

So I can list wishlist books here?  I am one of those people who like to read the whole series one after another so some of the books will be WL'd but some probably not.  My main question tho is HOW to get them to whoever wants them.  Is it correct that I can post to someone's WL?..and if so, how

If you go to the December wishlist post - soon to need a Jan wishlisted books post - you can list all the books you have available to mail out.  People can pm you with the  books they are interested in.  Then you click on that person's name/profile and go to their wishlist.  When you find the book on their wishlist  click on Post this book -- it will say you are posting this to so-n-so's wishlist.  The trick is that if you want to post another book to that person, you have to go back to their profile  and wishlist to ensure it is posted to that person instead of FIFO( first in first out) . 

Like Emma and Emily said - be sure to put in there multiples only.  I usually say I will give priority to whomever orders the most. 

 

If you have none wishlist books you would like to mail out multiples of, there is a book deal post for paranormals at the top of this page, and you can list books on the book bazaar as well. .

 

edited to add -- if you have a series that has wl and non-wl books - I think it is okay to post in the wishlist thread as long as you clarify that you would like to send the whole series together and that a,b,c are non wl and x,y,z are wl and you would like to  send all 6 to the same place.

Thanks Rachel, that helps and explains a lot. I do appreciate the info.  Now I have to gather the books to get them listed. That might take a day or two to round them up.

And be very clear what your criteria is.  Otherwise you are going to drown in PMs, most asking for a single book.  It is very helpful to go back to your listing and cross off the books that are spoken for.  You go to Edit Post, highlight what you want crossed off and select abc.

The red sticky thread of offers works similarly, but for non WL books.
