Agent Spotlight & Agent Spotlight Updates

  • Agent Spotlights & Interviews have been updated through the letter "K" as of 3/28/2024 and many have been reviewed by the agents. Look for more information as I find the time to update more agent spotlights.


Today I'm super excited to be participating in the Indie Author Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Krazy Book Lady. This gives me a chance to spotlight some fantastic self-published books that you might not heard about.

I'm really glad I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Krazy Book Lady are hosting this because I know it's so much harder for self-published authors to spread the word about their books. But I've noticed more book bloggers featuring self-published authors and I'm really happy for this. Because there is no right or wrong way to publish a book as long as you produce a quality book. It's just whatever path is right for each author.

So today I went to the bookstore and went on another shopping spree of books I've either read and liked or heard about and am wanting to read.

 Sorry but OUBLIETTE insisted on having its own line.

So you can click on the links below for a description of the books from Goodreads


A few of these books are the second books in the series and when I checked Amazon Kindle Store, the first book was free.

So three winners will win an e-book of their choice. Don't have an e-reader? Not a problem. I don't and downloaded the Kindle for computers and can now read books on my laptop.

To enter, all you have to do is be a follower (click the button on the right) and leave a comment telling me what book you'd like by midnight June 19th. I'll announce the winners on June 25th. If you mention this contest on your blog, Facebook, or Twitter, let me know and I'll give you an extra entry. If your e-mail is not on Blogger, please leave it in your comment so I can contact you if you win. International entries are welcome.

Here's what's coming up:

On Friday I'll be posting my NEVER SURRENDER BLOGFEST post to celebrate the release of Elana Johnson's very, very awesome book SURRENDER. I'll be sharing a very personal story so I hope you'll stop by. There's still time to enter my contest for an ARC of SURRENDER and her e-book REGRET. The link is at the top of the blog as well for other contests going on which include STRUCK by Jennifer Bosworth.

Next Monday I'm interviewing Lynda Mullaly Hunt and giving away a copy of ONE FOR THE MURPHYS, a contemporary story I really enjoyed.
And don't forget our Tuesday Tips and Casey's Agent Spotlights on Thursdays.

Hope to see you on Friday!

And here's the rest of the blogs participating in the Blog Hop:
