BEST OF 2016 GIVEAWAY HOP



Happy Wednesday and Happy New Year Everyone!  I'm really excited about 2017 for the blog. I have a fantastic schedule of interviews with and guest posts by MG and YA debut authors with ARC or book giveaways. For my writer friends, I also have some debut author/agent guest posts with ARC or book giveaways and query critiques by their agents. I'm hoping to schedule some agent spotlights with query critique giveaways as well. I'm also hoping to update some of the agent spotlights already on the blog.

My regular schedule is changing a bit. The first week of the month I'll be posting on Wednesdays instead of Mondays because I joined The Insecure Writer's Support Group that posts the first Wednesday of the month. I'll be posting on Mondays the rest of the month, with an occasional additional Wednesday post. If you are a follower who mostly stops by for these book giveaway hops, I hope you'll start stopping by on other days to enter my other awesome contests.

I’m thrilled to be part of the Best of 2016 Giveaway Hop sponsored by Book Hounds. There were so many good books in 2016 that I had to pick a lot. And I only scratched the surface in choices.

Don’t see a book you like? You can win a $10.00 Amazon Gift Card instead. I hope you'll all enter to win a book or gift card for yourself or as a gift for someone.

So here are your choices. If you want an earlier book in any of these series, you can pick that instead. You can find descriptions of these books on Goodreads.

 


 


 


 


 

 If you haven't found a book you want, you can win a $10 Amazon Gift Card.


To enter, all you need to do is be a follower anyway you want and leave a comment through January 31st telling me the book you want to win or if you want to win the Gift Card instead. If your e-mail is not on your Google Profile, you must leave it in the comments to enter the contest.

If you mention this contest on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog, mention this in the comments and I'll give you an extra entry. You must be 13 or older to enter. International entries are welcome as long as The Book Depository ships to you for free.

To find all the blogs participating in this blog hop, go to Book Hounds' blog.

Here's what's coming up:


Monday January 23rd, I'll be interviewing debut author Brianna Shields with a giveaway of her YA fantasy POISON'S KISS

Monday January 30th, debut author Celeste Lin will be here doing a guest post with her agent Rosemary Stimola and a giveaway of Celeste's MG THE BRIDE FROM HUNAN

Monday February 6th, debut author Dana Langer will be doing a guest post with a giveaway of her MG fantasy SIREN SISTERS

Monday February 13th debut author Elly Blake will be here doing a guest post with her agent Suzie Townsend with a giveaway of Elly's YA fantasy FROSTBLOOD and a a query critique giveaway by Suzie

Hope to see you on Monday!
