May I Suggest Giveaway Hop

Happy Friday Everyone! Yay, it's almost the weekend. Just want to remind any writers that I have a number of agent critique giveaway contests listed above and the upcoming ones through June. Then I'll be taking a break from these posts for the summer. You may win a query critique with an agent who could be interested in your manuscript or give you helpful advice.

I’m thrilled to be part of the May I Suggest Giveaway Hop sponsored by Stuck In Books. I hope you find a book you like for yourself, a family member, or a friend in the choices offered.

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. So many good books. I'm especially excited for Megan Whalen Turner's new book. Any other fans of hers out there? 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 May 15th 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.

Here's what's coming up:

Monday, May 8th I've got a guest post by debut author Laurie Forest and a giveaway of her YA fantasy THE BLACK WITCH

Wednesday, May 10th I've got an agent spotlight interview with Lorin Oberweger and a query critique giveaway

Monday, May 15th I've got a guest post by debut author Erin Beaty and her agent Valerie Noble with a query critique giveaway by Valerie and a giveaway of Erin's YA fantasy THE TRAITOR'S KISS

Monday, May 22nd I've got an interview with Kat Zhang and a giveaway of her new MG THE EMPEROR'S RIDDLE

Wednesday, May 24th I've got an agent spotlight interview with Alyssa Jennette and a query critique giveaway.

Hope to see you on Monday!
