BEACH READS GIVEAWAY HOP



Happy Friday Everyone I’m thrilled to be part of the Beach Reads Giveaway Hop sponsored by Stuck In Books.

Before I get to the books I've selected, I want to ask for your advice. I'm getting ready to plan the start of my 2018 debut author interview and guest post schedule. I do them all with book giveaways and for any writers, also do some agent/author guest posts with query critique giveaways. What genres would you be interested in seeing and entering the giveaway contests for? I have been doing some MG of all genres, and YA in mostly dystopian, mystery, science fiction, and fantasy. Do you like contemporary, romance, or historical fiction? Also, would you like to see different genres added to my giveaway hops? Thanks to any of you who take the time to respond.

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. I just reserved it at the library. 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 June 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:

Wednesday, June 7th I've got an interview with debut author Leah Henderson and giveaway of her MG contemporary ONE SHADOW on the WALL and my IWSG post

Monday, June 12th I've got an agent spotlight interview with Bibi Lewis and a query critique giveaway

Monday, June 19th I have a guest post with debut author Kayla Olson and possibly her agent with a giveaway of her YA science fiction THE SANDCASTLE EMPIRE

Wednesday, June 21st I have an agent spotlight interview with Kelly Van Sant and a query critique giveaway--my last until the fall

Monday, June 26th I have a guest post with debut author Emily Bain Murphy and her agent Peter Knapp with a giveaway of Erin's YA fantasy THE DISAPPEARANCES and a query critique giveaway by Peter

Hope to see you on Wednesday!

And here's the other blogs participating in this blog hop:

Thanks for some great book ideas. I've already read, and loved Victoria Aveyard & Marissa Meyer's books. (Even though, Heartless is heartbreaking, and I hope she comes out with a follow-up book). I purchased the first books in some of the series above. I typically listen to audio books, so I would prefer the gift card. https://twitter.com/davisbk121/status/871027340310073344

Gearing up for 2018, already - I'm impressed! I'm doing well to keep my head above water here. :) I need to get with the program and follow your example! I love historical fiction, but I do enjoy your your assortment of guests and posts.

Want by Cindy Pon is the book I'd choose. You pretty much cover all the categories I love with your schedule. But might I suggest a peek at cozy mysteries? I know that genre is under-supported and kind of niche in some circles.
