GRATITUDE GIVEAWAY HOP


Happy Tuesday Everyone! Today I'm excited to participate in the Gratitude Giveaway Hop hosted by BookHounds. This is my chance to say thank you to all of you wonderful followers. Because followers are what make blogging worthwhile. So thank you very much for stopping by anytime that you do.

I want to mention that on the first Wednesday and Mondays the rest of the month I feature a debut MG and YA author in an interview or guest post with a book giveaway. Some involve a guest post with their agent and a query critique giveaway too. If any of you are writers, I'm also doing more agent spotlight interviews with query critique giveaways. These query critiques are a great opportunity to get feedback from an agent on your query and personal communication the agent.

I hope you'll all stop by other times and take advantage of these other book and agent giveaways other than these giveaway hops. Things will be quieter until the beginning of 2018, but will really pick up then.

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. I've got a combination of MG and YA. If you want an earlier book in any of these series, you can pick that instead as long as it doesn't cost more than the book here. You can find descriptions of these books on Goodreads. Sorry that there are so many book choices but there are SO many good books these last few months. And sorry that blogger would not align these correctly.

 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 

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 November 30th 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:

I'm off on Monday, November 20th for the holidays

Monday, November 27th I have an interview with author and follower Stephanie Faris and a giveaway of her MG chapter book PIPER MORGAN PLANS A PARTY

Wednesday, December 6th I have a guest post with debut author Amanda Searcy and a giveaway of her YA psychological thriller THE TRUTH BENEATH THE LIES and my IWSG post
