SPLASH INTO SUMMER GIVEAWAY HOP



Happy Thursday Everyone! Today I'm excited to be participating in the Splash Into Summer Giveaway Hop hosted by Bookhounds. There's a lot of new books that have recently released or will be published later this summer, and I'm excited to share them with you.

You Help Me Help a Friend Who Has Suffered a Tragic Loss? It's Easy!

But before I get to the book selections, I need you to ask you to help me help an author friend who just suffered a tragic loss. Some of you may have seen this post in my last giveaway hop post, but I wanted to post it one more time. Lee McKenzie has been a good friend of mine for years who I met through my blog. Her newest MG fantasy, SOME VERY MESSY MEDIEVAL MAGIC, released on May 15, 2018. Two days later, Lee suffered the tragic loss of her husband due to a sudden heart attack. I also suffered the sudden loss of my own husband a little over four years ago and know firsthand how heartbreaking this loss is.

While we cannot take away Lee's grief, we could show her kindness and friendship by helping her promote her book. I know you all are book lovers and many have your own blogs. I'm hoping that you can do all or some of these easy things to help Lee:

  • Buy Lee's book. An e-book is only $3.99. I just did that.
  • Post about Lee's book on your blog and other social media sites. Ask your friends to help do by shouting out about her book and buying it
Here's a blurb about what the book is about:

Pete’s stuck in medieval England! Pete and his friend Weasel thought they’d closed the Timelock.
But a young page from medieval times, Peter of Bramwell, goes missing. His absence during a critical moment will forever alter history unless he’s found. There’s only one solution—fledgling wizard Pete must take the page’s place. He travels to 1173 England accompanied by Weasel and Fanon, Pete’s alligator familiar. But what if the page remains lost? Will Pete know what to do when the critical moment arrives? Toss in a grumpy Fanon, the dukes’s curious niece, a talking horse, and the Circle of Stones, and Pete quickly realizes he’s in over his young wizard head yet again. 


And some links:

Thanks to any of you who can help out. Now onto the books for this giveaway!

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 and one adult anthology that I'm looking forward to reading. 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.

 
 
 


 
 


 
 
 
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 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:

 Monday, June 18th I have a guest post by author Chrys Frey to celebrate the release of Write with Fey: 10 Sparks to Guide You From Idea to Publication

Monday, June 25th I have a guest post by MG author Diane Magras and her agent Adriann Ranta Zurhellen with a query critique giveaway by Adriann and a book giveaway of THE MAD WOLF'S DAUGHTER by Diane

Wednesday, June 27th I have an agent spotlight interview and query critique giveaway with Colleen Oefelein

Friday, June 29th I'm participating in the I Couldn't Put It Down Giveaway Hop

Tuesday, July 3rd I have an interview with debut author Cindy Baldwin and a giveaway of her MG WHERE THE WATERMELONS GROW and my IWSG post

Hope to see you on Monday!

  1. So many good books. So little time to read. They all sound good. I have three books I've ordered on the way. Yay. Can't believe I'm the first to post here today. Must be sleepy weather. Have a great day. I'm off soon for my book signing. Hope someone buys a book. :)

  6. Lots of good books there, suffering a loss is terrible, 20 years ago in July I lost my dear mother.Three days later was told my husband had a terminal brain tumour.....he passed away 2 months later. At the time I was inconsolable but with help did try to make a new life, hence the poetry.
    It's coming up to that time of year, the loss still remains as you may well agree.

    Yvonne.

  9. Thanks for your generosity in participating in this giveaway! While both *My Plain Jane* and *See All the Stars* are very high on my to-read list, I think it would be best to elect the Amazon gift card if chosen as a winner (that way there are no issues if I acquire either of these titles in the meantime through another contest or a personal purchase :-).

    I follow on GFC as well as bloglovin, and if you want to award me this gem of a new release, try shamy at post dot Harvard dot edu if no other method jumps out at you. Many thanks, Kara S

  17. First, I'm so terribly sorry to hear about Lee's husband's death :-( I am off to buy her new book for my son as soon as I leave here. I can't even imagine ... I've lost far too many people in my life, but truly can't imagine losing my husband so suddenly.

    Second, I would LOVE to have THE BIRD AND THE BLADE if I win!! I am just about bursting for that book!

    Finally, I tweeted about the giveaway: https://twitter.com/hmbryan/status/1007647846974349313?s=19. THANK YOU!
