Happy Friday Everyone! I hope you are having a great start of the summer and will have more time to read and relax. I sure am hoping I will--and to work on my current manuscript.

Today I'm excited to participate in the Splash Into Summer Giveway Hop hosted by by BookHounds. I am so grateful to Mary at BookHounds for continuing to host these giveaways because I know they take time for her organize.


Before I get to the giveaway, I have Follower News to share. I usually post this with my Monday post's but I won't be doing one on Monday. For those of you who don't know, Follower News is a way that I help my regular followers when their books release. Because I only post once a week, I cannot participate in a few blog tours for you. However, I'm glad to post about your book release in Follower News. Just e-mail me a two-sentence blurb with your book cover and a few links. This is open to picture book through adult as long as your book is not erotica. You just have to be a follower who regularly visits the blog (once a month is okay) and leaves a comment so I know that you have stopped by.

Today, I have two followers' good news to share. These books are also one of the choices in my giveaway this month.

The first is a new picture book, THE MISSING ALPHABET, by Elaine Kaye. Here's a short blurb: The paper alphabet letters in Gregory Green’s classroom have gone missing, and it’s up to him and his friends to find those missing letters. But will they be able to find the entire alphabet?
General Age Range - Kids 5-8 (Story Picture Book)
EBOOK: Amazon / Nook / Kobo
PRINT: Amazon 

And Elizabeth Seckman has a new Adult book, HOOSIER DAD. Here's a
short blurb: Rich Cooper is juggling a lot- a bar, a construction company, two daughters, and a monster of an ex-wife who is threatening to take his girls. His only hope of winning is in the hands of topnotch attorney Sarah Andrews, the woman whose heart he broke years ago. 

I've also got a lot of other new releases to share with you this month. 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 books and recent books by followers that I hope you're looking forward to reading. Remember, 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 telling me what book you want or that you want the gift card through June 30th. 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. I will also give you an extra entry if you follow me on Twitter and let me know this. You must be 13 years old or older to enter. This giveaway is International as long as the Book Depository ships there for free.
