HOPPY EASTER EGGSTRAVAGANZA GIVEAWAY HOP


Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope you all are safe and healthy and holding up okay during these challenging times. I'm doing pretty good. It's hard living alone through this but I see my boyfriend a few nights a week and walk with a friend at a local park a few days a week. Not being completely isolated really helps. I haven't seen my mom in over a month, but no one at the independent living facility where she lives has gotten sick. We talk every day.

I'm lucky because I'm a contract writer and already work at home, so I'm still working part-time. I'm reading a lot more, which is great, and trying out some new authors. I'm getting a lot of my books through the Libby library app. I just read my first book by Harlan Coban, which I really enjoyed, and am now reading BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY by Ruta Sepetys. I read almost half of it in one day. I didn't realize how much I like historical fiction.

How are you are surviving the Coronavirus?

Today I'm excited to participate in the Hoppy Easter Eggstravaganza Giveaway Hop hosted by BookHounds. I've got a combination of newly released MG and YA books 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. Here are your choices:














  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 of this blog and leave a comment telling me what book you want or that you want the gift card through April 30th. Please also leave your email address with your comment 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.

Here's what's coming up. FYI you can help these authors with their releases of their books by stopping by and entering the contest for a free copy:

Monday, April 20th I have a guest post with debut author Lorial Ryon and her agent Kristy Hunter and a giveaway of Lorial's MG magical realism INTO THE TALL, TALL GRASS and a query critique by Kristy

Monday, April 27th I have an agent spotlight interview with Lindsay Davis and a query critique giveaway 

Wednesday, May 6th,I have an interview with Erin Bowman and a giveaway of her MG THE GIRL AND THE WITCH'S GARDEN and my IWSG post

Monday, May 18th I have an interview with Swati Teerdhala and a giveaway of THE ARCHER AT DAWN 

Wednesday, May 20th, I have an agent spot light interview with Erin Clyburn and a query critique giveaway

Wednesday, June 3rd I have a guest post by debut author Chelsea Ichaso and her agent Kristy Hunter and a giveaway of Chelsea's YA psychological thriller LITTLE CREEPY THINGS and a query critique by Kristy

Hope to see you on Monday!

Glad no one is sick so far at your mom's home. That must be such a relief for you. I have never read Harlan Coban's books, so it was nice to learn you liked his work. I'll skip the give-away. I have way too many unread books. In fact, I'm using this time to make my way through my unread stack. Stay safe and well.
