August of Books Giveaway Hop


Happy Monday Everyone! Today I'm thrilled to be participating in the August of Books Giveaway Hop hosted by It Starts at Midnight and Lonna @ FLYLēF. This is my first time participating in this blog hop, and I'm excited. I love being part of blog hops like this. I have a lot of newly released MG and YA books for you to choose from. 

I want to welcome any new followers. If this is your first time here, I want to let you know a little about what I offer. I mostly blog once a week and feature an interview with debut MG and YA authors with an ARC or book giveaway. Some weeks these authors do a guest post with their literary agents and offer a query critique by their agent as well as a book or ARC giveaway.

I also spotlight literary agents who represent authors who write in children's publishing to make it easier for aspiring writers to know what agents looking for. I do agent spotlight interviews with a query critique giveaway most months. There is a database of over 175 agents on the left sidebar of my blog.

Now onto my giveaway. FYI, 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.



Giveaway Details

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 August 31st. If your e-mail is not on your Google Profile, you must leave it in the comments to enter the contest. Please be sure I have your email address.

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.

Beth Camp said...

Not sure if this is the right place to post my comment, but I found your IWSG post very moving, full of courage, and inspiring. I admire your energy to link up with so many writers -- and your generosity in making so many books available to new readers as well as interviewing other writers. Amazing. Your encouragement means much to writers and readers who yet struggle with pandemic related issues. May you be nurtured by all that you do . . . Best, Beth
PS Now I'm going back to read this month's interview and to follow your blog!
