I’m back from two weeks of searching for a new place to live. We “think” we may have found the right spot, but so far, no house, so no announcement. Having the freedom to move anywhere we can afford is daunting and exhilarating at the same time. All those options!
Meantime, my wonderful friends are busily publishing books. And many of them are giving away copies to lucky readers. So for fun I thought I’d list a few giveaways to tantalize you. What better way to find a new author to love?
First, right here on this blog, Joanna Campbell Slan gave a wonderful interview and you still have until midnight to comment on that particular post to win one of two paper copies of Paper, Scissors, Death or one of Joanna’s Kindle short stories.
Next, if you haven’t commented on any of my List posts for the month of April, then by all means, do. I’ll draw a winner for an autographed book at month’s end. There were two different lists to choose from: All Those Things I Don’t Want to Read About and Forever and Always. By the way, I was amazed at the number of you who don’t like paranormal elements in your novels. (Just a side note.)
Have you tried the website Fresh Fiction? Right now they have a massive number of giveaways in progress. I’ve given away cool things there myself, and the only thing you should know is that by entering, you’re signed up for the newsletter of the author giving away his/her book and assorted goodies.
Bookreporter gives away advance copies of upcoming books, and has a wonderful newsletter to boot. Remember Serena Miller, who I interviewed here? Through Bookreporter her publisher is giving away 50 copies of her new book to lucky readers–and you will be lucky if you get one, since I’ve read it and it’s wonderful.
Last but not least, Book Trib is doing a smash-up scavenger hunt for my buddy Diane Chamberlain, with giveaways and all kinds of fun. This is one promo event you don’t want to miss. Meantime tune in next Tuesday for a Write Way blog with Diane, who’s going to tell us a little about the new book, The Good Father, and the way she writes.
That should keep you busy, right? Good luck and have fun. Remember, you can’t have too many good books to read. It’s scientifically impossible.
