Sharing today *giveways and etc links*!

Sharing is caring and have not made a post like this in quite a while but on my email received quite a bit of fun places to send you for giveaways and other things that are worth looking into. [Just to clarify I am not having a giveaway but rather sharing some that I found.]
We are going to start off with one of my favorite author's new endeavors and I hope you will heartily support her and share her new site with others.
Book Cover Diva is the brainchild of author, homesteader, frugal living artistic soul Maria Zannini. Along with her Back To Basics  blog where you will find all kinds of useful tips and tricks to use at home and her Facebook Page The Frugal Way Maria has most things covered. Nowadays though she is looking to expand using her background in design and graphic art to create Book Covers, Bookmarks, Business Cards, Trading Cards, Blog Tour Badges and all competitively priced so if you are an author or someone who knows an author looking for someone trustworthy to do the work then head over and check out Maria's site today.

Giveaways are from different sources including an opportunity to win an ereader (Nook Simple Touch or Kindle Paper-White) from author Monica Corwin along with 3 copies of her newest book release "Forbidden Attraction" this one ends on 12/1912.

Silver's Reviews shares her thoughts and is having an author sponsored International giveaway (for old or new blog followers) for one of my newest finds in reading in the crime thriller drama  Murder Takes Time  ebook copies are up for grabs for 3 lucky winners! (no end date found)
After finding these thought that maybe someone would like to try for a $10 Amazon GC over at Simply Ali's, you have to hurry though it ends at midnight tonight on 12/1/12! She also will give an extra entry and details are on her blog post if you click link. Contest at Ali's is International.

Also a heads up to a blog hop you can join in on to win a brand new Kindle Fire, it is sponsored by 15 authors and will run from 12/14 to 12/21/12. To sign up to participate with your own giveaway on the hop simply click here, for all rules and what the hop is about simply click here to learn more about the Mistletoe Madness Blog Hop.
Now for the easiest giveaway you just need to email author Melissa Walker as she is giving away the following according to the newsletter email I received:
Melissa is offering to send signed bookplates (really these are stickers with a little signature and any personalization you'd like) for the Violet books or Lovestruck Summer or Small Town Sinners or Unbreak My Heart if you're giving the gift of her books this holiday season.

Just email her your address and let her know you want a bookplate, and she'll put it in the mail to you. Do it soon so as to make the holiday deadline! Get in touch at melissacwalker2@gmail.com  with the subject line "Holiday Bookplate." Cool? Cool.
If you want your book to be signed on the page, you can order signed copies of her books from Books of Wonder (She signs there a lot!). They will mail you an autographed copy if you get in touch.  


Over at one of my blogs that I love to read and get book recommendations from there is a comprehensive list of Decembers releases. The Qwillery does an intensive job with this list and I can almost bet there is something on it you want under the Christmas tree!

To top it off last but not least is a new excerpt from authors Ilona Andrews site that features the latest Kate Daniels "Magic Rises" which I am so looking forward to reading along with all the other fans of this urban fantasy series! Be prepared to whine that the book still has a way to go to release but enjoy this snippet provided on the 29th on their blog site by the authors as a thank you to fans!

Thank you for the lovely mention.

I would've stopped by sooner, but Tank was not feeling well. I've been a worried mama all day.

Thanks again, Jackie!

Jackie Burris said...

Hope your boy is lots better, sorry you had another scare Maria as they seem to keep coming. :-(

You are welcome, I would have done it sooner but time kept getting away from me and keeping me off my computer.

I've seen some of Maria's art work. She did some illustrations for me some years ago which were superb

Jackie Burris said...

Mike hope you still have them as those are collectibles now. :-0
