Young Adult Giveaway Hop 01/29 – 02/04/2013

28 Jan

Up until a few years ago I don’t recall reading novels in the young adult genre. The Harry Potter and Twilight of the publishing industry didn’t make it on my bookshelf, not because I had something against them, but because well … I had long passed that stage of my life (which I rather refuse to remember it) and because what could they possible have experienced for me to want to know about them, huh?

Well, I was wrong. Here and now mea culpa for being so … shallow. The truth is YA is one of my fav genres now, thanks to quite a few authors whose novels made me fall in love with it. In fact I began writing in this genre myself and I loooove it. Since I’ve recently given away books written by Sherry Gammon and Cindy C Bennett (which are by far my fav authors for this genre) I chose for today’s giveaway YOUNG ADULT HOP Cambria Hebert’s Masquerade. And to make it even more fun I’ll add my own historical YA short story called I Was Here–Before You Came.

Dreaming Of Summer Blog Hop

26 Nov

As an Arizonan by choice I do not dream of summer. I have it ALL year long, or at least the sunshine. But that didn’t stop me from signing up to participate in Dreaming Of Summer Blog Hop organized by Kathy @ I’m A Reader Not A Writer and helped this time by Me, My Shelf and I.

For this hop the one obligatory rule is to host a giveaway for summer/beach read. That simple. Wearing my swim suit, a ton of sunscreen and flip-flops off I went to the beach called Amazon browsing for books. And one of the first books that popped on my browser was… Vlad All Over.

It caught my attention because Vlad is a famous Romanian name (Vlad the Impaler) but also because, in reading its blurb it says the main heroine (an American schoolteacher) goes on a trip to… Romania, the land of Dracula. Wait a minute! I was born and raised in the land of Dracula (and no, I haven’t seen vampires growing up, in case you wondered…). Now with all these tidbits, I had to know more about the book and started reading it through the look inside feature (love Amazon for this!). Needless to say it’s on my TBR list and decided to assign it as the prize for this giveaway.

Based on Amazon Best Seller Rank this book lands at # 11 in Books which means it’s a winner. And the plot happens during summer vacation, which complies with the hop’s rule.

So, for your chance to win an electronic version of Vlad All Over all you have to do is FOLLOW THIS BLOG BY EMAIL by clicking on the button to the right called “Sign me up!” (atop all images) AND leave your answer to the question:

What was your favorite summer read this year?

Mine was The American Sniper by Chris Kyle.

Good luck!
