1. Indie Author Giveaway Hop (INTL)

Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & Krazy Book Lady

Today you can win a copy of indie author Tammy Blackwell's book, Destiny Binds (Timber Wolves, Book 1). OR if you have already read Destiny Binds, you can have Time Mends (Timber Wolves, Book 2) instead.

The winner also gets to choose whether they get a paperback or Kindle copy.

Why did I pick Tammy Blackwell and her books to feature for the Indie Author Giveaway Hop?
  • She's a librarian.
  • Her books are laugh-out-loud funny!
  • Look at those covers. There are some "real" publishers whose covers aren't as good as these!
Seriously, even if you don't win my giveaway, if you love YA paranormal romance (and laughter) you should give these a go. The third book is due out later this year! You can find out more about Tammy at her blog, www.misstammywrites.com.

Remember to check out all the other great blogs on this hop for more chances to win!


Open internationally. To enter you must be over 13 years old or have the permission of a parent/guardian since you may be sharing personal info such as your email address. The winner will be chosen randomly via Rafflecopter. The winner gets to choose either a paperback or a Kindle copy of the book, Destiny Binds, by Tammy Blackwell. Good luck!

Hi everybody! Thanks for stopping by.

It's an awesome, kick-ass fantasy romance with magic, spies, and... chocolate?

Just trust me on this. It's really good.

And if you win but you already have Poison Study, I will substitute any one of Maria V. Snyder's books instead. The winner can also choose an anthology with her writing in it :)

4. Showers of Books - Giveway and Blog Hop (US/CAN)

Thanks to I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & One a Day YA for hosting this blog hop.

Today we are giving away a signed copy of Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini!

From Goodreads:
Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention. 

Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?
