One-Year Blogoversary Celebration: Grand Finale!!!


Hopefully y'all didn't think that last giveaway was the end... because this is the GRAND FINALE!!!

Austin Boyd, the author of many novels (including Nobody's Child and H2O the Novel), generously offered to giveaway copies of his books to celebrate my blogoversary!

How cool is that? I know some of you really want to read H2O and this is your chance to enter to win that as well as his other books!!

If you'd like to read my review of H2O, or the interview I had with Austin Boyd and Brannon Hollingsworth, just click the links. :) happy

This giveaway includes:

5 copies of H2O the novel by Austin Boyd and Brannon Hollingsworth
5 copies of Nobody's Child by Austin Boyd
and
5 copies of The Mars Hill Classified Trilogy (The Evidence, The Proof, The Return) by Austin Boyd

Plus, each winner will get an Austin Boyd pen and (while supplies last) a Nobody's Child 2012 calendar!!! :) happy

Although I originally stated that there wouldn't be any mandatory entries for the blogoversary celebration, this is an exception. I need to know in which country you live.

 This giveaway is open Internationally, but (at most) there can only be 2 winners for each book that reside outside of the U.S.

Here are the other blogoversary giveaways, in case you missed them:


So that's it, what did you think of the party?? Thanks for visiting and commenting - I hope my blog's second year will be just as much fun! :) happy

And a special thank you to Brandilyn, Camy, DiAnn, Susan, Colleen, and Austin for participating in my blogoversary celebration! You all write great books and are so nice! It wouldn't have been this much fun without all of you! :) happy

  19. I've been seeing a lot on here from you about H20. It sounds intriguing and I've been hoping to pick it up sometime. However, that Mars Trilogy caught my interest too. I guess I'd prefer to read H20 but both would be enjoyable on a quiet evening. Thanks.
